Another cake!

Just wanted to show another cake I made this weekend!   We sent this cake with the delivery kid and two minutes later he came back and the cake was all smashed up on the bottom.  We had to try and fix it as much as we could in 30 minutes to get it there on time, which was hard because it was covered in fondant and painted.  We got it back to looking good though, and got it to the venue on time. =]

What uuuuuup??

Hey there all.  So this weekend was graduation out here as well as Father's Day tomorrow, so it has been a very busy week. Thursday was nonstop filling and icing cakes, 7 to 5. But time flies when you're having fun. eh? =]  Friday was more decorating, which is fun.  I did a delivery Friday after work with my car. The restaurant was only 3 miles away, but it took me 40 minutes to get there!  First, I was at a standstill on the highway. Of course I had to deliver it during rush hour.  Then the gps told me the place was on the interstate. lol  So I drove around for a bit and finally found it. It was a three tier cake and I found out when I got there that it was for TEN people.  Crazy leftovers. lol  Here's the cake!
Here is another graduation cake I made this week

Today was so busy that I had to help in the kitchen.  I got to scale out 5 lbs of eggs and slice 10 lbs of peaches. Super fun! =]
Then I got to do a delivery in the big van, by myself.  Lots of fun!  =] 

That's all for now!

My first delivery alone!

Hola!  So on Saturday, I made a cake for a bridal shower. It was a four tier cake with sea shells cascading down the front. We didn't put any of the shells or sand on until we got to the venue, to make sure everything would be in place.  So I went on the delivery with the delivery kid(they also ordered a dessert bar) without another pastry chef.  We left the bakery, drove about 10 minutes, and then realized we didn't have the sand for the cake. So we turned around, drove back to the bakery to get the sand, and left again for the restaurant.  We were supposed to be there by 12 to set up because the party started at 1. Well, we ended up getting there at 1:10. =/  So we go in and I start puting the shells on the cake while the delivery kid sets up the dessert bar with the wedding planner.  The tables were in the same area as the guests were seated for lunch, so I had to decorate the cake with everyone glancing over to see.   I finished the cake about 20 minutes later and the bride-to-be came over to see it. She said it was exactly what she wanted, so it was all good.  So that's how my first delivery by myself went!   More to come!

Also, here are pics of a couple other cakes from the last couple weeks.
