More cakes

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've got a few more cakes to show you.

This one was for a 60th wedding anniversary party. The lady who ordered it wanted it all white which was kind of hard for me to do. I like a little color in my cakes. But she was very happy with it, so I guess that's all that matters. The hardest thing about this cake was that it was a chocolate cake covered with white buttercream. I don't like doing white over chocolate because I'm always afraid there will be a stray crumb that will peek through. I made the bow on top by following Lisa's fondant bow tutorial. This is actually my back-up bow which turned out a lot flatter than the one I intended to use. The other one wasn't hard enough because I didn't have any of that tylose powder stuff, but this one worked fine.

This one was for my friend E.'s husband's birthday. They're Mississippi State fans and took this cake tailgating with them Saturday.

This last one was ordered for an office birthday party. The lady who ordered it wanted chocolate cake with chocolate icing and other than that didn't care what I made it look like. So I had to add a little color to it with the roses.

Other than making cakes, I haven't been doing much else besides cooking and cleaning. Oh yeah, and our friends R and L have gotten us hooked on Battlestar Galactica. So we've been watching DVDs of that. We're about halfway through the second season and we're hoping to finish all of them before the new season starts. At the rate we're going, I don't think that'll be a problem. Yeah, I know, I'm a nerd. Who watches science fiction shows. There are worse things to be in life. :-)
