I wanted to complain more about the situation at the house, but I really have to stop that! So, instead, I thought I would participate in a little game going on over at Domestically Challenged? 3baybchicks, and Im Living Proof God Has a Sense of Humor.
They are gathering up all the creative types and letting you show off your abilities or your child's abilities. Since I fall into the 'no child' category, you will be seeing some of my work! Now, technically, my job title is 'creative,' so I thought about posting some of the advertising I have worked on. But, I didn't design it, I just wrote it, so I thought that wouldn't be fair. And then I thought about a fine arts direction, but since the last thing I created was well over ten years ago, I figured that wouldn't really work either. BUT, I do cakes! I decorate a cake like nobody's business. OK, maybe not that great. But I enjoy it. So, here are a few of my favorites. (BTW, if anyone submits one of these to Cake Wrecks, Im going to be upset!)
This is a wedding cake I made for my husband's assistant. I was really excited when I dropped it off. The mother of the bride asked if the cake was 'under that ceramic thing.' I had to explain that the 'ceramic thing' was the cake. I consider that a success.
This one is another wedding cake for a friend. Simple and elegant with a green ribbon that matched the bridesmaids dresses.
This one was a friend of a friends daughters baby shower (uh, yeah, I think! Anyway, I didn't know the mother to be). The funny part was the next day when a coworker showed up and told me they had one of my cakes. (The mother knew where I worked and my coworker immediately knew it had to be me).
The animals on top were hand-molded out of fondant. The stripes and dots were also fondant and the icing was butter cream.
My nephew is hilarious. He is also a little spoiled when it comes to his birthday cakes. So for his 3rd, he got Spiderman. For his 4th, he wanted Spiderman again, but settled on something else. For his 5th, he was just as indecisive, but settled on Wall-e.
So, of course, I can not just draw Wall-e on a cake, nope, I have to make him 3D.
I was a little disappointed that his neck was a wooden dowel and I had to have a small board support his eyes, but the rest is edible.
OK, so that is my art! Head on over to the other blogs to check out some more!
