I am planning entries for a cake show in May. I finally sat down to work out a schedule to get everything done on time.....and guess what?? The show is in three, yes THREE, weeks! Yikes! How did that happen??? Last time I looked it was 6 weeks away. Oh, and did I mention I doing FOUR entries?!?! Well, four is what's planned, but I've learned over the years it's quality over quantity! So, four are planned, and I will make a valiant effort to put forth my best work for them all, but if some don't get done, they don't get done.
I am doing a wedding cake (3-tier), an any occasion cake (2-tier), another any occasion cake (1-tier) that will be buttercream, and an International/Special technique cake (1-tier) that will be lambeth.
Thankfully I have no plans for any weekends (and need to keep it that way!), so between working after work and having weekends free, I should have enough time to get it all done. Just need to stick to the schedule I made!
I'll give a brief description of what's going on the cakes:
Wedding Cake: oriental stringwork, gumpaste daffodils, stephanotis, and hydrangea
Tiered Any Occasion: quilting, piping, gumpaste bow
Non-Tiered Any Occasion: buttercream piping
Int/Spec Technique: lambeth
Wish me luck! I'll try to post every few days or so and let you know how the plans are coming. I may or may not include pics - I haven't decided....it also depends on if I remember to take the pics, lol.
