Just a couple of cakes

Here's a cake I decorated yesterday just to have something to go out in the case.  I think it was gone by the time I got to work this morning.  At least I didn't see it.  We got some new tips with very small openings that make it easy to make the "strings", as we call them.

We had more orders to do today than we usually do on Monday.  We had one order for 10:30 that I didn't find until 11:00, so I made it right away.  Then when I came back from lunch I found out that I had made it the wrong size, so I had to start over! 

I don't think anyone makes pies or rolls anymore.  I can't believe all the pies and rolls that we have sold already. 

Since I went in to work early this morning, I got home in time to cook dinner.  I made potato soup, and while the potatoes were cooking, I made a pumpkin pie.  Of course it is still cooling, but hubby will probably have a piece before he goes to bed tonight.  If I don't have room to put pies and such in the frig, I just stick them out in the BBQ grill.  That only works when the weather is cool, of course.  Right now, it is perfect, in the 40s. 

I was busy all day today, but don't remember a lot of it.  I did get a call late this afternoon that was interesting.  The customer called to order a cake with Tinkerbell for a guy.  It was a joke of some sort.  So this is what I came up with.  Hope they like it!


Hubby is into the pie already!  Think I may go have a piece, too, then watch a little football.

    There were two raccoons out on my deck last week. It's the first time I've seen more than one out there. If I tried to put anything out there they'd get into it for sure. I think even if I put a lock on the grill they'd knock the grill over trying to get to it.

  3. My grill is on our screened in back porch. I our animals have figured out how to open the door so they can sleep on the porch, but the door and the dogs keep the coons and other critters away. One year our cats discovered that there was a vent in the back. They sat on top of the grill, and stuck their paws through the vent and helped themselves to some ham! Bet that was a funny sight.

  4. I always love to see your cake creations. I feel like running to the store to buy one. πŸ™‚ Not good for the old waist line.

  5. No, I can't eat too much of my own work. Thank goodness I'm not a big sweet eater. I like for them to be eye candy, too. I was looking at some kid's art work today trying to figure out how to transfer the ideas to cakes.
