Ooh...about the slideshow on my Blog....cakes and stuff

If anyone is wondering, I made some of the cakes featured in the slideshow. I made the pink and purple one for little O's Bday, and also the cupcakes for her Build-A-Bear party. The white and gold cake was for my in-laws anniversary and I did not do that one. Working on designing a fondant covered cake for my friend's baby shower in a couple of weeks.

I am new at this whole fondant covered thing, working with gumpaste figures and all that, but it's pretty fun and I was happy with my initial results.

HOWEVER, I am ALWAYS on the look out for tips and advice, not to mention great recipes. So if you have any, please please post a comment about it and leave those for me. I am also currently having issues on what to fill my cakes with between layers, so if anyone has any suggestions, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks so much!

I saw this website a week or so ago. They are doing a friend's wedding cake in California and I thought the flavors and fillings looked really interesting. Check it out!

Monica, do I look like a sous chef?!? I mean, come on!

No, but seriously, I only wish I could make cakes like that. They sound delish!
