Thank you!

Now three weeks of no cakes, bf has gone on a trip to Australia Sad Hopefully my dummy cakes order will arrive before weekend, so I'll just have fun decorating...

Bug, those Food Network Challenges seem really, really interesting, I saw clips from one on cakewrecks blog, I laughed till I cried...I wish I could see the whole episode of that crazy woman setting the cake on fire. And how it looked afterwards was an improvement compared to how it looked before...

Yeah, some of them are quite the disaster, but there are also some really cool projects. I also like watching Ace of Cakes sometimes. You really have to be a welder, carpenter and baker to crank out some of the cakes people are looking for. Maybe when you have more time, you can also get those trades under your belt  Cheesy.

Did you ever watch Heston Blumenthal? In search of perfection, his tools for making Black forrest gateau included a vacuum cleaner  Grin Grin Grin I would love to try some more involved projects, as a physicist I have an advantage anyway Smiley Some of my decorations I actually did rough calculation how to balance it Smiley

Physicist? That's gotta be such a cool career. I have watched Heston Blumenthal -- molecular gastronomy is very interesting and fun to watch. I didn't see that episode, but I like his show.

Molecular astronomy is indeed quite interesting, but the gadgets are way overpriced, getting pipettes, balances etc. from any lab supplies store is several times cheaper than buying from any chef supplies website Smiley

I've been thinking of doing butterfly bush & butterflies in bass relief rather than 3D, for the top surface of the cake, it woudl still look quite effective.

This weekend just a decoration since bf is in Australia, gumpaste dry flowers arrangement:

Just a decoration? What's the bottom part made out of, styrofoam? It looks very pretty and delish.

It is styrofoam. I usually use small spacer dummies with some rice paper to cover the bottom of it for making toppers since I rarely cover the cakes in fondant or buttercream (bf finds fondant too sweet and buttercream too fatty), since fondant or gumpaste directly on whipped cream melts quickly.

Another astonishing creation, alek0!  Reminds me of a dried flower arrangement I used to have.

Styrofoam. I would have cut into it and probably eaten it anyways.  Grin
