Just back from a trip and making beautiful cakes already!  Wonderful, alek0.  I love the blush on the rose.

Just back from a trip, tackling work issues and creating more cakes - we should all have your energy.

I have the energy, sure, but weather is not cooperating. I made this little arrangement of gumpaste water hyacinth and rose:


but then it got so humid I had to put it in ary box before I finished the cake. So I had to resort to a quick and simple caramel decoration:


Almond cake: crunchy almond base, almond sponge, orange filling, mandarin jam, and fresh fruit (bananas and mangoes).

Humidity has an effect on just about everything - and now your poor cakes are affected. Your still so talented to still create inspite of humid odds.

Well, I've managed a proper decoration in spite of humidity, I've been keeping the heater and a/c on together (crazy, I know, and bf was grumbling but it reduces humidity a lot). The cover of the "box" has not dried firmly enough to stand upright, but at least I got something done, Christmas decorations (gumpaste box & cover, fondant/gumpaste decorations, fondant "paper"), carrot cake:

alek now you've gone and made another simply amazing creation - even have the hoops on top for the hooks to hang on the christmas tree! And the velvety blue background you have this creation posed on - wow, sure makes it stand out and love the colors you have used too.

Boy oh Boy, you sure out-did yourself on that one! I'm with catbird, I'll be right over - as soon as I can swim across the 'small pond' that separates us that is.
