It Is Done!

The front. Yes, the sleigh is made out of poptarts.
Nice landscaping. I want marshmellow bushes.
Elves with packages.
Ohhhh how many of you will be getting that?
Of course Santa has the hook up on the penguin front.

Weekend Cakes

You people and your addiction to pictures of cake. Today is baby shower cakes! I did two variations of the same cake. This is my favorite of the baby shower cakes. I enjoy the cowboy boots.
This is the other one. I forgot to put the little pink toy things on the cake because the lady showed up an hour early and waited around for it to get done. No worries though, she was happy with the cake.

I Blame It On Her Lack Of Oxygen At Birth

Cabbage Patch came into my bedroom and asked me to put her hair in a French Fry. I said "What?" and she said "You know, that braid thing, French fry." French BRAID dear, French BRAID!
New Day, New Cake

Well I've finally made some progress on this damn gingerbread house. I finally feel like I will get it finished and it won't utterly shitty. Though I did tell the store director that I wanted to smash the damn thing and just call it Santa's Bombed Out Shack. He liked that.

I did a lot of cakes today and even some cupcakes, none of them were all that interesting except for this one.

Well that's about it. I'll probably go into work as soon as K gets home. I don't want to lose the momentum on this gingerbread house that I seem to have at the moment. Wish me luck.

Better photos of the Pink cake

In Need Of Motivation

Blah. I just want to sleep for the next 20 hours. But... I CAN'T. As soon as K gets home I have to head back to work. Or I should say to GINGERBREAD HELL. Yes, yes I know this is amusing to many of you that I'm having such difficulty with this damn thing. Fuck off.

Last night Sarge and I headed off to the candy store so I could procure some of the last supplies for the damned house. Sadly I didn't find exactly what I was looking for. Eh, no matter, we had a fun time and somehow mysteriously ended up at Jason's Deli even though we were headed for Chipotle.

Today was yet another day of WORK. I made cakes. Blah. I made a wedding cake. The same damn style as the other wedding cake. Terribly disappointing as I'd very much like to do something DIFFERENT. And if I ever get finished with Gingerbread HELL and finished with the holiday orders I'll have time to do the display wedding cake and you can bet money that it won't look like this!

I did cupcakes today also:

Something for Daisy Scouts. I airbrushed all of the cupcakes. I'm awesome (in my head).

Blah. Not motivated to write more.

Rest For The Wicked

Well I have a day off. But not really. I'm about to get a shower, pick up the last stuff for the gingerbread house and go into WORK. I think I fucking LIVE there. GINGERBREAD HELL! When my sister and I were young we used to joke about what HELL would be like, figuring it would be 100 times worse than ones worst tasks in life. We used to say our hell would be spent in a hot garage with 300 cats having to change litter boxes and feed the cats smelly nasty canned food. Today I think my hell would be me in a gingerbread house that smelled like a cat box and filled with fucking yappy ass crotch sniffing dogs with the occasional cameo by some of my WORST dates eveah. Woah, wow, am I bitter about this? Where did that cookie hate come from?

Moving on....

Yesterday at the end of the day I found a big blob of green icing in my hair.

AND because I know you only come here to see CAKE. Here it is.
Excuse the crappy quality of photos. I only had my cell phone with me.

I'll try to take another photo with my camera today when I go back to gingerbread hell.
Okay, off to shower so I can get this gingerbread thing done.

Had a Bad Day

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every time
And I don't need no carryin' on

Because you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day...

Not been an excellent day. I'm tired, I need a day off to ... I don't know, drink coffee, eat bonbons, read comic books and spend with Bruce Willis. *sigh* Not going to happen. I have to go back up to work tonight to finish some things minus other people in the bakery. Okay enough whining about that... well not really, but I'll add pictures now!! Woohoo!

Part of my Stress

My BORKED Gingerbread house. Fucking gingerbread house. I'm running out of time to work on this bitch and it's getting mutha fuckin' busy in the bakery. I finally got it assembled today - well hopefully, I actually left it right after I put the roof on. Earlier today, as you can see I fucking broke one of the pieces. Thankfully the icing stuff worked to glue it together. I had so much trouble assembling this shit. I got the house put together and then when I went to put the roof on the first time the walls came apart. Fuck. The icing didn't set in the 2 hours like it said it would. Damn. Hopefully when I go to work it won't be in shattered pieces on the floor.

At one point today... I had to do something to de-stress.

I made...


Here is poor amputee gingerman. It's his own fault for having such tasty limbs!

Oh look! It's gingerwoman! See, the curtains do match the carpet. (But trust me, those boobs are FAKE!)

Oh my! Cookie porn! Gingerman and Gingerwoman having sexy time. Oh yeah!

I'm sure I could have been fired for making those. But... WHATEVER! I needed something to amuse myself. I wanted to bring them home so I could take them to Bruce Willis tomorrow but I just couldn't figure out how to get them out of the store without being busted... and not as in them getting broken, as in ME getting BUSTED with them. "Oh... um... what cookies? Oh my... Um.. no, they aren't mine, I swear! I was just holding them for a friend!"

Okay, I'm done whining. Enjoy the cookie porn... I know you are... I know it's making you all hot and soft, like a freshly baked cookie. Mmmmmm... that's making me... HUNGRY!

Busy Day

Lots of cakes to do today. Got called back in late to preform a miracle. Yay me.

No conversation to be had, just look at the cakes.

This cake makes me think of circus clowns. If you know any clowns having a birthday soon, come get the cake. (ps I dropped this cake as I was getting ready to put in the freezer case - luckily the protective plastic case kept it from becoming a pile cake on the floor, but I have to fix the trip tomorrow)

Again with the clown theme! I like the dots!

And blogger is being a bitch so I can't load the last photo.

Off to bed now.

Your intentions are almost always meant well and all this positive karmaic energy is bound to come back to you in a great way!
Going FAST!

I made this cake right before I left work today at 2:30 pm. I stopped by the store right after 4 today (to drop off the gingerbread house kit) and it was GONE! Yikes! I was actually hoping it would stay in the display case for at least a few days. Or maybe even go out of date and be used as a display cake.

This was a baby shower cake. It's very cute, I hope they have some insulin on hand when they eat it because that cake has a LOT of icing on that cake.

This is the other cake I made for the display case. It was still there last I saw.

Gingerbread News

I purchased the kit today at Michael's. This was after an exhaustive search of any place near me that MIGHT have had the kit. And of course I had such a FABULOUS experience with Wally World and the WalMartians. I called them before going up and asked if they had the EXACT gingerbread kit I was looking for, I asked TWICE and was told that YES they DID - in the Christmas section. I go up there and go to the Christmas section only to be told that they weren't sure they had that. Call a manager who knows they HAVE them just not in the BIG Christmas section, it's in the Christmas candy section. Fine. Guess what? They don't have THE gingerbread house kit I was looking for. They have the small one there. I tell the manager that and she says that crafts usually gets the BIG gingerbread house kit so we head off to crafts and find the person who works there and miraculously they DON'T HAVE THE FUCKING GINGERBREAD HOUSE KIT! Yay. I tell the manager that I'm quite unhappy about this since I called the store and was told they had THE EXACT KIT I was looking for. She admits having taken the call but says that she was never asked about the ULTIMATE Gingerbread House Kit. I tell her that YES she was, I asked TWICE and she TWICE said it was in the Christmas section and that I wouldn't have wasted my time going to this store unless I knew that damn kit was there. Stupid bitch. Thankfully Michael's exists. I walked in, ran into an old friend from high school who pointed me to the 5 million gingerbread house kits right away. I got my kit, paid and walked out. Less than 10 minutes total.

So... hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to start the assembly of the house on the base and Tuesday I can start the decorating, Wednesday Sarge and I can go to the candy store and get the last of the decorations that I can't find at the store I work at, leaving Thursday and Friday for the final decorations. Hopefully this will be AWESOME.

Okay, I'm done for now.
