The Day Of Bryan

Today was the Day of Bryan.

Purple, yellow and white.
Not sure the significants.
Then Bryan showed up to get CAKE.

I had the urge to go home and watch Life Of Brian.
This is my NEW favorite wedding cake.
All three tiers go on separate plates of different heights.
I'd show you how THAT would look, but my vendor fucked up and didn't send me the bottoms of the cake stands. They are being over nighted, guaranteed delivery of noon. I had to call my customer and get her to change her pick up to 1:30 pm instead of 10 am.

Tomorrow I have to finish the grooms cake for this order, then do the decor on the three tiered stacked cake that will be a replica of my display cake. I've already done that grooms cake.

Okay, off to bed now. 5 am is awfully early!

Day Of No Rest

Wow, day off. Sooooo busy. D back in town. All day out. Shopping, shopping, shopping. Got $20 in free stuff from HAPPY sales person we chatted up while D bought jeans. Got free chocolate from the Godiva guy we chatted up. Got a chair massage. Got called a bitch by a minimum wage earning cashier. Told a state trooper he was cutting in line and got him all flustered, though I was just kidding him, he still let us in front of him and told me he'd come visit me at the store. And now... I'm tired. good night!

Good Day

Got out of bed around 11 am. Colored my hair. Took shower. Shaved legs, etc. Got my ass kicked in Magic three times. Got birthday pressie! Magic cards and gift certificate to comic book & game store. *SQUEEEEEE!!!* Can't stop thinking about all the cool, fun stuff in the store that I want! My brain may explode. Happily!

Need to sleep now, so very tired. So happy, such a good day!

Why Other Bakeries Suck

I'd like to thank a local bakery just south of the one I work at for being a complete douchebag to one of my customers. My customer came to me last minute wanting to know if I could do a cake for them, I said if it was simple, yes. I told her any of the kits in the book are simple and then she asked me of she could have the cake half chocolate and half white, I said sure, we do that all the time. Then she told me that this other bakery told hey they couldn't do a half white and half chocolate cake for her. I corrected her, they WOULDN'T. Doing a cake half and half is easy, they just wanted to be jerks. I told her to come back in 45 minutes and I'd have her cake done - it only took 15 but I had some orders to take. She was happy.

Yesterday was a health inspection by the city. I had a list of things that we were in violation with. Our buckets (can't reuse the ones we've been reusing), the refridgerators (clean the insides better, replace the lights and put covers on the lights) and our vents (clean them). Today was inventory (yuck!). Then CAKES!

This was actually a cake I did on Sunday and just forgot to post. It was one where I matched the napkin. And, well it matches the napkin. Happy customer.

I haven't done a big puppy in a LONG time. This one is white cake with chocolate whipped icing. mmmmmmmm... Though every time I have to do a cake like this I end up with icing all over and today was no different, except it was all chocolate instead of the vanilla so I really looked a mess.

I totally love this! I added the extra 6 cupcakes around the bottom at the customer's request.

Okay, off to bed now.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Shit, 101 today. Yeah, yeah, I know, I live in Texas, I should be used to it. So what? Just because you are used to it doesn't mean you have to like it.

Have to be up early for inventory, nothing much else to say anyway.

My Own Personal Jesus

If you take a GOOD look at my cookie bruise you will see the image of Jesus in it. And by good I mean squint a little and be guided by 'faith' or what not. And before you tell me that I'm a nutter, I want you to take a look at these other 'MIRACULOUS' images of Jesus.

The Shroud of Turin. Which I just would like to add has been debunked though still has a strong following of believers.

Shower Jesus. A huge nasty water spot in a shower that inspired the owners of the house... to sell it for $2000 on eBay!

Tree Jesus. Somewhere in a park in NY. I'm not sure it actually looks like Jesus, I think it kind of looks like Yanni. Though back in the day Yanni was kind of rocking the JC look.

See? Savior/New Age Jazz Composer. A guy has to make some money some how.

And my personal favorite:

Cat Fur Jesus. Why is this my favorite? Because you have to do a lot of squinting or drinking to actually SEE an image of Jesus on this cat! Kind of like my bruise.

See? Jesus! Squint a little, you'll see it. Either that or a grey.

Anal probe anyone?

My coworker enjoyed the Jesus Bruise. This was our conversation:

Me: See my Jesus Bruise.
Her: hahahaha
Me: Squint a little, it's there.
Her: That's crazy.
Me: No crazier than seeing images of Jesus on things.
Her: *trying to ignore me*
Me: The latest one is in the fur of a cat.
Her: A cat?!?
Me: Seriously.
Her: That's crazy.
Me: Yup. We Jews don't do that stuff. We don't run around seeing images of Moses in things.
Her: No kidding. Who knows what Moses looks like anyway.
Me: Charlton Heston of course!

Moving on...

I seem to have been smited... smitten... smoted... er... punished for my Jesus Bruise antics. I have some irritating chest cough thing. It started as a bit of drainage and a tickle in my through now it's a lovely cough. I don't FEEL horrible so it might just be allergy sinus drainage cough thing. I did however make myself some preventative medicine tonight in the form of Jewish Penecillian, i.e. chicken soup with matzoh balls. mmmm... Should be right as rain soon.

NaBloPoMo theme for this month is HOT. Hot... hmmm... I live in Texas in August. I could totally punk out on posting every day and just post the weather because it's HOT right now. The high for today was 103 and tomorrow is supposed to be 104 with chances of thunder storms. Yay, hot and humid.
