CAKE! The Wedding Edition

I've been doing a LOT of wedding cakes recently.

I really love this cake. It's a really small cake for a small wedding.
Ah this cake. A total disaster. It looks fine, but by the time they picked it up 6 hours late, it was not so great. Heat and humidity are the enemy of wedding cakes. Many of the leaves had fallen off the cake and the icing was separating from the cake, it was horrible. I wasn't there when the cake was picked up (they were 6 hours late) but I have photos sent to me by the person who picked it up. I can't get them to upload for some reason.
Laura's cake. This wedding actually took place the Saturday that Ike hit so it was HORRIBLY humid. The cake was to be picked up on Friday before the wedding and transported a good 90 minutes away. I was so very freaked out by the wedding cake from the weekend before that I begged the person picking up to come back in the morning and get the cake when it was completely frozen. I knew that otherwise the cake would be a complete disaster when it arrived because the person picking up didn't have great air conditioning in his car. Luckily he understood.
This photo didn't come out good at all.
I thought I would hate this cake when it was ordered. Then I actually made it.
And loved it.
This cake is set up on three stands so they near each other but not on top. It is absolutely beautiful.

I have three wedding cakes for this Saturday so.... more photos to come.

Moving on...
I've taken the next steps to becoming a Crazy Cat lady. I adopted two new kittens. Actually one is mine and the other is D's.

The black and white one is mine and her name is Spot. The ragdoll is D's kitty, her name is Fideaux.

This is Sunshine on the first day she accepted the intrusion of the kittens in her life. It took a couple of weeks but she finally stopped hissing and swatting them.

Fideaux's name is actually Fearless Fideaux because she has BIG BRASS BALLS. From the moment she got here she was climbing everything and into whatever she could. Unlike Spot who spent 6 hours straight sitting in her kitty cave because she was afraid of everything. Fideaux even went so far as to pounce on Sunshine which of course pissed off Sunshine and cause her to hiss and smack. Didn't faze her a bit. Now Sunshine has accepted her role as adopted mother and will groom the kittens. Fideaux loves it but Spot is still scared of Sunshine so she cowers when it's bath time. lol!

Anyway, they are little shitheads who get into everything and climb whatever they can get their claws into. Luckily they are super sweet and amazingly cute, which means I haven't killed them yet.
