Crafting: A few of my past cakes

I was talking with my recruiter today, (she’s trying to get me a job, not get me back in the military… different kind of recruiter,) and I mentioned that the last time I was unemployed, I learned how to decorate cakes. Well, since she asked nicely, I’m going to post some of the pics that I have of my past cakes. (Kim has more… I only have the last couple…)

Here’s a quick PowerPoint that I made years ago for some guys that didn’t believe that I actually made Brian’s wedding cake.

Sir Cakes-a-lot

Here’s what it looked like when I set it up at the reception…

I know you can't see it, but it's a ceramic figuring on the top of the cake.

Here’s the wedding cake for Sarah:

This was a fall-themed wedding... (Actually, I think that it's been two years now...)

Here’s the Groom’s Cake for Sarah:

Groom's cake turned out well...

The little tuxedos on the strawberries were the hardest to cope with, one, because they aren’t in season, and I had to go through literally a bushel of strawberries to get the few that I did use… (we were eating strawberry shortcake for awhile after making these…) And two, because I dropped a whole tray of completed strawberries on the floor, so I had to start over again. It was the morning of the wedding and I swear I almost started crying… And, if I weren’t a man, and had witnesses at the time, I probably would have.

Well, I thought that I had more photos, but it looks like I will have to get Kim to post some later.

I’ll get back to the job search now… Talk to you all later.
