I had a cake commission due today that I just completed. I would have worked on it last night but the kitchen was busy all day and I took Justin to the DMV in the morning which ate so much time.

I'm on Charlie duty today with the remaining guys of the household. Unfortunately I've only had 7 hours sleep in the last 48. Ooo yay that should be fun, not. I'm going to go to sleep now I'm just happy I got the commission done. They said plaid was the favorite color so I decided the spray paint the sides of the cake in plaid. Have you ever tried to paint plaid? Yeah not very easy. Plus I was lighter on frosting then I wanted since I ran out. There is plenty there and it is a super rich frosting so you don't need much but still I would have preferred a thicker coating. I'm sure no one will even notice except me. Next time I do a plaid I'm going to go with my original plan of doing it on fondant first and then putting the fondant slabs on the sides of the cake. I think it would have given a cleaner look plus buttercream doesn't absorb the paint as well and I get more dewing. I have no idea what sort of money I'm getting for this cake. I'll post pictures once they are up loaded. I must say it turned out rather fetching and oddly exactly as I intended. Usually I have an idea in my head and I mod it as I go along. Oh and I swear by all the gods the minute I have any spare money I'm getting a turntable for decorating. Half the issues I have with coloring, straight lines, and even frosting would be solved with a freaking turntable.

I like this one: http://www.amazon.com/August-Thomsen-Corp-612-Decorating/dp/B000BVFYUO/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Wilton is another well known name but their stands tend to break. The one about is well recommended and a reasonable price. *sigh* Someday.
