    I haven't been on since I have been busy with making
    cakes for special occassions and also helping cardero
    work on THE MOD SQUAD which requires me to use
    the computer. It's easy for cardero since he uses a
    pencils, paper and ink. If he does need to use the
    computer, it's for some retouches. For me, it's all
    computer work.

    I wanted to share with you all some of the cakes I had
    made.

    I made these for my brother who just turned 18 recently.
    It took me a while to pipe the little dots on the cake.

    I made this cake too because of when he was little, he said he
    was too big for a kids meal. When we got him a big burger,
    he could only eat half. He went back to happy meals.

    Someone ordered a cake and the woman said that she
    wanted something with flowers on it. She's never had
    a really nice cake so she wanted something nice. She
    turned 40 recently. This was done with fondant.
    Cardero said I should stay away from fondant and stick
    with all buttercream icing.

    The next project I had was to make a cake with this on it.
    [​IMG]

    When I saw it, it seemed like a lot of work. Then I found
    a way to make it easy to fill. cardero thought it was a
    hard project to do, but I think I did an ok job.

    This one also took me a while. But I like challenges so the
    harder the better. The customer that purchased it gave me
    extra $. Then she contacted me and said that there was 10
    minutes of taking pictures with family and friends with the
    cake. She couldn't thank me enough and I couldn't say, "You're
    welcome." enough.

    lol...no. I took some fondant and colored some red and green.
    Red for tomatoes and green for pickles. The lettuce is
    buttercream. cardero helps out by making suggestions. He
    suggested not to cover the bun with frosting. To leave it
    as is since it looks like a bun. The cake was more of a hit since
    I used peanut buttercream fillings.

    Thank you. I like making cakes. I just wish I had the work
    space. cardero is very patient when I do have to make cakes.
    I take up the whole kitchen and when I need help cleaning up
    he is there. He is also there if I need some suggestions.
    He said that he is going to make sure I have my own big kitchen
    with double ovens and a walk in fridge to put the cakes in.

    In Cleveland! :facepalm:

    It is a bit ironic because mrscardero is allergic to wheat. Even if she is present during one of the parties she bakes a cake for she can never have a piece of her own art.

    I can only have the icing. It's ok if I can't eat cake. Just as long as others can enjoy it. It's the look on peoples faces that make me happy when they see the cake that they ordered.

    Wow, that makes it even more a labor of love. Reminds me of when I helped my professor with his pig roast, researched it and did everything just right and made dang sure it was the best dang pig roast ever. Nobody noticed that I didn't partake of it, but that was all for the best as I've never had pork, and never will. It was enough to make it a pleasure for others.

    Glad I am not the only one. I guess when there's a lot of people
    no one will know if you had some or not. My family is finally
    starting to realize I can't have cake. I told them that next year
    for my birthday I am going to make myself a cake made from
    rice crispy treats and everyone is going to eat it with me...:drool:

    Here's the first layer of the Hamburger cake.

    Pickles and tomatoes were made from fondant.
