Cake update - part 1

Ok, so last night I got out my practice cake, put the icing on, and airbrushed it lime green and electric blue. Airbrushing comes so natural.  Maybe it's because my daddy used to paint cars.  I suppose I'm a chip off the old block.  Grin.

Then I rolled out the fondant (which I forgot to put gumpaste in); cut out a few designs; cut out the letters with tappits (this is where the gumpaste int he fondant would've been handy - it would've dried faster, thus speeding up my work time, but no, the brain wasn't in 5th gear, if it was in a gear at all); and cut out some funky flowers (yes that's the name of the cutter set).

I finished around 9PM, cleaned up and ate a piece of that cake (and 1/2 a sleeve of girl scout cookies) 'cause I was running all out when I made it home from work and didn't take the time to stop and eat.  

Needless to say, my right hand is hurting very bad.  I need to start using my left hand again, I'm ambidextrous you know - get that from my daddy, too.

Stay tuned for more....
