Default MMTPT278~November 26, 2013~Let's Take a Cake Walk

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #278

LET'S TAKE A CAKE WALK

Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

It's Gabby (gabalot) here and this is my story!

As most of you may recall, I was tickled by Susie (Susie Australia) a few months ago, at which time Hazy and Lazy came to live with me in Bakersville. I welcomed them into my home and I enjoy them very much. Both girls who are Aussie natives, have adapted to living in the U.S.A., are well and doing good. They like their school, are getting good grades and enjoying learning new things each day. They both enjoy participating in extra-curricular school and community activities. Hazy and Lazy still love to ride bicycles, as do their new Best Buds, Holly and Lolly.


Though the chill of fall is in the air, the girls take a bicycle ride each day after school. Recently, on a particularly chilly afternoon, they stopped at Holly and Lolly’s mother’s bakery to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa. While they were there, they overheard their mothers talking about the town’s upcoming Cake Walk. National Cake Day is on November 27th and the town of Bakersville plans to set the world’s record for the biggest Cake Walk ever held. Being bakers and owning a bakery with big commercial ovens, their mother’s, Marlene and Darlene, volunteered to bake the cakes. They’d been working for weeks, mixing and stirring and pouring and baking, cake after cake after cake. When the cakes were baked and cooled they put them into their giant freezers, to await the day that the team of cake decorators would come to Bakersville to work their magic on the plain cakes of every size, shape and theme, to make them beautiful!


While they were drinking their hot cocoa, the girls overheard Marlene and Darlene say that the team of cake decorators who were coming to town cancelled. Unfortunately, they strayed from their cake decorating talents and tried to bake cookies. They all ended up eating so much chocolate chip cookie dough that they all got sick! They were still sick and they had no choice but to cancel their Bakersville decorating gig. With only three days to go, on their own or even with a few helpers, Marlene and Darlene knew there was no way they could pull it off. After making many calls to try to find another team to work the magic and decorate the ba-zillions of cakes in the freezers, they knew that the Bakersville Cake Walk would have to be cancelled and all of the townspeople would be so sad. Bakersville would never get into the Book of World Records.


Hazy and Lazy knew they had to help. They told Holly and Lolly about the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty and the Teapotters, which is how they came to live in the U.S.A. They were very excited and hoped that the Teapotter Sistahs could make the magic happen! Hazy and Lazy and Holly and Lolly rode their bikes as fast as they could to Gabby’s house. When they arrived, they ran into the house and found Gabby. All four girls, all at the same time, tried to explain the dilemma. She could barely understand what they were saying to her but once she figured it out, she reassured them and called the ever dedicated Sheri (the overseer of the Sistahs.) Gabby explained the predicament to Sheri. Sheri told Gabby that surely they could round up the 42,000 multi-talented Teapotter Sistahs, who would gladly lend a creative helping hand and make this happen! Within moments, the word was out all over the web. Sistahs from all over the world were headed to Bakersville via planes, trains, buses and automobiles. They were determined to make this Cake Walk happen so that Bakersville would get into the Book of World Records! Go Sistah’s!

Challenge Translation:


Bring decorated cakes of all sizes, shapes, themes, colors. Decorate ‘em to the nines and make ‘em shine! WARNING: If you bring a cupcake(s) you’ll have to wait in Bakersville until National Cupcake Day which isn’t until October 18, 2014!

EPEC-extra points for extra cakes:

for not licking the spatula! Hee!


A special thanks to Sabrina for her help.

And it's Sabrina here with some housekeeping stuff .
Destination Station:

The Destination this week is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.

It is our goal to surprise each and every Teapotter that is participating in this monthly card swap and send their card to in this monthly Tickle a Teapotter card swap with a handmade card from another Teapotter! You know, give them a little tickle!

To accomplish that I have started this new thread: Tickle a Teapotter ~ Let's Take a Cake Walk in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions. Please pay attention to the guidelines!!


Here's the link to our bakery gallery this week: MMTPT278 Let's Take a Cake Walk
Gabby's fabby card is HERE .


Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!


If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

I never like making my own birthday cake, but I'm sure Gabby thoroughly enjoyed decorating her gorgeous cake card yesterday!! I could hack that, alright.
Keep on enjoying the birthday fun today, Gabby - and thanks for being a wonderful hostess.

Also celebrating a birthday this week is

Here's mine, Gabby!

MMTPT278 Cake Fun
Still trying to figure out one with my Diva Chef - I don't think her cake is big enough to really qualify on its own.
And having more than once made "tiered" cards inspired by various cake-based IC challenges, I'm tempted by that too. Decorating card cakes is WAY less tiring on the hands than decorating real ones, LOL. And a lot faster, too.

Here's a photo of the one I made for my brother's wedding. Winter - obviously . It took me two goes to make the little church, the first one was a bit bockety. The Celtic lace knots were taken from a detail in the bride's antique wedding dress, and were used on the invitation. Boy, were they tedious to make!! I made them in two sizes and made enough spares to allow for breakages; the leftovers got used up on Christmas cards that year.
And this reminds me of the cake I decorated for my BFF - a regular tiered cake made by the groom and with almond paste added by his mother. I'd decorated it with pretty sugar flowers and set it up - and next time I looked, the bride's father had added a little rock-climbing figure abseiling down it to represent the groom .

Fun challenge Gabby. I have tons of cupcake stuff but actually not too many stamps with a regular cake on it. Mudpie came to my rescue.

Wintery cold here in central Ohio today. Happy Turkey Day to all in the USA.

Heart THANK YOU ALL!

I had a BLAST hosting this Cake Walk Tickle challenge! Hope ya'll had as much fun decorating a cake as I did! I have a feeling that Bakersville is gonna make it into the World Record Book! Hee!

BTW, the reason I picked to celebrate National Cake Day (11.26) is that my birthday was 11.25 and we always have a great cake. This year we had a wonderful Tiramisu. It was mmm, mmm good! In this case I had my cake and ate it, too! Hee!

My card.

Thanks for looking!
