Noms update: I am going on a hiatus until further notice. We are moving back into our condo so, unfortunately, I don't have a lot of room for my baking stuff. Follow me at SuperNoVa Mom if you miss me. :)

Good News: Noms by Nikki is moving back to Northern Virginia
Bad News: Not sure on date and my baking supplies will most likely be in storage until an unknown date...

Molly's Lalaloopsy cake! I typically NEVER use plastic characters on a cake, but 1. they were part of her presents and 2. when you make a cake entirely from scratch (including marshmallow fondant) and don't start until 7:30pm -- once 1am rolls around, the last thing you want to be making is fondant characters!

(sorry for the flash photo -- finished the cake when it was dark out and it was still dark when we cut into it -- birthday cake for breakfast!!)

"Working for "exposure" cheapens all of our work, and perpetuates the perception that cake should be free because we just love it so much. Just say no. Work for cash, not exposure. Exposure doesn't pay the rent."

Recently there has been some buzz about a facility in Austin that is opening this fall, who made a Facebook post wanting one of their fans to make an elaborate, show-stopper type cake serving at least 100 for their Grand Opening, in exchange for a $69.95 "family pass" and.... EXPOSURE.

So many eager cake makers responded that the facility came up with a new plan! Now they want to have an open cake contest TWO WEEKS before the grand opening. From all the entrants, they judge the cakes on looks and taste, and pick a "winner". The "winner" gets to make the same cake AGAIN, two weeks later for the real grand opening. The reward? Still the same. A $69.95 family pass and EXPOSURE.

I have a musician friend who once told me, with a saucy look, that asking a musician to perform for free is like asking a prostitute to turn a trick for free.. .IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.

Why then, are talented cake makers so willing to give it away? The same number of people will see your cake whether the customer pays for it or not. It kind of reminds me of the "sponsored" wedding scam where a bride and groom try to get vendors to provide their products free of charge, in exchange for "advertising" in the wedding program, and let's not forget... EXPOSURE.

How many paid orders would you have to turn down to make 1 (or 2) showpiece cakes? Even if the media shows up at this facility's Grand Opening, would the media worry about making sure you got your exposure? Or would there be a 3-second shot of the cake on the evening news, with no mention of who made it?

Working for "exposure" cheapens all of our work, and perpetuates the perception that cake should be free because we just love it so much. Just say no. Work for cash, not exposure. Exposure doesn't pay the rent.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!! Hope you eat lots of cupcakes!

Okay, I promised a photo of the wedding cake I did a few weeks ago, but this is just a shot with my phone (Instagram), so I will hopefully have the really pretty professional photos from my awesome camera up soon. :)

Anyone in need of a cake this weekend? Made the wrong flavor for the middle tier.. doh! 8 inch yellow cake w/ vanilla buttercream. I will sell for $35 ($60 value). Would look cute with some colored sprinkles or a cute bunting on top.
*does not include a box so bring your own that will fit a 10 inch cake board*
*must pick up today/tonight in Ashburn (Broadlands)*
