My first cake since I have been diagnosed with mild Carpel Tunnel Syndrome on both hands(the nerves on the wrist get pressed and causes pain and numbness) . Not in the best of moods these days. The best part is I don’t have to do anything ( good excuse) and the worst part is I have to learn the hard way what I can do and not do by doing it ;-). the computer seem to be a definite no no especially the touch pad, piping also seems to be one but doing fondant cakes I would put it under maybe….with this cake middle of my palm and wrist are were aching after doing the tiny vines and roses on the 60.
Extremely sorry to all those lovely cake decorators that I haven’t come by your page and commented on your lovely creations.
Did any of you have this problem and how did you overcome it?....cos I am still passionate about doing cakes and also getting on the computer or the phone to look at all your lovely creations and commenting. I am trying to avoid surgery as of now and trying to rest my hands as much as possible ( but sometimes the temptation gets the better of me like now :-).....and have four more cakes I need to do before end of this year hopefully it is not too much load!!)
I should be talking about the cake instead of talking about me so sorry about that… It was a last minute request by somebody I couldn’t refuse. Chocolate cake with chocolate filling covered with orange flavoured buttercream and then fondant. Wanted to go subtle this time with the colours. Hope you like it . Got the idea of doing the vines when I went to the display garden at hunter valley and saw all the lovely roses there.
Thank you for looking and for all the lovely support, encouragements and comments that have come my way since I joined Cakesdecor.
