To make matters worse, when I went to deliver it, the cake slid in its box when I turned the first corner and one side of roses got smooshed. So I turned home, re-situated it and headed back out. The rest of the ride was as smooth as I could hope for, but when I took the cake out to set it on the table, there was a spot on the top tier where the icing had cracked and drooped a little. I tried my best to fix it with the tools I brought, but it was definitely still noticeable. The clients seemed to be happy with it though, so I guess that's what is important. I just hope it tastes a lot better than I think it looked. The pictures in this post make it look a lot better than I feel it really looked. That's my opinion anyway, and I'm probably the most critical of anything I make.
|I pretty much failed at the making 3 shades of brown. Oh well.|
There were a lot of things I did with this cake that I will do different next time. I also think it's time to put a call in to Grandma for some tips on storing and transporting cakes. I need all the help I can get!
There are no other cake orders in the near future, so hopefully I can get back to posting about house projects and other non-cake related items. Next week you can look forward to a "Louisiana Wedding part II". I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll check back in with you on Monday hopefully. For now, I'm excited to celebrate this weekend! Laissez le Bon Temps Rouler!
