I am the SAME way! I'm my worst critic, and worry over the cake's taste, the decorations, did I get as close as possible matching colors, and on and on. Each time that I head out the door to a delivery, I think of what I'd do if I fell down the steps and onto the cake. I worry over going around curves, over railroad tracks, somebody riding my bumper, and possibly rearending me...with the cake in the back! Argh! Funny, I always get the compliments (so far!), and get...
Thanks to each of you for the tips. I appreciate the help. Now, off to make more lilies for another cake. Thanks again!!!

This is my first post on this great website. Just wanted to share that I have my very first FBCT in the freezer as we speak. If this one works, I have another cake order for tomorrow that I plan on using this same method on. I have been decorating cakes for 15+ years, but have only recently gone into business for myself. I must say that I love this website, and am already addicted to it, and the information that I'm finding here! Keep sharing and keep those fingers...
