Thank you
 excatly what i was thinking. i dont understand why bakers spend so much time on designing cake - emailing etc without a down payment.honestly i wouldnt have lied to this PITA customer. i would have told her the truth. that you have asked for 5 cakes and never actually placed an order. i run a business and i cannot spend this amount of my time and energy on someone who doesnt place an order with me.END...shes gone!!sorry this happened to you.

i dont know what has been happening to my buttercreme lately. i use indydebi (sorry sp) receipe. or wilton if i need to make vegan. sometimes it comes out great and others it looks like paste. i have to throw it away. ive attached a pic of the paste i made this weekend. three batches i had to throw out!! now with the holidays coming up i need to get this under control. im wasting too much time and money for the disasterous buttercreme. could over mixing when i...
just wanted to thank you blakescakes colababy normita again for all your help the other night.my only regret is i didnt put the redstripes on the sides. the humidity was horrible yesterday. actually the weather man said the humidity was like being in cuba or miami.and since the cake needed to be on display til saturday i didnt need them to look like candy canes!
