The PITA cake from H3ll!!! The rantings of a mad(cake)woman - Page 2

Your cake turned out fabulous! Just think of it as a challenge! At least it wasn't a boring cake to make!
You deserve a sleep in and a dinner out or at least a meal cooked by your DH.
I would really love a tutorial on how you made the choc cigarellos !

Congrats!

Thanks to everyone for your comments. Im still recovering from the big weekend, work has not been any better today, but at least the problem was not caused by me (PHEW!!!)

There will be a tutorial on the cigarellos coming up in the next few weeks, when my lovely friend Fran (franjmc) can come and offer her assistance icon_smile.gif

The cake is stunning. So sorry about your frustrating experience. Just wondering,... why did she settle for the choc mud & caramel, if she did not like it when she came for the testing?

A big hug for you from S.Africa

I actually offered her other options, and she said, oh once you eat a bit more it's nice icon_evil.gif
She just decided to go for that one, mind you she took some samples home for her mum as well. So it musnt have been that bad.
I think she just wanted to be an extra big PITA

Beautiful cake! I would never have known there was a single problem-I guess that's the way it's supposed to be-just lovely!
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

Absolutely beautiful cake Nati!!!! I would have never guessed that you had a hard time with it. I'm sure your cigarellos looked much much better than the ones you bought. Looking forward to your tutorial.

I love looking at your cakes and hearing your stories. It's comforting know that even a profession like you has some difficult moments. I just don't think I could have keep my mind focused at 3:00 in the morning. What a great husband to help and support you.

Hope you get some down time to rest up. Thanks for sharing it with us!!!
