Decorating with a two year old ... sigh - Page 5

post #61 of 64
I have twin two yr old boys and a five yr old dd....I stopped decorating for a while because of my last decorating disaster- I was attacked by a rottweiler the night I was supposed to decorate a cake for a baby shower. Needless to say, I have not much right arm left. Then, I had kids, three of them.

My daughter wanted a Princess Castle cake for her 5th birthday. I thought, well I will try it and see how far I get with the bum arm - at least it is for her and not a paying customer. I had to wait until they were all asleep- 9:30pm and I worked on it until 4am. I had to take several breaks in between because of the cramping in my arm. But, I got it done and it was the best cake I ever did - a five tiered masterpiece rivalling any wedding cake you ever saw (in fondant and buttercream). And, thanks to you guys, the best tasting! I got so many great tips from this site. I just remember how much I love being creative with cake and sugar! It is my artistic medium. icon_smile.gif

But, at 4am, I could not go to sleep worried I would wake up and find the twins sitting in the middle of the dining room table eating cake. I slept in my DD's bed that night so I could hear them if they got up. But, thank God that did not happen. The most harrowing was my husband driving us to Chuck E Cheeses with this monstrosity in the back of the van with me holding it. Along with twin Thomas Tank Engine cakes. Yes, I did theirs too. I thought I was going to be mobbed getting into Chuck E Cheeses by the mothers all asking what bakery that the castle came from. Now, I have everyone wanting cakes. I am deciding if I will be able to launch into this business after so much time away from it, and little kids on each leg trying to pull my pants off too (yes, this happens to me as well). My twins either try to kill each other or try to swing from the ceiling fan when my attention is not on them exclusively. Yipes! What should I do? I have someone at my husband's work who is getting married and his fiance is looking at $5,000 cakes! He took my pics to her and she is interested. I would love to make a $5,000 cake! Then again, how do you transport that cake? That is what I am afraid of. And of course I would die if I woke up and found the twins in the middle of the dining room table eating a $5K cake!!! Any advice? Any encouragement? HELP!

I did not lose my arm, but I think I lost my mind icon_confused.gif I have nerve and muscle damage now not to mention an ugly scar. Piping with a bag gets painful quick. the forearm muscle cramps and balls up. That is why I have to take frequent breaks while trying to decorate. I have pics of the castle and I will try to upload.
