It is a wonderful cake! I will echo the others as well! Raise the price and get a good nights sleep. The face is incredible and I think the cars look really good! thumbs_up.gif

icon_eek.gif I am in awe of your abilities with canned frosting! I really think it looks great! Ditto about the border and message. $50 is a steal! You can't even buy these anywhere. They'd be a special order, and they'd probably charge $100 minimum.

I've completely been there with feeling like you're at the end. Take a break and look at it with fresh eyes. But don't be harsh on yourself. It looks great -- and she made you use that gross canned icing.

You did a great job! thumbs_up.gif

Honestly, I was scared to look at it once I read that you used canned icing. It is amazing. DO NOT charge her lass that the $50 you told her. It is worth more!!!

As I scrolled down to look at your "problem"; I just went, "Aw..., how cute." You are just too tired to see clearly. The price is cheap.

O thank you guys.Thank you.I did get good night of sleep and after having a dreams of being in prison,woke up all fresh(just kidding).Yeah I did give it a rest and this morning just put some finishing touches. It was soooooooo frustrating yesterday,because nothing seemed to want to stay in place,I guess it was that dang caned icing.Then to make matters worse,the only grass tip I had went down the garbage disposal(just my luck).So here I was without a grass tip,all out of the dang canned icing and completely snowed in.And the cake is due the next morning.Well,what I did is. I just gave up on it,took nice long shower and watched a TV for rest of the night.But I guess my guilt of sitting there and working on it caought up with me and gave me a nightmares about being in the prison,lol.
But you know I tought to myself,if she doesn't like it she can always go and try to buy it somwhere else,right?
So thank you guys,thank you for being there for me.I knew you'd help me get my head screwed back on right.And thats why I love you all.
I'll let you know what they say.

I just can't get over the fact that someone wanted a boxed mix with canned frosting for a custom cake... go figure!!!

That you could work with canned frosting is a miracle!!! That stuff is AWFUL to work with! I would have crumbs EVERYWHERE!!!

I'm sure they loved it and next time, CHARGE MORE!!! I would charge $75 to $100 for that cake.

Your cake is adorable! My nephew loves Thomas and he would just LOVE your cake. I know I am not saying anything here that has not already been said, but I can't believe you did this all in one day with canned frosting!! I am glad you got a good night's rest, and I hope your cake looks better to you now, because it really is amazing. I agree with the others that $50 is a bargain!
