Cakepro,
Holy cow! Can't believe you didn't have a heart attack or stroke. What stress!!!!!!! Your husband is a Super Saint! I agree with Tye, did you get a lotto ticket? Thanks for sharing your nightmare, just proves to me that I never want to do this as a business or accept money of any kind! My DH would have found something to do outside of the house and I would have dropped on the floor dead if it had happened to me.........

You are all so sweet!!

Hahahaha, that's hilarious about the recommendations to buy a lotto tichet. We actually did...I decided to soothe my frazzled nerves with a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and we bought a single quick-pick lotto ticket for the Texas Mega Millions lotto...estimated jackpot of $256 million. icon_biggrin.gif The drawing is tonight! Everyone pray with me...02, 18, 27, 39, 45...and mega ball 45. I promise you will all get a nice gift if you petition God to make me rich!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thousand dollar Wilton gift certs all around, and your choice of an airbrush system or edible image system!!! LOLOL

Oh, and yes, my husband is an angel. He keeps begging me to open a dessert & coffee bar. I believe he missed his true calling as a chef because he really does love being involved with my cake business. He and my mom set up the dessert table for the Saturday shindig while I stacked and decorated the cake, and he really enjoyed it. The only problem he had was when we made the croquembouche, he kept dipping his fingertips into 310 degree sugar. I laughed so hard because every cream puff he dipped was accompanied by a loud, "OUCH!" By the fourth one, I asked him if he'd do something else for me. Heehee

I agree with the others, I would have broke down realizing the wedding was earlier. The cake looks like you had forever to decorate - it's beautiful! Great job on the cake and keeping yourself together! Kudos to your husband for helping out also. I probably would have strangled my husband if he tried to help. icon_wink.gif

Fantastic job. It's when i read stories like this I'm glad most british cakes are fruit cake which can be made and iced well ahead of the wedding

You forgot the moral of this story.


We must all teach our husbands how to make buttercream icing so we can be free to decorate those rush cakes. icon_lol.gif

happy it turned out so well for you.

Oh My God, if that was me I'd still be standing there with the order in my hand and my mouth open, scream unable to come out.

Well done you for holding it together and getting it done
