Good save! It still turned out pretty in the end. How did that happen?

I bet that was horrible! However, the re-do looks great! I had a situation where a customer came to pick up a cake and it cracked for some reason. Luckily...I still had some yellow icing and was able to fix it for her!
Did the customer like the redo? Do you know what made the icing fall off? Anyway...for such a disaster...you turned it around really well! thumbs_up.gif

Good recovery!
RR tracks can be a pain, that's why I always always slow down to 25 mph when I go over the really bumpy ones, don't need my car's suspension going out on me or have a cake go flying... and I pass over a set of really really bumpy ones every day I go to work.

Nice save, I think I like the bottom trim better afterwards!!! Pretty cake too by the way... when I saw the after picture I just cringed~ I'd have died, hopefully you can laugh about it now.

Wow, you did a great repair job. That had to be a major jolt to your system to open the box and see your cake looking like that! How fortunate it was only the sides that were damaged, you obviously kept your cool and did a great fix-up, it looks as good or better after the repair! Janice

I am impressed! Way to keep your cool and end up with a beautiful finished product. I also like the bottom border on the redo!
