Most Hated/Sick Of Seeing/Tired of Making Cake Design - Page 2

post #16 of 53
I rarely do repeats. I have a lot of brides ask if they just pick something and change the colors. I say, if you are absolutely in love with a design, that's fine, but no, that's not how I do things. And most of the time they are good with that and we come up with something different for them. Since we live at the beach, a lot of people want 'beach cakes', but I think I do a pretty good job of encouraging different ways to incorporate a beachy feel to the cake.

I don't like doing any of my cakes a second time. haha. They are always fun and exciting the first time. But I always groan when someone orders something off my website. "AGAIN????" haha.

i don't really do repeats i always change something. but i don't like cakes that have a lot of red red or black on it. i hate making these two colours and i think it really horrible to feed black or red fondant to the kids... mickey mouse icon_wink.gif for example.

You are not alone on this one... it looks like a 4yr old leveled the cake in my opinion...
Happy to know i'm not the only one who doesn't like them...

I kind of don't like doing the same cake design again either. I almost feel guilty for repeating, but if that's what the customer wants, that's definitely what I'll do for them.

I'm also getting really tired of the white-on-white piping with different patterns on each tier, scrolls, dots, piped diamonds, etc. I can do those in my sleep now...Just kill me!

I'm tired of the topsy-turvy cakes as well, and cupcakes. Not that there aren't a lot of adorable cupcake designs out there, but it seems that there's been 50 cupcake books and magazine covers out in the last couple of years. I'm also sick of the purse cakes.

I don't get too burned out on designs as far as doing them, but I get tired of doing the same flavors all the time. White cake with plain old vanilla BC icing and filling, or if they're REALLY daring they'll get raspberry puree or strawberry BC filling. I wish people would get more creative with their flavors, or ask for unique flavors I haven't done before. And my family only wants chocolate cake for birthdays. I usually sneak and do different variations of chocolate and chocolate icings and fillings, and I love chocolate, but I'd like to experiment a little more.

I hate kit cakes and cakes made in character pans and decorated with the star tip. Won't do either. Icky.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

I like looking at all cakes no matter what design. I'm not tired of any of them yet, except maybe the kit cakes.
Making the cakes is another story though. I did so many beach cake variations that they even spilled over into beach cake sheet cakes....and I live no where near a beach. I'm in MI.
Where I live the basic old BC design with flowers is still normal. Thank goodness that's starting to change though. If it wasn't for CC I would hardly ever (if ever) see a cake other than this.

I second that! And of course, as my avatar not so subtly suggests...SHEET CAKES...(of any kind). But, props to those that make beautiful ones!

Well I must agree with other I have never done a Topsy-Turvy cake but I really don't want to.

I also agree about copy cakes as I call them. I tried explain to the customer that I don't like to do the same cake once but if they insist I tell them it is not going to be exact and hope that will change their minds. I have only had one person ask for the same cake still..

i agree, sorta, with the topsy turvy cakes. if they are done *well* (nati, fran, helen, etc) then i *LOVE* them. BUT i think they are difficult for most decorators to get the "look" right...
