Just made the UGLIEST CAKE EVER!!! (vent) - Page 2

post #16 of 32
FYI...my daughter just looked at your cake and said, "that cake is BEAUTIFUL." (ok..she's 4....but she's seen some pretty nice cakes, so I still say she's a good judge.)

I agree with the other ladies...I always beat myself up over my cakes...and the recipients are always so thrilled... we are our own worst critics...

They will love it. It's very colorful and the flowers are great!

Wow I would love to receive this cake, you did a great job on it and the purple is gorgeous. My purples never come out that way, all of the colors are so rich.

I agree with Jammjenks as well on this one, deliver it to the customer with a smile cause I know they are gonna love it.

Well, Holy Cow, Thanks everyone! I can't believe how nice you all are!! I dropped the cake off this morning, and have not heard any feedback....that's a good thing, I never get feedback from them unless it's bad! LOL!! You all did a great job of making me feel good enough to get thru the delivery!!

Thanks again!!

We are for sure our own worst critics. People who we sell our cakes to would think that our worst night mare of a cake was outstanding. Your cake was clean, well decorated and very professional. You need to give yourself a pat on the back, it looks great!

Ditto what every one says about being our own worst critic.

When I complain about what a disaster my latest cake is my brother always says ...I'm not a cake person so I don't see what you see, all I see is a great cake and if it tastes 1/2 as good as it looks then don't sweat it. People will probably forget what it looks like, but they never forget a bad tasting cake.

I don't think it looks as awful as you think! But I do know how disappointing it is when you have such high hopes and vision for a cake and it doesn't turn out at all like you hoped or expected it too....I've had a few also!

I only wish my ugliest cake looked like that. Tonight I truly made a disaster. I'm thinking of not charging my customer.

Don't be to hard on yourself....your cake looks great! I wish I could make my BC flowers look like yours (I'm not so good at BC flowers).

OK, dont shoot me but I have to agree that the cake is a bit of a wreck. Sorry but you knew it and did not re-do it. Why would you risk your reputation by delivering something that you knew was not up to your usual standard? I do think you do lovely work with your BC flowers I wish I could do them. I just dont get why you did not redo it.

To others who read this: PLEASE do not relpy back to me telling me how hard I was on her. I was only honest. And yes there are plenty of wrecks in my collection. We all have them.

I disagree completely her cake is not a "wreck" and if the whole thread had been read at the last minute the amount needed was changed from 20 people to 50??

This cake is not a wreck!! And your flowers are great!!
