I agree with everyone on the cake. Just do your best, do as much as possible ahead of time and be there for your child because that is what is really important.

My son started kindergarten a couple of weeks ago. A few days before school started he asked, "Mommy, are you going to cry when you take me to school the first day?" I said that I didn't think so. He said, "Good, because that would be re-e-ally embarassing." 5 years old and he's already worried about MY behavior! I asked if he thought he would cry and he said that he was a little nervous but he thought he would be ok.

The first day turned out fine and yours will too. Find some other kindergarten moms that are standing in the hall looking lost and go have coffee and cry on each others shoulders.

Kudos to you for making a cake and having your daughter's first day of school!
Having it done the day before your customer will make it way easier on you....and it will still taste just fine icon_smile.gif
My son starts his first day this Thursday...I know I will be so proud of him... I don't think he's going to cry because he went to preschool last year with no problems and no separation anxiety...but I might have some separation anxiety icon_cry.gif
Big hugs to you, and BIG HUGS to all the mommies out there that have their kids starting their first day of school this year icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

Do you have room in this hugfest for one more? Things will be fine mom-she is a big girl now-have a 5 yr old that just started K-garden too so I understand! I think its harder on parents for them to start school because it does mean they are not little anymore and these years will fly by...hugs to both of you!!
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!

BIG HUGS to you!!!!! Mine just went on Wednesday, I walked and left my 3 year old with my mother so I could cry on the way home, a neighbor who I had only waved to before was getting his mail saw me red faced and came out to hug me. The lady in the next house, who has two sons in college, came out and said "Don't cry now, save it for when they call from 1000 miles away saying that they forgot to pay tuition and need $5000 or they can't start classes!" By the time I got home I was laughing, and my daughter loved it.
I would go ahead and finish it the day ahead also. If you use bakery boxes, put that inside of a big plastic bag to insure it keeps fresh if you're worried. And enjoy the day!!!

Big hugs for Calejo! I can't believe you have a cake order on your daughter's 1st day ---- I was a wreck last week for the same reason --- I can't imagine trying to make a cake too!

I just have to say I'm cracking up not only for the Monty Python reference....but that so many others caught it....I guess we all have quite a bit in common!

So ---- I too must give you a shrubbery icon_smile.gif lol

okay, sorry what does shrubbery mean andwhat does RTFLMAO stand for?

I agree that you have aready put in way more work than necessary for your friend. I know you'll do fine with having the cake done and just the way she wants it, just from seeing how much time you put into assuring her happiness over the flavors.

As far as the first day of school, I'm getting that feeling back in my throat just by reading your posts. The hardest part was walking out without them. I have three girls, two are in school and one is still at home. Just remember to take it all in and you will not be alone. There's going to be a room full of mothers and/or fathers feeling the same way you do.

LOTS of hugs,

Rose
