OMG! OMG! OMG!


She must have really liked that cake! I just got an email from her for a birthday cake for her soon-to-be step son's birthday this weekend! I must have really been stressing out over nothing! icon_wink.gif

Did it look exactly like the example cake- no- however, you did tell her that to begin with. I would probably not be satisfied with the cake I made either- because I am my own worst critic. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you cake! If she liked it- then you are good to go!
If you can't be good- be good at it.

See, all that wasted stress for nothing! This cake, as well as your others, are beautiful . . . I saved some of them in my favs!

I honestly dont see anything wrong with it. You explained to her that it would not look exactly the same. I think people sometimes think we are machines, but we arent. No matter how hard I try I cannot replicate someone elses work, not that I would want to either. There will always be subtle touches that reflect my own personality and my expertise.

With that being said, my best cakes are the ones I design myself, not the ones that someone brings me a pictures of and says copy this. That is because I play to my strengths and leave my weaknesses, like piping, off the design. Next time you can surely try to steer the cutomer in another direction, or try explaining how fabulous it will look with fondant because it will create a depth that you cant achieve with BC. Or how much more detailed you can get with the fondant.

You are sooo like me! Freaked out & probably produced some kind of skin blemish over this thing & she was totally satisfied!!

Try not to stress yourself out!!!

Well I saw this thread, when you first posted, and did not read to the end, today I read to the end, and I also looked at your cakes, and your cakes are amazing, and like others said, I liked your version better, and you see you were just stressing for nothing, the customer wants to order again, keep up the good work and Congrats.
