Apparently I have a temper... who knew - Page 4

post #46 of 75
I'm so glad I read this!!

I have as yet only done one cake decorating escapade, and I nearly chucked the whole thing out the window when my fondant started splitting and the top layer of cake started to slide!!

There was an unnatural amount of profanity and throwing of spatulas, but with some repair work it came out OK (luckily, it was for my own event so I wasn't letting anyone down ha ha!)

Hubby SHOULD know to keep out of the way, but he dared to try and placate me with "it looks FINE. Nobody will notice" and was immediately bellowed at and a hissy fit ensued!!

Oh well- hopefully I'll learn from my mistakes for next time!

If any of you ever read my facebook, you'll see that today I was ranting and raving about a 6" round cake that was giving me fits today. I threatened to get rid of the 6"round pan AND to tell my son he has to change his weddign cake design because I am not screwing with a 6 incher anymore! (Oh wait! That didn't sound right, did it?) icon_redface.gif



When I have a little extra time, I'm going to throw together an 8/6 and hand him a knife. "Have at it, honey!" He's one of those guys who has to try it himself before he acknowledges his idea was a little off. icon_lol.gif

I almost hate to admit this, but I wish all my cakes were the little 6 inchers. I love those things! They're so damn cute and I never seem to have the trouble others do in decorating them. icon_redface.gif Petit fours are easy for me too, so maybe I'm just backwards...

As I stood with a stunted look on my face looking at the second dropped iced chocolate cake of the night on the floor, my 17 DD had the nerve to laugh!

I quickly reach down and picked up some of the cake and threw it at her! The look on her face was priceless. Mom doesn't do things like that. We laughed and laughed, then I cleaned up the floor and made another! That least I learned to clean a place to put the cake BEFORE you pick it up! LOL And 14 years later she still likes to tell about my melt down.

I did actually cry a bit. But first I swore and threw a chair... icon_redface.gif

This is so not like me! I am curious does caking bring out the worst in everyone? icon_confused.gif

Just needed to take a few mins... Now repair time.



Oh yes! Caking and tempers go hand in hand! Caking is how I first learned how angry & frustrated I could actually get! Like others that have commented, my DH also knew to stay far far away from the crazy woman in the kitchen when she was working on a cake!! icon_lol.gif

I feel soooooo much better after reading through this thread! I've come unglued quite a few times. At times hubby will start the 50 questions kick, but with one look... icon_confused.gif He's learned to just keep time when I call for TIME...I don't watch the clock, but when I yell TIME, someone in the house knows to answer me right away! icon_lol.gif

I've had the cursing, sobbing, I'm never doing another freaking cake again fits! I've had the throw the spatula, fling the icing, kick the cabinet fits. I've had the curse, throw, kick, bang, fling, yell fits. Any of the above will work, it just depends on how far away the deadline is as to which one happens. A few weeks ago, ALL 3 happened in succession and hubby loaded up all 4 kids, and they left home. About an hour later my mom calls asking if it was safe for them to come back home! icon_redface.gif

Glad to know I'm part of an elite group! I think the fits make the cakes better!!!!

laughter isn't the best medicine. It's the cure.

I am so glad everyone is enjoying this thread apparently I needed this... I love to read all the stories. My tantrum was not over after the cake was done. I had it sitting in my dining room waiting pick up this morning and my husband planned a little party last night to watch a sports event. I was a little leery to say the least about my cake being out with a house full of people and so I should of been... A few excited stomps on the floor in excitement from a few excited men. AND... flower fixing time this morning... GRRRR.... It never ends I ended up having a bit of a tantrum at the end of the night as well... icon_redface.gif

Good one Indy! That gave me a good laugh! icon_lol.gif


And.. Yes! Yes! To those evil 6 inch pans! I have NEVER had a 6 inch cake bake up without a freaky looking pointy dome, no matter what recipe I use, or oven temp I use.
I rarely get pointy domes with my bigger pans, maybe once in a blue moon a small dome might happen, but 95% of the time my cakes bake up just fine.

But 6 inchers? I dread having to bake them! I know before they even go in the oven I'll get the pointy domes. I know I'll have to level them off with a knife when they're baked. I know that will become a PIA cause I am not the greatest knife leveler.. icon_surprised.gif

6 inch pans... I dispise them.. They are truly cursed! icon_evil.gif

OMG! I feel so much better now! I thought I was the only one swearing and saying "I'll never do this or that again" or "I need to leave cakes alone". Thanks for the relief. I mainly, do cakes at night when everyone is sleep, so when my family wake up in the morning it is complete. You can't watch me or ask questions when I'm in the zone. Heaven forbid you ask me to teach you how to decorate a cake when I'm working on a project icon_mad.gif ! When I lived with my older sister, she used to call me "The Elf" at that time Keebler elves were popular(LOL). Thanks everyone!

*stands up, looks around room, and waves* Hi, my name is Christy, and while I love caking, it brings out the B in me!

My hubby is one that tries to help and ticks me off worse - though, I have to admit, he's really paid attention and has gotten to be pretty helpful...most of the time.

It seems like every time I do a cake, I have an episode. lol. I'm the most mellow, easy going person around, even with menopause in full gear. But, doing cakes, always brings out that sick feeling in my stomach, wanting to start over, its not turning out feeling. I usually say, I don't want to do cakes anymore, this is the last one. Then, I start looking at everyones pictures, and want to try something new. It takes about a week to get the itch again. Totally understand what you are going through.

This is so meeeeeee! Husband has asked me several times if I am always "going to have an episode" every time I sell a cake! HA!!!

Had to take a potty break, I was laughing so hard icon_lol.gif
I, too, am guilty of colorful language when caking doesn't go well. It's a hobby for me. My DH wants to know why do I do cakes if it upsets me so much when things don't go right. I say (loudly) BECAUSE I ENJOY IT!!!!!! icon_mad.gif
