Well, I did my first 2 tier cake and it was so ugly. It was a hollywood theme cake for a 10 yr old boy that wanted to be a star for a day. His mom said to do yellow stars as close to gold as possible, and some other little symbols. She was scheduled to pick it up on Friday after work. I planned to get the cake done on thursday and any finishing touches Friday before pick up. Well I was in a lot of traffic Friday and I ran out of frosting (powdered sugar) at 11:30pm Thursday night. I was only able to frost the bottom tier which was a square 10 in. When I called her to tell her that I could bring the cake to her she insisted on picking it up. So I rushed and got it done in about an hour and a half..ugh! I'm a newbie so it takes me a few hours. This cake did not turn out the way I had invisioned it. It was so ugly I didn't take a picture of it. She picked it up and I don't think her son like it either. He wasn't smiling not one bit.
