My first distaster that I will never forget!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I decided to make a cake with my brother and his family and my family out of pastillage as toppers for my mom's 71st B-day. She is a stroke victim and lives with me. She can not talk so I decided that that cake would be the best cake I ever would make.
So I started way in advance, having never made pastillage "people". All was going well, and on the day before the party, was assembling the cake when my hand by accident hit the foam where all my "people" were sitting on.
They all broke in thousands of pieces! I never cried as much for a cake as I did on that day. icon_cry.gif

I ended up buying a store cake, kept the secret from my mom, since she can understand me, but didnt show my face, otherwise I would just have started crying all over again.


I have a lot more respect for pastillage now icon_twisted.gif

I guess the word "bad" just doesnt cover how crappy I felticon_sad.gif
And it was my first try at making pastillage "people", and they turned out so good! Hand molded! 2 weeks gone down the drain....
I had all the characteristcs of everyone, so my family could have recognized who was who....
And my planb was to place them on the rim of the cake on top of a quilt (fondant) cause my mom used to make quilts.
ONE MISTAKE.......but hey u learn and u continue, right?! thumbs_up.gif
