Did you ever forget something really important? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Sadly, I've put cakes in the oven and come back to check on them only to realize that I never turned the oven on! Cooking the cakes seems like a pretty important step to leave out. icon_smile.gif

It all started with me when I was 16 and worked at an ice cream shop, when a customer approached me with a banana split I had made and said that there were no bananas in it icon_confused.gif ! Well needless to say I blamed it on my coworker hahaha...it has been downhill since with my cake making only now I have no one else to blame icon_cry.gif

I forgot a groom's cake. Yep. I proudly delivered the wedding cake, which I had finished ahead of schedule, and then was asked where the groom's cake was. Ack!!!

I went home, baked and decorated the cake. I then delivered it unjust under an hour. I had to cut the cake board, cover it, and make frosting. I was very glad the cake was just a sheet cake with a simple design.

I've forgotten a lot of other stuff too. This was just one if the more memorable.

I just had a really nasty goof up. I'm making a welcome home cake for my brother who has been in Korea for two years. Since he's been away for so long I was really hoping to "wow" him with my newly developed cake skills. He requested red velvet with cream cheese frosting. I live in Toronto and its July... which means that it's like 30 degrees celsius. But it was for my bro so I said okay.

Made the cake yesterday and it was beautiful ( but a bit crumbly due to the heat). Made the icing this morning, filled the cake (with cream cheese frosting) and did a crumb coat. It was so melty that I basically had to work in my open fridge to get it on but I thought it was just the heat. I also couldn't figure out why I had so little frosting when I doubled the recipe.

I just realized that I doubled the recipe for butter and cream cheese but only put in a single recipe of icing sugar. It tastes good but now I've got four layers filled with soft, easy melt frosting. This cake has to last 2 hours on the bus, in the heat and transit here does NOT have AC!

I'd scrape out the filling and add more sugar but I'm worried the cake will break in this heat. And I don't have time to start over!!! Just might cry.

yep totally feel your pain - sorry it happened to you. I've been same lately not feeling well and I did a 2 tier cake. Was only once it was iced and stacked!!! that i realised I had done the bottom tier the wrong colour! luckily enough once I looked at it I did think it looked better all one colour so had to call the client and explain saying "I took a take on it and thought it looked better all one colour" she was more than happy luckily enough but when I realised I'd done it I felt sick as it had lots of decoration on and would have been a disaster to change
