Ella, I don't see anything wrong with your cake, its a fun, happy cake.

 

Here is pic #1.  My castle cale, waiting for customer to pic it up.  Good thing she is a neighbor or I'd be calling her like every 5 minutes.  Today is hot but at least the humidity has calmed down.

Ella, I like your cake! It says 'celebrate!'

Chelle, Garfield is super cute.

Cat, hopefully your event is going well today.

So, I delivered the cake. Grrrr. I was concentrating so hard on how to get the cake to where it needed to be, I forgot to brace it in the box! The cake is on super thick cardboard so I could move it without damaging the cake itself, then wrap any dents with ribbon. It had to ride separate from the pedestal because it's so tall, and would be too top heavy. The topper got dowelled, no question. So, the issue was, I turned a corner (carefully) and the cake slid on it's bigger board, right into the side of the box. Black scrollwork got smeared into the box wall. It happened to be the front of the cake too.

I got to delivery spot (another person is taking the cake the rest of the way to the reception), and had to pry the topper off of the cake to turn it around and hide the damage.

Let me tell you, that topper was NOT going to move when I placed it. So that was a fun mess. Of course, this is that one time that I didn't have any extra icing to do repairs. I had my boyfriend run downtown with some nonskid material I *usually* use, now hopefully the cake makes it to the church on time... and in one piece.

Hi everyone!

 

Well, the event was wonderful...you can see the cake on my cake blog http://catscakesblog.blogspot.com. No, we didn't get a breeze, yes, it was 95 degrees, yes, the guest of honor complained how hot it was while mopping sweat off her forehead ( I got just a little satisfaction from that since the client was standing right next to me when the guest of honor complained) and yes, I have the most amazing hubby who brought the cake over when it was time to present it so it wouldn't melt in the heat!!!  I had asked the client if we should move it indoors, once again, before set up of the area but, no, she's a "heat lizard" and thought it was actually "quite comfortable" in the shade. Mind you, in the shade it was still 93 degrees with no breeze. But the cake was a hit and by the end of the event it was totally gone! People went back for seconds! The really wonderful thing was that the guest of honor actually cried when she saw the cake. She was SO touched! No paycheck is worth more than that moment when you can see how much your hard work is appreciated!

 

Just a birthday cake for me this week..oh, and some brownies for our family dinner tonight!
