I hate it when a cake doesn't turn out how I planned. Seriously - it drives me crazy! It's like a huge failure and it urks me like mad!
Today I was supposed to deliver a basic fondant covered 9" round and 2 small cakes for twin girls who are celebrating their first birthday...For the main cake, she wanted brown fondant with pink and orange polka dots and a pink ribbon - done - too easy! WEll - not so easy - I decided to pick up a tub of Duff chocolate fondant...What a mistake!! It ripped and tore and didn't old together right and just made a huge mess! But I was so short on time, all I could do was go overboard on polka dots to cover up the mess! Ugh...And to make matters worse, it was greasy and sticky - so when I dusted it with icing sugar, it got stuck in the cracks and made a helluva mess. The Mom said she loved it but holy moley - I sure didn't. I mean - it wasn't "cake wreck" worthy...but it sure didn't meet my standards. Maybe I need to lower them? :S
