Hey guys;
Another one of my attempts to be a profesional cake decorator,lol.This cake was a last minute thing,I started it last night and this is the result of it this morning.Originaly lady told me she wanted Thomas cake,and I was getting prepared all week for Thomas cake(face and all the little details),than last evening she calls and she said the boy changed his mind and he wants a Lightning McQueen icon_eek.gificon_surprised.gificon_cry.gif .That was the biggest wake up call I got.I didn't even know where to start,but this is the outcome.Please tell me what do you think icon_smile.gif .

I think he's going to love it! You did a very good job. I don't know what I would have done in that situation....around here it would have been full panic mode! icon_biggrin.gificon_eek.gif

First of all, Excellent job!!
Second....She called the evening before to change a custom ordered cake???? I would flip out! I would kindly let her know that there is a window of opportunity to make any changes to any custom cakes!!
Excellent job on the spot!!! I hope she appreciates your hard work. thumbs_up.gif

I think you did a very good job on that cake! Especially so for such a late change! It looks amazing!

misterc Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:04pm

I think is is perfect! Did you carve the car or did you just happen to have a pan laying around that would work. I hope you charge her a fee for such a last minute change!

Sugar_Plum_Fairy Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:06pm

Ditto (I'm with newcakemaker).

practiceandpatience Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:07pm

Awesome cake, and especially impressive with the short notice change. Unbelievable how you created such a great cake in such a short time frame!

1st of all let me say wonderful job... 2nd of all I have vowed no more cars cakes... I don't know what but I HATE THEM.... I have only used the wilton pan and I hate decorating it for some reason... never resented a pan before but this one I do.

I love how you did the checkered flag sheet, I tried it too but mine didn't look near as good as yours... did you airbrush it? I have an airbrush got for V-day, never used it, I KNOW PEOPLE DON'T Cringe.. I am just afraid, plus I had my little boy on Feb 28, so time isn't as free... but I plan to use it today (oh and I said that yesterday too!)

You did a wonderful job, and even last minute I would have never known!

elvis Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:19pm

Awesome cake!! I would have had to say, sorry... he'll love the Thomas cake. But you did a great job!-- I hope she pays you extra for the minutes she took off of your life!! icon_smile.gif

notjustcake Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:23pm

I have to do one of these next weekend!!!!! I am so scared!!

carries_creations Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:23pm

cakes21 Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 3:26pm

What a great job. It turned out just perfect.

Lejla Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:30pm

Wow,thank you guys.I just delivered it a few hours ago.She seemed like she loved it.Althou she was sad that most of the kids that were invited canceled and she was going to have only like 4 kids there or something like that.I kind of felt bad for her and didn't charge her anything extra.But she did seem to love it.Thank you guys for your replies,I knew I could depend on you.

step0nmi Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:33pm

I think you need a BIG tip!!! That's what I think! To be changing a cake at the last minuet is crazy! icon_eek.gif
You must do GREAT under pressure cause I would've said "no".
This is an awesome cake! He will LOVE it! icon_biggrin.gif

tyty Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:37pm

Wow, you did a wonderful job, I'm sure he will love it. I guess you just have a gift. Thanks for sharing.

angelcakesmom Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:41pm

You did an AWESOME job!

JulieB Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 6:50pm

The cake is great, and to do that at the last minute. I'm sure had it been me, I would have had to waste blue icing, I don't know how I would handle a last-minute change. You did great!

southrnhearts Posted 1 Apr 2007 , 8:38pm

and secondly, you were polite and let her make the change
