I think I booboo'd.

I wrote up the contract stating she'd get a 10in diameter half sphere to feed 30, a gumpaste astronaut and flag saying "happy 35th birthday kevin"

I had to make the astronaut of styrofoam and cover him with gumpaste because he was too heavy to stand up. Am I in violation of contract? I'm screwed if I have to make him over, he took forever and it's due Saturday. I've still got the cake to decorate.

Don't know why I didn't notice this sooner. Should I email the client?

If I were the client, this would be no biggie for me. Technically, there's still gumpaste involved. I'd mention the fact that the guy is non-edible when the client shows up to pick up the cake. Explain that, of course, it would've been too heavy to do it any other way than what you did.

Honestly, if the astronaut was made out of gumpaste alone he'd be just as inedible as he is made from styrofoam. Actually, I rather bite into styrofoam than solid gumpaste.

I wouldn't worry about it.
