I decided to do a cake for my friends at work. I have made several and each have turned out beautifully. This time, I decided to experiment on different leaf types. I guess that I didn't know when to stop and now the cake looks like crap! My husband is my biggest cheerleader and when I showed it to him, he hesitated for a few seconds and said "It looks alright". I know that he was trying not to hurt my feelings. I am taking it in to work anyway and hopefully will taste better than it looks. Thanks for letting me vent!
I'm sure it will be a hit. Everyone loves homemade cakes.
I'm guilty of going overboard sometimes too. Trying to learn 'less' is 'more' and it's so hard sometimes.
Keep at it!!!
Thank you for giving me support!! It is really hard to get into my thick head that less is more!! I feel better now.
Totally agree with poshcakedesigns!!
Everyone loves sweets period and homemade is just the whole lot sweeter! (pun not intended
ANyway, take it as a lesson. Better you learn with your friends than with a paying a customer!
I agree with ccr03, better with friends than customers. I struggle with "less is more" too. *sigh* Maybe I'll get it one day!
You guys are the greatest!! I feel MUCH MUCH better now! You are right, they loved it! I'm glad that it was for my friends and not one of my paying customers...that would have been a freebie!!
