With the food network shows about cakes people are more interested in cakes. Especially Duffs cakes. I have been asked several times to make a cake that Duff has made. I am not Duff nor do I have a beard. I am Paula and I make 99% of my cakes out of cake and butter cream icing.
I dont know if I should be honored that someone asked me to make a cake like his or embarrassed to say I am not that good..............
Does anyone else here get asked to do cakes like his?
I have been asked to make a couple of cakes that were seen on Ace of Cakes but they were friends who were asking so I told them that I couldn't promise they'd be ask good as what they saw, but I'd give it my best shot - also they wouldn't be paying for a Duff cake.... so that reduces the pressure of having to be perfect. I told them I'd make my version of what they are requesting.
I'd be flattered if I were you! Obviously they think you're that good and from what I see... You Are!
I so understand Paula ... The other decorater here in town died last year.. I always get... "Mrs. so and so used to do my cakes" .. makes me feel well... second .. BUT .. at the same time they say that my chocolate cake tastes way better then hers did... Still.. doesn't make me feel good
