I made a lovely unicorn cake for DH's co-worker, thank you CC'ers for inspiration. Very proud of my work, put it in a safe place for the night, went to bed. The next morning, DH is headed to our new bakery to do some work (remodeling) and I decide to show him my masterpiece only to find that the head has fallen completely off of the unicorn!!!!
This cake is supposed to be picked up in 4 hours!! I attempted to fix it, but no go, so I made different one, again with inspiration from CC'ers.
Here are the results:
Ahh... I can't imagine how much your heart sunk when you opened the box to show your hubby!! ...but your 2nd cake was a great rebound!! Both cakes were great!!
They are both incredible. I can't imagine how you must have felt when you opened that box! Thank goodness you opened it BEFORE the recipient was to get it...
You did a heckuva job on the newest cake too...wow, I couldn't have pulled that off in four hours. Way to go!
Both cakes were wonderful! Sorry the first one didn't work out
Your cakes are terrific! And you did the second one in less than four hours?! Wow! Did you use a specific pan for the second cake?
Ah man that must have been devastating but you recovered amazingly, the second cake is just as pretty.
Thanks for all the positive cake vibes! I used an 8 inch round pan for the second one. I carved off a little bit for the shape of the unicorn. I was able to torte and fill the second cake.
Thanks again. It was pretty devasting to see the head gone, but it was also so funny looking.
I'm so sorry that happened to you, but wow I'm impressed at your ability to come up with one as equally beautiful!! if that happenes to me I would probably just sit and cry
