Hi everyone... it's been awhile since I've been on this forum. I've had troubles logging in, it wouldn't let me for the past couple MONTHS! I thought cakecentral banned me or something!!! Anyways, I re-registered under another name so I can finally get in here again! If you don't remember me, I was going to make my own wedding cake (I had done a practice cake and so on)... well, of course, it didn't work out. 2 days before my wedding I ended up finding a lady that could make a cake for me. I had all of my cakes out of the freezer (all baked already) and they were on my kitchen table wrapped up while I was at work. Well, our central air went out and when I got home and unwrapped the cakes, they were FALLING apart from the terrible humidity (this was near the end of July). We tried to BC a few (I made over 15 lbs. of BC for this) and it wouldn't work. It didn't really matter at that point because the MMF wasn't turning out either... I had made over 10 test batches of the stuff back in April and it worked great but since the humidity was so terrible, I just couldn't get it to turn out right. This was a bride's worst nightmare but thankfully I found one awesome lady who could save the day. I ended up bringing cakes to work the next day and everyone thought my story was hilarious (but sad too). At first I was pretty mad about it (just ask my husband and mom) but I got over it and it ended up being quite funny at the wedding. If you want to see my practice cake, it's in the gallery and so is the one I did for my shower (under greencargirl). Here's a pic of my wedding cake:
Glad to see you again... but I miss the little green car. Sorry you 're cake didn't work out, ut I'm glad that someone was able to save the day. I wouldn't have tried to make my own cake for anything! Congrats on the wedding!

Congratulations on your getting married...
Welcome back and congratulations on your wedding day. Your wedding cake is beautiful inspite of the troubles you had to go through with your cakes prior to the wedding day. God just made another way for you by sending someone to make the cake for you. It is always nice to know someone that can do a nice job with cakes, we just never know when we might be faced with a problem. In fact, I have a lady in mind for myself for the just in case of any major problems. It is always good to have a back-up system. Happy to see you back.
your cake is beautiful! She did an excellent job! I would be seriously nerve-wracked if I knew I was decorating a cake decorators wedding cake!
Congratulations on your wedding. Just think now you have a great story to tell about your wedding cake.
