It really stinks when things like that happen. In my world I call it my "Can of Cream Corn!"

Do you have any family or friends you could use their oven? I wouldn't ask a customer to use their oven unless we were close.

Good luck!

I understand completely!

LOTS OF LUCK! You being a CC'er I know you can get it done!

My granny always said, "This too shall pass." She was always right!

I feel for you sweetie! My oven's electric controls popped and sparked and blew up the day before ThanksGiving! And I had to go pick up the new oven because they only do deliveries for the next day after the purchace was made and hello they are closed on TG!

I feel for you. My oven died a few weeks ago...I was sitting at the computer going through the galleries, and I put the oven on the clean cycle. No big deal....Ha! The glass in the oven door shattered halfway through the clean cycle. How's that for bizarre!? It would have cost me more to replace the glass and/or door than it would to buy a new stove.

Look on the bright side............You get to pick out a new oven! Now, that's exciting, there are so many great new features in ovens nowadays.

Good luck with your cakes. icon_smile.gif

yea thre are soo many ovens some a bit out of my range honestly i cant see spending what some people spend on ovens especially since im more hobby and friend/family sales yea it was hard finding one since i have such an old house and the specific style i need because i have a spice rack that is dear to me and i wouldnt dare take it down so i went threw alot of stores just to preserve my spice rack, but at least i found one and its being delivered saturday !!! yay!!!
