At least, I wish it would have in this instance. LOL
Just yesterday I got the pro pics from a wedding I did last May. This client was a doozy and after I set this puppy up I took some pictures on my own, checked in with everyone and then got the heck out of there.
Here's what the cake looked like when I left:
There is a very small bubble on the front of the cake, which I actually couldn't see in person. Didn't even notice it until I looked at the pics I took the next day.
And here's the pro pic:
HOLY ENOURMOUS BUBBLES, Bat Man!
No one said anything, so I guess they didn't notice or care? Gah!
Huh. Apparenlty CC isn't that fond of my flickr photos. Phooey.
Rhienn........All I see is red "x's", no pictures. Try uploading them again. I don't think it is my computer not
ooohh! I am so sorry. What a beautiful cake though!!!
Well, besides the bubble it was a gorgeous cake!
Your cake must have really warmed up from the time you took your pictures to the time they took theirs. Regardless of the bubbles, it is still a beautiful design.
Thanks for posting the links! I wonder what the deal with the embedding pics is? Dang it.
Yeah - it was quite a cake. Except for the enourmous bubbles.
The bubble wasn't there when you took the picture, and it is a gorgeous cake, bubble and all!
Tell people, if they ask, it was a freshness bubble.
Yikes! I see what you mean about the bubbles. They are much more noticeable in the pro pic! Must have grown after you left the venue. Getting air trapped between fondant and bc or bc and the cake can be tragic to the looks of a cake! Sorry this happened to your cake! Other than the bubbles it is very beautiful!
Wow, it's funny how it shows up so clearly in the pro pic. Very nice cake. Looks like a blowout ready to happen. Thankfully it didn't get worse. It must've been the special lighting the photographer used that amplified that bubble. I'm glad it didn't burst.
I didn't even notice the bubble until I started looking. This happens to me all of the time. I take a picture of the finished cake, and then look at the pictures and think, why didn't I fix that. Its like I don't see it in person.
A freshness bubble! LOVE IT!
I'll bet the bride didn't even notice it! And your pic would have clearly shown that bubble if it had been there when you set it up. Especially with the flash. Must have gotten warm in the venue after you left.
By the way, I looked at the long shot pic of the cake...OMG!! What an absolutely cool cake stand!! Love the effect of the "Tree" you did and I really think the Cuppie trend in weddings is a fab idea....minus the extra back breaking work it is! LOL
Nice job, don't feel too bad. It happens sometimes. We can't control the venue environments we deliver to you know.
Looking forward to seeing more work from you girl!
Honestly, it took me a second to even see the bubbles...and if a cake fanatic like me doesn't think it's that bad, then a cake muggle wouldn't have even noticed. Great cake!
SS about the bubbles. I couldn't even see them in the first pic. Now I know I NEVER want pro pics done of my cakes. My pics show enough flaws LOL.
Your cake is gorgeous though.
The reason it's more noticable in the pro pic is because of the angle the picture was taken at. It's pretty much a profile pic of the bubble.
That's why you can only slightly see it in yours (although it does look like it's grown some).
If it's easier to understand think of it as a picture of a person with a big nose, straight on you can't tell how big the nose is, have the person turn sideways, the picture becomes not so flattering, not to offend anyone who doesn't like their nose.
Myself for example are on the chunky side...haha I am the bubble, so I turn slightly sideways (like the first pic) in order not to look so bubbly
Hope that helps you understand the bubble a little more....blame it on the photographer...it is an amazing cake
As long as you are on the subject, can anyone tell me what causes these bubbles??? I am plagued with them on a regular basis and don't know what causes them. I make my cakes, freeze, fill and stack and cover in buttercream, put in fridge for a bit, then cover them in fondant....and the cake looks great....until I come down the next day to decorate and I have these bubbles/bulges that mar the cake and i have to redefine my design to cover up the bubbles, which I poke and flatten and it leaves a ghastly "scar" on the cake. What am I doing wrong? What do I do to prevent these bubbles - which from this thread, I see that I am not the only one to have problems with them.
the design is just beautiful, truly.
Lovely cake anyway
Thanks for the compliments. It was an INSANE set up and the client was an *ahem* challenge. I'm sure they didn't notice, because she certainly would have said something. She didn't pull any punches.
I was told that after covering the cake with fondant and before applying the borders to take a pen and "poke holes around the bottom edge. That would give the gas a place to escape.
