I am sure this has happend to quite a few of you...or am i the only one?
...when nothing seems to go right!

well my cake is crumbling, sticking, breaking, its crooked my filling didn't set very well, and frosting it seems impossible!! ugh!! and to top it all off I turn my back for a nano second and my 2 year old decided to take a chunk out of it and smear it on the walls!!

i usually expect one or two snags when doing my cakes but is a whole different story!

I haven't finnished my disaster but i think a good second frosting, some fondant, and a nice break frome all that is cake should do the trick. The inside might look a little messy icon_sad.gif but it will taste good and hopefully look okay!

thanks for letting me vent icon_smile.gif

I know I have days like that at work. Definately walk away for a bit. Dont know where you are located but Im in louisiana and now that the weather has turned in the center of HELL. I have lots of troubles at home lately decorating. Hoping to get things under control soon, or I will have to find a walk in freezer soon.

Sorry to hear about your experience, but youre not alone today. I've had a bad cake decorating myself, and finally broke down and bought a new pan hoping it would help. I can't bake a cake semi evenly or non-burnt to save my life today. I tried to pipe figures for the first time and lets say I'll have to go with a new design to finish it tomorrow. Glad all days aren't like today, or I'd have to find a new hobby lol Hope your cake eventually turned out icon_smile.gif

Two weekends ago, I had a day like that. I took a day off work to work on two cakes. After 8 hours, I end up calling my boyfriend to come over to help because I was already in tears. We left the house to get more supplies and when we got back, he jump right in to help. I felt so much better. Getting aways from the cake helps.

One cake, that he helped on, looks good (Maker's Mark) and the other Clinique still ended up looking bad but I give my SIL a discount.


Who hasn't cried over cake at some point?

I know how you feel. It always seems like when one thing goes wrong then everything else after goes wrong as well.

My 2 yr old has done the same thing, I feel for you & hope your day gets better...Yesterday as I was finishing my nieces cake he started getting forks out & "setting" the table, he wanted cake so bad, so I presented him with his little 4in cake from leftover batter, and that kept him out of my nieces cake. My son always watches me make the cakes & says "pretty" mama, even if they look bad. icon_smile.gif
