OMG! I was finishing up the frosting on a half sheet graduation cake, when I tipped over the 2 qt. pitcher of water that I used to heat my spatula with, right on the entire cake!
Hmm....What to do? !
Then,to make it worse,my son who lives in Phoenix called me!Timing could
not have been better (or worse), than that, my sisters-in-cake!
I immediately yelped, and asked him to call me back later, that I had just drenched the cake!
Well, working quickly, I grabbed three paper towels and laid them carefully over the top and pressed just slightly. When I lifted it, the water was gone. I was most fortunate that I had already placed trim at the base of the cake.
I simply took the paper towel and very,very carefully edges that I made points of, into the remaining water pools around the trim and the board.
It worked out well, but what a scare!
Oh my =x
wow now ive heard it all!!!! oh my gosh sounds like you had quite a scare!!!! glad it worked out
I have never,ever had that happen! I just had to think fast and I grabbed the paper towels. I was so glad that I hadn't put the decorations on it at that time. I would have ended up having to scrape off the entire top and start over!
I have watched so many cake programs and seen experts mess up, that it has sort taught me that normally there is a rescue possible if I keep my wits about me!
At the time, I could have sworn that my wits had left the house!
