Ok, guys.....I feel like such an idiot. I have had a busy weekend 5 cakes in total, 3 are weddings and the rest b-days. I dropped off two of the wedding cakes today and then I had planned to go home and get a nap, then do another wedding cake for tomorrow morning thats due at 11 a.m. So, I wake up 6 hours later at 11 pm!!!!! I havent gotten anything started for the cake. I mean its baked, but thats it! At least I got alot of sleep so I don't feel tired right now!!! Its a pretty simple cake so I shouldn't be at it for much longer. Just thought I would share my oops moment!!!

Whew! I thought I was going to read that you really gave this excuse to someone. I was getting ready to pop some popcorn and hit refresh! icon_biggrin.gif

I'd be panicking by now, I hope everything goes well and you finish it on time

I'm sure you do a great job on all cake and more power to you. But in my opinion this is one of the reasons why I would never go into business making cakes. It is a lot of work. No matter how tired you are, you are obligated to make them. Your cakes are fabulous icon_smile.gif

I just got done making the cake. I have like so much energy from my power nap...LOL I think I'll do this more often. Sleep during the day for a few hours and then get everything done at night! It seems like everything went so much smoother.

I do a lot of mine at night no distractions. I'm a true believer of the power nap (45 min) sure will refresh the mind. Seams like more than 45 min leaves you groggy and needing more.

power nap, that was a full nights sleep. I'm glad everything went smoothly.

LMAO, same here.

I hate when a little snooze turns into a long sleepfest. I accidentally took a LONG nap yesterday - 5:30 to 11:30 pm - and the long ones always make me feel all out of sorts and cotton-headed. Yuck

Hope you are still up and at 'em! icon_smile.gif

Gorgeous cake!
Once I fell asleep with a cheesecake in the oven. The alarm--SMOKE alarm, not alarm clock--woke me up. Burnt cheesecake anyone? Thank God the alarm went off!

Lesson: Make sure to put new batteries in your smoke alarms every six months, when you change the clocks for daylight savings time! That's coming up pretty soon.

There is a cool way you can make that so it is washable and re-usable. Make a foot long length of fabric that is 2-3 times longer then the circumference of your base.

Sew the ends together and then sew thick seams along the length leaving a small opening.

Take elastic and thread through the seam and make sure when you stretch it out it can fit around your base and tie in a double knot and let it all disappear into the seam.

Do the same for the other seam. It should look like a giant over grown scrunchy.

Now it is completely adjustable and you can wash it and re-use it and put it on a few sizes of bases.

Just stretch it over the edge and adjust the fabric folds and Viola!

To make that base, i buy the 15 inch wooden round from lowes, then I get batting and fabric and cut it into a biq square. I set the board over it and then bring the fabric and batting and staple it four times to the board. One on each side(even tought it is a circle and its doesnt have any sides, I just do it in the centers) then i pleat the fabric and staple one at a time, until it is completely pleated all the way around the board.I hope I havent confused you. I think I have confused myself. LOL
