...when its been a while since your last cake disaster so you feel like your due for one at any moment? Thats how I feel right now. Im doing two cakes and have a constant nervousness in my stomache! Uggh! Corssing my fingers.
each time I start a new cake, I am nervous..... I can relate.
Nothing a nice glass of Cabernet won't cure....
Its strange how that happens, I had that with my last cake, and it seemed like more things went wrong than usual. In the end its my favorite cake, but I definitely had bad feelings about it.
wine, yes..... sounds like a great remedy to the jitters!!
Ha ha- I do champagne cake sometimes, so I tend to make mimosas....
I have those "on" weeks where everything seems to go right, and then if I have too many "on" weeks I get nervous waiting for my "off" weeks to come. They always do- everything seems to go slower and take longer, and nothing turns out like it should... hang in there!
I had 3 wedding cakes this weekend (I was in the van for more than 3 hours doing deliveries!). During the decorating, I kept dropping things ... tips, towels, mixing spoons, one bowl of icing (yeah, THAT pissed me off!). So I kept thinking, "omg, something terrible is going to happen with these deliveries!"
Well, I deliver the 1st two in the same trip (locations were close). I put my cakes on 18x26 baking sheets with no-skids under the cakes to make it easier to carry. As I move one baking sheet in the van so I can pull cake #1 out, I shove the pointy corner into the smack dab middle of one of the layers of cake #2! Crap! It's fixable. Looks like crap to me, but hopefully no one else will think so.
3rd cake is doing fine. I'm placing the top tier (4 tier cake) in place. I've done this a million times. Then it happens: I drop one side of the cake, which damages the lower tier. Crap! (Although I am thanking God it didn't go tumbling across the table!) Fortunately, they had rose petals for the cake which covered up that bad spot JUST fine!
I think I've learned to listen to my little voices!
I HATE that feeling! I get that almost everytime! ha thaught i was the only one!
