I just had to share that I am in cake decorating heaven today. icon_smile.gif Last night I was finishing up a Dora cake for a friend's niece and it was one of those nights when the cake Gods were smiling down on me. The fondant was smooth and easy to work with, without a single crack or crease. The buttercream underneath it went on smoothly without a crumble to be seen. The fondant pieces I worked on a couple nights before to save me some time when I was pulling the final cake together went on without a hitch and were the perfect size.

Isn't it just a wonderful feeling when everything goes according to plan - perhaps even better than planned? And then the delivery was met with a huge hug from the birthday girl's mother. I can't wait to hear what the birthday girl thinks!

I'm basking in the glow of a cake well done today and would love to hear similar stories of your cake successes! I should add that I've only been making cakes for a few months so to feel this euphoria is still a bit new - and I was up way past my bedtime putting on the finishing touches so I may just be a bit punch drunk. icon_biggrin.gif

I am so happy for you! It is a great feeling the the cake gods smile on you.
I did my first wedding cake last week. The cake was perfectly imperfect, but there were so many "firsts" that I was still really proud of it. I suppose it wasn't the wisest thing to do my first wedding cake with a bunch of other things I hadn't done before, but how else is a girl to learn? icon_biggrin.gif
After I finished covering the cakes with fondant my husband says "You must be getting better at fondant because I only heard you swear once." icon_rolleyes.gif That sounds really bad doesn't it?

LOL. That is hilarious.

I have a habit of trying new things at inopportune times myself. But I agree that you have to learn somehow! icon_biggrin.gif

I have felt that "cake euphoria" exactly twice - actually three times, but one time I woke up in the morning and my racoon's nose had fallen off, so euphoria turned into panic! I'm almost always disappointed with my cakes, so when one goes perfectly, it's an incredible high! Your Dora cake is adorable. You did a great job and should be proud!

Usually my cake s don't turn out like I want but the recent pumpkin I did actually cake out exactly like I wanted it and the fondant went on perfectly. It was awesome! I was also pretty pleased with the BD cake for a 17 year old that it in my photos with'Basia' on it. Isn't it an awesome feeling when they turn out?!

tracycakes - Your pumpkin cake did turn out quite amazing. You do excellent work!

jillycakes - Thanks! I know the feeling of usually not being quite satisfied with a cake. That just makes the euphoria that much better.

mightydragon663 - Yes, sometimes gosh darnit just doesn't cut it. I've definitely used some choice words while working with cake. Although fondant isn't usually the cause. It's usually when I have to carve a cake that my language becomes colorful.
