Just dropped off a wedding cake that makes me want to barf! I'm so disgusted with myself, this cake sucks!!!! The top tier is totally leaning/crooked/off center whatever you want to call it. I don't know what happened. I use bubble tea straws and have made several stacked cakes before and have NEVER had a problem like this. I just want to hang up my piping bag, eat a whole bag of M&M's and cry myself to sleep. icon_cry.gif[/img] And to top off the day...my cake on board magnet fell off of my car somewhere...somehow... on the way to or home from the venue not sure which. I really want this day to end. Thanks for listening to me bitch...my poor hubby's tired of hearing me whine icon_redface.gif

awww I AM SO SORRY HUN!!! ((((((( HUGS))))))))
sometimes, things dont go as we plan....today was just one of those days for ya...are you burnt out? have been way too busy? perhaps it is time for you to take a breather...
Go snuggle with your sweet hubby and put away that bag of M&Ms...it wont do you any good !!!
Again...think of positive things in life! Thank God for the blessings and steer away from frustrations.
I will say a quick prayer for your heart

If it is the BC basket weave with blue daisies it looks great to me! I don't see the problem.

O.K. I'm through with trying to upload the pic...it was the basketweave design with the blue gerber daisies. That pic is the good one...I didn't put the view from the side picture on here...that's where you can really tell it's leaning too far back. Thanks for the encouragement ladies...I feel better already icon_biggrin.gif

We have ALL had those days. Try not to stress too much, eat your M&M's if that helps (well, maybe not the WHOLE bag), watch some tv and just give yourself some down time.

Cake is an imperfect medium at best and some days the cake wins. Hopefully, you can take a break for a few days, my view is generally a bit brighter then. Sending you a hug, I have certainly been there! icon_smile.gif

I think that it looks great too AND someone made it their favorite. We can't be perfect all of the time. Sending a cyber hug!

Kellbella, I'm sending you another hug. {{{{ hug}}}} I think that you are your own worst critic. I think that that cake is beautiful! You definitely do not need to give up! icon_smile.gif

HUG<HUG<HUG!!! And you are being way too hard on yourself, the cake was great! And I sneaked a peek at the groom's cake which was a work of art! This day and your "breakdown" will be over and tomorrow you will creat another masterpiece! More Hugs!

The cake is beautiful! And the grooms cake too! You are obviously very talented, (I looked at your photos, that jungle cake, wow!) Anyway what I was trying to say is, give yourself a break you can't have perfection all the time! Go ahead & eat the M&M's, but as a reward.

BIG BIG HUGS TO YOU SWEETIE! I had an off day this weekend with a wedding cake myself, so don't feel bad! It just wasn't our weekend my cake sister! But........there's' always this week to make up for it! Take care!

That is me smacking some sense into you! icon_lol.gif

Ok, I'll give you the hug too, but try not to be so hard on yourself. The cake is VERY pretty, and sometimes a little lean happens. I am SO diggin' the golf ball you made. Totally sweet!

I adore basketweave even though some think it's a little old fashioned looking. When it's done well it looks amazing IMHO! And yours is very well done! I did a basketweave with Gerbera daisies about 2 years ago and it remains one of my bright and colorful favorites!

Well, that's it, hang up your spatula, you're done like dinner! Just kidding sweetie.

I think it's a lovely cake and can't see a darn thing wrong with it. Maybe it has a little lean to it, it's beautiful. We are our own worst critics you know. What you see as the leaning tower of pisa, most people wouldn't even notice. Don't be so hard on youself.

Edited to drop off that hug you asked for (((((HUG)))))

If I had made that cake it would have been in my "best of" files! You really are too hard on yourself and are very talented!
