Here I sit... it's 12:30 I have to be up for work at 6:00 am, my hubby's birthday today, and I have just given up on the second cake I have tried to make for him. I have been working on it for hours. I tried to make a cake humidor, and it collapsed when I tried to put the lid on the back of it.
It seems every time I try to make a cake for my family I just make a mess of it. Maybe I care too much. WAAAA
I have been there and I feel your pain. I think we do stress more over familys cakes, it's coming from the heart.
Get some sleep and give your hubby extra kisses for his birthday and he won't even notice the cake!
