I have all of my cakes iced and have the SPS plates in place. I need to finish the decorations and then stack - hope to be done by 1PM and will leave around 5PM to deliver 35 minutes away. My stomach has butterflies likes crazy and I just want to puke! I would go with it un-stacked, but that is not possible since I like to cakes ice cold before stacking and the design really leave no rooms for errors...
Honestly not sure that I want to do wedding cakes anymore, the stress, the time away from my kids, and the feeling of wanting to PUKE every minute since I started working on this....vomit! LOL
It is 3 tiers 14" square, 10" round, 6" square. Positive thinking that all goes well!!!!!!!!!
Your cakes are lovely. Keep positive thoughts flowing. Breathe deep and you will be fine! Once you set the cake on the table (at location) you will feel so proud, it will be worth it. Cake making is like having children, you forget all about the pain and then just go do it again!! LOL
Chin up! You will make it, the clients will love it, and tonight, you will experience that satisfied feeling of having made a wedding couple very happy with a beautiful cake!
Hang in there! It's all part of the adrenaline rush. You'll feel so relieved when it's out the door.
Never thought of it like childbirth but it's SO true. I always have the 'panic' moment during the process. If I only had a delivery nurse to hold my hand through the labor pains
If I only had a delivery nurse to hold my hand through the labor pains
Funny, I think that all of the time. Just to have an extra set of hands or a kind inspiring word....
One of my last cakes, I got just that. My sister in law was there (as she was riding to the event with me and she is not a caker). Just her positive comments and occassional hand lent put me at peace....not sure why but it was a God sent at the time...she was truely my delivery nurse!!
LOL...every single wedding cake I deliver is going to be "my last one, Honestly, NEVER again..." and those are the ones where absolutely everything goes smoothly!
The fact that you are using SPS will make your delivery so much less *eventful*!
Best of luck, and I BET, as you are pulling away from the venue, a little voice says, "How awesome did that cake look?" !!
Home! Cake made it to the venue! My only hiccup today was that I got 2 HUGE air pockets on my 14" bottom tier literally minutes before I began decorating in BLACK icing!!! I mean these suckers were BIG and the just grew, and grew, and grew! What in the world causes such a monster? lol
Now I am off to eat w/my DH. I have been running on my morning cup of coffee all day.....couldn't eat was too sick to my stomach!
So good to hear that your cake and you both made it through....and without puke no less!
Hope you enjoy your well deserved dinner!
I remember my first wedding cake (in May) and I felt the exact same way - I almost puked all over the cake - I was soo stressed out. What did you do about the bubble on the 14" cake? I'm curious.. was it covered in fondant? Did you refrigerate it at all? That's great that you're using the sps.. I'm probably going to do that the next time, less stressful! Your cakes are wonderful! I'm sure the bride will contact you to tell you how awesome it was and then you'll be able to breath again.
Well trying to poke a hole in it didn't work so I got the next thing closest to me...a butcher knife! LOL I sliced it open and then pushed it all back together......the one side was a clean fix....the other, well, it took a bit of elbow grease to make it look pretty again... did I mention that my fondant ribbon border was already in place? I wonder if that did something....I have NEVER had air pockets before....
