I would have donated them to the local homeless shelter or Headstart program by now! I assume after 2 days, the customer is a no-show, so on the third day I find a new home for the "orphaned" goodies.
Whatever happened to just cake and ice cream, pin the tail on the donkey and a pinata?[/quote]Good question! All though, there certainly seems to be no short supply of "donkeys"....and maybe some of those should be beaten with a stick instead of the pinatas.

Oh my! I think I'll print out this thread and present it to the people who have asked about the dummy cake idea! Those folks need to be "dummy-slapped" into reality! I, too, charge the same price for dummy cakes or dummy tiers, as I do for the actual cake. One lady, after ordering her daughters wedding cake with a dummy cake as the bottom tier, called back after a few days to tell me to go ahead and make it all cake seeing that it would be the same price.

I used Wilton royal blue to get a pale blue icing. To that I added the pink until I got the baby blue I wanted. I had to match the icing to a ribbon that was used on the cake.
