During the meeting tomorrow be honest about why you are quitting. Don't bash anyone, be professional, but don't minimize the situation either. The next person that is hired in will have the same problems you expererinced.

Do you have to cover the cake in fondant? Can you ice the cake in buttercream instead?
That is what my first post was mainly about...pesticides.

I don't think the white chocolate adds a vanilla taste at all.
I would suggest baking now what you can fit in the freezer to get some of the baking out of the way. If you don't have room in your freezer I would wait to bake the cakes until Wednesday. I stack what I can lift at home and assembly the rest on site. I put 2 dowels offset from the center through the entire cake. No matter what, it never moves. Some people swear by SPS (single plate separator - can be purchased from global sugar art). I have used it, it is okay, but I...
