I love to decorate cakes, I'm no longer a legal cake decorator due to a recent move and 4 little ones that fill my day with joy. The newest being 3 weeks old. So to the problem - my daughter just turned 5 and due to the very small apartment and the new baby I ordered her cake from a local cake shop (we traded services). I was shocked when I picked up my daughters cake it looked horrible - well horrible might be to strong. It looked like someone who had finished the first course in wilton tried their hand at a 2-tier cake. The cake leaned , the icing was 1/4 inch thing to 1/2 inch thick depending on the area. The cake was had no dowels or supports and the designed was not followed at all. To make matter worse the cake decorator was late finishing it and I didn't mind that but I got a call that I could pick it up but she would not be there just someone washing dishes - no box. Should I confront her - not to tell her she needs to make a new cake or that shes horrible but to try and help her better her art. I really can't believe she owns her own shop.
