My best friend needed a birthday cake. Her mom is very neat and she wanted to have a perfect looking cake. My friend didn't like the taste of her "perfect cakes" and begged her mom to let me make it for her. I was soo excited, but also very nervous because her mother is kind of scary.
I made a cherry cake with a filling of chopped up cherries and chocolate. I decorated it and I got it ready to go. No problems. The cake was pretty and it didn't have anything wrong with it. BUT as I am walking out the door to go, The bottom of the cake board just completely rips and half and the whole cake just falls.....OMG.
The cake board was a little old but it was perfectly fine when I started. I had both my hands holding it and I know it wasn't the weight of the cake because it was a very small cake.
Well, now I'm left with a pile of mush and an angry mom. I ran out and got a generic pre-made cake. Now I look like a (mod edited) 13 year old who is completely failing at her dream..
But whatever. Mistakes happen I guess. I'm gonna run a batch of cherry cupcakes over and hope the mother is to angry.
