Had to do a cruise cake for a bridal shower. The bride was going on an Alaskan cruise for the honeymoon. No problems with the cake. I found several designs to copy on the web. Do an 11 x 15 sheet cake with a carved cruise ship on top. So what's the problem, you ask? Well, on Wednesday I pulled a back muscle & could not walk or stand up straight. The pain was awful. Order was for a carrot cake. I did a spice cake mix, doctored with 1lb. shredded carrots & a can of drained pineapple. A cake that would take about 2 - 3 hrs. to make took me 2 whole days from morning til night. Just getting up to assemble all the ingredients was bad. The good news is, I did get it done & it turned out really good. They all loved it when we delivered it! But I am still in so much pain.
