I've made 2 cakes and not satisfied with either. The first cake was baked on a very rainy day and I'm really not sure why, but it didn't rise or should I say fell when it came out of the oven. The second cake feels like it's not dense enough to stack/carve.
I've made all of the decor for the cake and while time consuming, I'm satisfied. Tomorrow is icing day and Friday is fondant. Saturday evening delivery. I colored my fondants last night and had to use a ton of gel color to get the dark color the customer wanted. It wasn't a color that I could buy premade. I checked it tonight and my fondant feels soft.
I'm about to pull my hair out. Is this normal?
