I was in public when I read it and had everyone looking at me like I was crazy I just could not stop laughing. Once I settled down I was a little outraged that someone would try to use money that was probably provided to feed their kids to throw a fancy birthday party for themselves.

lmao I know this is late but I cant stop laughing! Could it had been my neighbor?

Every now and then I arrive at my current job, working with very sweet people, with a cake. They love to test my cakes.

I never took a cake to my previous (horrid) place of employ.

 

Next weekend I think I will make an orange cake with whipped orange and chocolate cream filling and frosting. Chocolate + orange = YUMMMMMMMM.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I wish I would've saved the actual messages that would've really given you a good laugh.  The grammar was so horrible I had to enlist other people to help me decipher what the hell she was asking for. And no English was not her second language.

I've been enjoying this thread from its inception. Up to now I haven't had anything much to post...except now that I think of it-- I was making a cake for my sister's grand daughter's 6th birthday. We've always had a very good relationship, cake-wise and all other wise. I make our family cakes and she buys me new cake toys I cannot afford which I can use for other cakes. Win win, right? Well, her grand daughter asked for a very special cake and I agreed to make it to her specifications. We decided to make a cake like one of her paintings which always have a signature rainbow, with the usual children's sun in the corner,etc. I eagerly e-mailed my sister pictures of the cake in progress, the flowers that I replicated exactly as her grand daughter had drawn. I was floored by her response, "Aren't you going to put more flowers on it?" (Read that as, "aren't you going to put your realistic gumpaste flowers on it")  I told her no, I was doing what I was requested to do by a 6 year old little girl who loves to paint. The real kicker came when she told me that she was going to go out and buy some fake flowers and add to my cake ! I told her that that would be the last cake she ever got if she dared to mess around with my design.

Well, all turned out well and she said that it was the favorite cake I ever made for her. We simply hadn't been on the same page and she didn't see my vision. She thought she'd be getting a veritable flower garden, knowing how I love to make gumpaste flowers. The birthday girl was delighted to see her painting come to life in a cake.

This is a long story since I can't seem to edit myself, but I'll post a picture so you can see what I was talking (at length) about:

 

 

For her 6th birthday, Madeleine wanted a rabbit with a carrot in a flower garden. I asked her to paint me a picture of what she had in mind so I could replicate it in cake. Every picture she draws contains a rainbow, so using flowed sugar for the figures, and pastillage for the rainbow & sun, here is what I came up with. It took more effort to make the wobbly rainbow and crossed lines pencil effect in the rabbit than I thought it would. The cake is strawberry with dark chocolate ganache filling, covered with white chocolate cheesecake MFF.

 

I hope this sweet little girl is always able to find the rainbow after every storm.

 

Actually, it's somewhat difficult to make a non-perfect rainbow. But you can see why she was disappointed when she first saw a pic of the flowers...

 

Moral of the story: Do Not Tell A Cake Artist That You Are Going To Modify/Change A Design Yourself!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
