I'm inclined to believe the "D" in "DH" stands for "Dashing, Debonair, Darling and Delectable". The "H" would stand for "Hunka Hunka burnin' love"
Nice cake by the way Mz. Moviechick!

Can't always be too quick to turn down a last minute cake. I had someone call me on a thursday for a cake on saturday. Turns out she had already called another decorator in town who declined the order because she needs at least a week's advance notice. So she calls me, I say ok. Customer picks up the cake, takes one look at it and says I need a cake for next weekend. Yay! She picks up the next cake and says I need a cake for 60 people week after next. Yay! So, by accepting a last minute order, I have a new regular customer who has lots of friends that she is recommending me to. You never know icon_biggrin.gif

Last minute - 10am dropping off DH at work and his coworker runs out to me asking if I can make a cake of a 'woman's chest'! Ok, not a problem...I need it for tomorrow, sure! She had previously ordered a bachelorette cake and cancelled after a certain male piece was hand made out of fondant (trashed that part after 3 weeks and no requests for ANYTHING similar and then accidentally crushing it, ouch!) I told her I would call DH with price and confirmation that it could be done. Off to the cake supply store! I bought an airbrush and a box of colors (yeah! New toy!!) Also got a mini-ball pan for shaping. I called DH back around 11am with price and asked that he make sure the price is ok, finally get confirmation around 12:30pm and they are going to pick up the cake THAT NIGHT instead of tomorrow - ugh!! OH - and now I realize I have no boards or boxes!! Quick create a board from cardboard, box will have to wait...I get the cake done and get a call from her around 7pm to drop the cake off with DH in the morning. Meanwhile, I have a wedding consult (first one!! icon_smile.gif) sitting in the middle of my chaos!! Fortunately she also works with DH. Running out to the store 10 minutes to closing for the box, but it got done!!! I think the cake turned out ok, but, I never like any of the cakes I do - hardest critic!!
