I feel so awful, this is my first post here but I know my cake centralites will understand.
a lady ordered a cake on Monday for delivery today. I like to use fondant icing but she wanted buttercream. I warned her that I'm not that great at buttercream. Anyway she wanted a racing car cake for her daughters go karting party but not in pink. She suggested purple, I wasn't keen but thought well that's what she wants.
I've made a racing car cake before but with fondant. Anyway to cut a long story short, the colour was awful and I couldn't get the buttercream to be smooth. It looked so amateur but I didn't have time to fix it as I need to finish another cake for tomo.
The nanny took delivery of the cake and the client sent payment via bank transfer as soon as she got home but I can't help thinking she must be disappointed. Especially since she has seen my previous standard many times.
I so wanted the cake to be perfect and I feel awful grrr I won't sleep tonight.
thanks for reading, natasha xx
