Wow, I am seriously touched that you guys thought it was great. I seriously thought I was going to get bawled out by the legalities involved in transporting an unlicensed wreck back to my licensed facility and such, haha. I just couldn't leave it there. All blessings and good feelings and such are heartily accepted! Hopefully we can get more business out of the deal, and be booked as often as we can handle ;-)

 

I must not have pushed the button down hard enough while it was stacked, because I don't have a picture of it, but imagine these cakes stacked, and leaning HARD to the right, like the Tower of Pisa.

 

 

 

 

After!

Thanks! I could've done better, but I was in such a hurry! I usually take about twice as long, or more to ice and pipe, but I didn't have the time. Guests were arriving when I was taking the pictures!

I applaud your actions.  An act of kindness, even with a nominal fee, is still a wonderful action.  Thank you.

Great job Anna!
That bride is so lucky that you showed up to help. What goes around comes around - and boy, do you have something good coming your way!

That cake turned out Beautiful. So nice of you to make the brides day and save the cake for the original baker.

Anna, I knew under all that crusty meanness there's a heart of gold. That was so nice of you. God bless you for being such a blessing. Please hand in your badge and e-gun. You're officially off the meanie task force. LOL.

Good for you! You must feel great. I have always dreamed about saving the day for someone. One day, I hope I get that same opportunity.

You are Wonder Woman!! So very sweet of you to jump in and help not just the bride and her family, but the original baker. It just shows your good heart, to not only agree to help, but to invite the woman back to your shop and show her how to ice and stack. I bet you'll get many, MANY referrals after this!! :)

I think your cake looks awesome, I bet the bride was thrilled!!

I'm just so proud that you used my term "monkey-iced" in your description of the original cake. Bwuahahahaha! I'd have charged more than $150 for all that effort, too, so you're nicer than I am.

I knew I liked you.

I'd have thrown caution to the wind & jumped right in. Seriously, who would sue after "fixing" that disaster?!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
