Ella, I like your cake! It says 'celebrate!'
Chelle, Garfield is super cute.
Cat, hopefully your event is going well today.
So, I delivered the cake. Grrrr. I was concentrating so hard on how to get the cake to where it needed to be, I forgot to brace it in the box! The cake is on super thick cardboard so I could move it without damaging the cake itself, then wrap any dents with ribbon. It had to ride separate from the pedestal because it's so tall, and would be too top heavy. The topper got dowelled, no question. So, the issue was, I turned a corner (carefully) and the cake slid on it's bigger board, right into the side of the box. Black scrollwork got smeared into the box wall. It happened to be the front of the cake too.
I got to delivery spot (another person is taking the cake the rest of the way to the reception), and had to pry the topper off of the cake to turn it around and hide the damage.
Let me tell you, that topper was NOT going to move when I placed it. So that was a fun mess. Of course, this is that one time that I didn't have any extra icing to do repairs. I had my boyfriend run downtown with some nonskid material I *usually* use, now hopefully the cake makes it to the church on time... and in one piece.
