Good save! It still turned out pretty in the end. How did that happen?
I bet that was horrible! However, the re-do looks great! I had a situation where a customer came to pick up a cake and it cracked for some reason. Luckily...I still had some yellow icing and was able to fix it for her!
Did the customer like the redo? Do you know what made the icing fall off? Anyway...for such a disaster...you turned it around really well!
Good save! I would have cried, I think.
OMG ..I would have fainted!! Do you know what caused that to happen? Was it in a hot room? Icing with butter? Please do tell! You made a great recovery!!!!
RR tracks can be a pain, that's why I always always slow down to 25 mph when I go over the really bumpy ones, don't need my car's suspension going out on me or have a cake go flying... and I pass over a set of really really bumpy ones every day I go to work.
Nice save, I think I like the bottom trim better afterwards!!! Pretty cake too by the way... when I saw the after picture I just cringed~ I'd have died, hopefully you can laugh about it now.
Wow, you did a great repair job. That had to be a major jolt to your system to open the box and see your cake looking like that! How fortunate it was only the sides that were damaged, you obviously kept your cool and did a great fix-up, it looks as good or better after the repair! Janice
A true testament to your talent! Also a lesson learned for the rest of us!
I am impressed! Way to keep your cool and end up with a beautiful finished product. I also like the bottom border on the redo!
Great Save-I'd probably still be crying! LOL!
Delivering cakes is the worst part!!! Good recovery though! The next car I buy is going to have the best shocks and supension i can find!!
Congratulations on a great re-do-I don't know if there is enough nitroglycerine that would have helped my heartattack! You should be really proud!!!I am sure the customer was very impressed with your ability to fix it so beautifully!
She was ok with the re-do. She did like the fudge drips but I think that's what made the top so heavy, combined with the 90 degree heat of the day in my trunk, plus the tracks that I obviously took too fast!! (unfamiliar tracks).
I thought I'd have a stroke right then and there but with God's mercy, I fixed it rather easily! I also added more powdered sugar to the leftover chocolate buttercream that I luckily had!
I also left it sit in a warm room so that when it went back out, it wouldn't sweat or anything. I will see her tomorrow to see if it made it to the event! Poor girl had to pick up the second one so I gave her the money back - but she split it with me instead. What a horrible day!
Alls well that ends well.
well, hold your head high-you did a fantastic job and were very gracious to give her money back because she picked up the redo-I have alot of people that come to pick up theres-seems to be easier for them so I don't complain. I do deliver some so it works both ways...
WOW!!! Excellent save!!! Looked great in the end.
