OK, so today I am working on my cousins wedding cake. The wedding is tonight. It is 9:30am and already almost 90 degrees outside. All was well until the icing started cracking this morning on the two largest cakes. Grrrrr. My BF was supposed to be here about an hour ago to run interference for me with my toddler but is not here and the toddle stuck his finger in 14 in. cake!!!! icon_mad.gif I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in April and sometimes the pain in my hands is awful, today included. I need to pipe hearts on the sides of the cake, not going well. And to top it all off, my sister was going to borrow her mother in laws kia sorrento this afternoon so we could deliver this monster, and her mother in law decided to take off to her daughters for the week, even after we asked her!!

Needless to say today is one of those days where I keep asking myself why I do this and tell myself it may be best if I quit for now. icon_cry.gif

Thanks for listening and letting me vent. Needed to get it out so I don't scream at those who are trying to help me. Hope everyone has a good Friday!!! icon_sad.gif

awe I am sorry to hear about your day. Take a moment, read your little one a story, then plop the little one down with the favorite movie of the week. Call your BF and tell him to get his cute lil behind here in your most seductive voice (that'll get him runnin) icon_wink.gif and make a list of everyone you know that has a vehicle big enough to transport this cake. Maybe call the maid of honor and see if there is a guest at the wedding who would voulenteer their car?
I hope things go better for you, don't give up you can totally do this. icon_smile.gif
I really hope this helps

I am sorry your day isn't going well. Take a deep breath and leave the cake for a few minutes. Sometimes it helps me to leave it for 10-15 minutes and then I can return and keep going. Good luck with your cake and I hope your day gets better.

Somehow, it all goes wrong at once. Stuff like that always happens to me-either everything is smooth, or everything is chaos and my daughter covers herself in food coloring (she just did that for the second time. Super Red and Royal Blue. To match the cake I made for her).
Take a deep breath, see if you can go to the park or something until your friend shows up.
Hope it will all turn out.

I think we have all had those days. You just have to step away for a few minutes and relax. I am sorry the day has gone so bad for you but I am sure by tonight when everyone sees your cake they will be in awe and it will all be worth it! thumbs_up.gif

Good luck! taking a break should help give you a chance to regain your nerves. I know what it's like to try to get something like this accomplished with a little one. It's nearly impossible and so much more stressful! Can't wait to see the finished photos. I know they'll be great.

Inhale through your mouth and exhale through your nose. Okay, now, TRUST IN THE LORD. He will see you through this.

This is how I get through my cake decorating days. If nothing else, put towels on the back seat to keep the cakes even and drive slowly when it's time to transport the cakes. And take all your tools with you.
