Hi Everyone,

I am so mad at myself I could scream icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif ,I had a larger cake go out today and had it all nice and awesome and the lady arrived to pick it up and .....I had the number 13 on top in big fondant letters instead of 10 icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gif I had it written down in 2 order book and my order calender and sure enough had 13 written down..The email shows 10... icon_cry.gif I almost I quickly thought..."What do I do?" I pulled out the fondant and rolled out a number zero and set it on wax paper under a 6 inch circle and sent it home with her to replace the 3 when the zero dried tomorrow...I am so mad at myself.... thumbsdown.gif I'm just hoping it will be dry enough so it can stand up on the top with the loops etc...She wasn't mad cause I offered to send home a replacement but she will sure be pissed if it isn't dry tomorrow... icon_redface.gif

I can't believe I did this.... icon_rolleyes.gif I'm a Virgo..we are Perfectionists... icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

Some days I just wanna crawl in a hole....LOL

We've all been there. I'm sorry for you though!

But hey, look on the bright side....and you may ask "is there a bright side?" could have covered the entire cake with "13" at least it was only 1 big one! icon_wink.gif

Surely to goodness it will be dry enough by tomorrow. I hate that for you though. I did that once in bc on a bc cake. It was hard to fix, but thankfully the mom told me when she picked it up and is a real sweetheart. Don't loose too much sleep. I've used fondant letters on sticks that hadn't dried for any longer than that.

I was a Coke collector. I came across a "special edition" coke bottle with the year 2001 on it. I bought it for my son because he graduated in 2001. He took it and said, "That's nice, mom, but I graduated in 2002!"

icon_redface.gif I don't even know the year my son graduated! icon_redface.gif

At least yours was for a stranger AND it was fixable!

Anyone wanna buy a coke bottle with 2001 on it? icon_lol.gif
