I love to make cakes. I love it. I love to bake. But what I am starting to hate and FEAR is delivering the cakes I make. I am branching out a little bit from just making cakes for the family and I am selling cakes to friends and friends of friends.

But when it comes time to deliver the cake, my heart is pounding all the way there, and I end up making nervous conversation and probably looking rather unprofessional. Afterwards, I feel a little sick and kind of sheepish. icon_redface.gif

If I ever get to own my own cakery, the first person I am hiring is a delivery driver!

I cannot believe that you posted this!!! Just this afternoon I had the thought that I have no trouble doing the cake, but getting it to where it needs to go??? Heart attack city!
If I could just wiggle my nose and have it appear at the event, I could die happy.

It seriously gets better!! Just feel confident in your stacking methods and your product! I have delivered 3 tier cakes fully stacked.
