I made this cake tonight for my Uncle who passed away on Sunday. This was the hardest cake emtionally I could have ever made. He has such a special place in my heart and I miss him more than words can express.

Anyway I made this quick cake for him, I was so upset I forgot to level it and the frosting looks like crap but... I need a few more words for it, any suggestions my mind is blank at this point.

I can not get to attach so it is in my album.

So sorry for your loss. My mother-in-law passed away on 4/11/2010 and it is really hard, I understand. Maybe you could add more icing to the edges to offset the hump from not leveling. Or add some scroll work to cover it up. I'm sure it will be fine, and you should be applauded for putting in the effort at such a hard time!

I'm sorry for your loss. When my sister died my BIL put their wedding date along with rings and a love bird on her headstone, he also put their kids names, and noted that she was an Reg. Nurse. I added on the thank you cards that, "For a brief shining moment an angel passed our way." Not sure if that works for you, but maybe it will give you some ideas.
