Grandma (an artist) calls me and requests a "really different" baby shower cake. We determine together that a 3-tier whimsy cake would fit the bill. Then she starts getting more than a bit too involved in determining colors, flavors, fillings, etc. I think I took about 6 calls from her in the space of a week, each time with more detail she "needed" to see . I'm amazed that the colors she wanted were okay ... the entire shower really was wowed by the cake. I guess you never can tell, can you?
