Happy birthday Melanie

If there was a cake that everything went wrong, this one was it. I was still able to pull off a half way decent cake but this was not was I was going for. Really wanted to make something extra special for my daughter’s 30th bday so I was a little upset. She seemed happy with it. Pistachio cake (per bday girl’s request), pistachio filling, citrus smbc & MMF. Gumpaste gladiolus since it is the August birth flower with calla lilies & filler flowers.

Don’t know what you your vision was Goreti, but this cake looks beautiful to me. Your flowers are just gorgeous!!!

Goreti ...

June, you cannot even imagine the mess underneath those stripes. I was in tears. Didn’t help that I woke up Monday morning (the day I was doing the decorating) was really bad migraine and did not have my prescription. So it all went downhill from there.

Wow, Goreti! This turned out awesome!! I can’t see any flaws in it unless you hid them behind in the back. I would have loved to have received a cake like this. It’s just gorgeous!

Goreti ...

Actually Linda the mess is underneath the stripes. I covered it (or tried to) in fondant and then I was going to do a few stripes & such. When I saw the way the fondant was ripped all over the place I knew I had to rethink the design (after a few tears & panicking-lol). It is SMBC underneath so it would have come off if I tried to remove the fondant so….. I smoothed it out as best I could and then just cut those stripes & decided to cover the entire cake that way. I’ve had issues with heat & humidity before but not as badly as this one. It just seemed to be melting.

The cake looks beautiful. And your colours are amazing. If that’s your cake on a bad day, wonder what the perfect ones look like :)
