Hi Raewyn.
The best reaction I ever go was tears too, happy tears. Though my work wasn’t outstanding and gravity defying, like yours, mine was a simple garden toadstool cake for a little lady’s 3rd birthday. The specs given by the mother was just something to do with flowers or plants because the beautiful little girl loves gardening.
When mummy saw the toadstool cake she hugged me so tight and had tears of hapiness in her eyes. That was the best experience and reaction I have recieved in the 2yrs I have been caking.
