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.

Mine was a simple baby shower cake for my niece. 3rd cake I’d ever made. She hugged and cried when she saw it….best feeling ever!!

My best reaction was for this baby shower/ birthday cake. Her mum ordered it for a surprise and when they both picked it up, her daughter looked extremely happy and close to tears and wouldnt stop thanking me as she carried it away down my path. Couldve been the hormones! :-)

Funnily enough, it was very recently. Other than for my grandchildren, most of my cakes are made for adult recipients, who are generally very pleased. This particular cake was for a friends little boy. She brought him with her to collect it and the look on his face when he opened the box was absolutely priceless. He absolutely beamed from ear to ear, bless him.

What lovely stories and gorgeous cakes!! Thanks for sharing with us :) xx
