So this is a story of what happens when a cake has a very, very, bad day. I was finally finished with that huge cake for a first birthday. This was the smash cake that was to match. Mom had specifically ordered a giraffe for the top of both cakes as this was a safari friends birthday party. Isn't she cute. I loved this little giraffe so much, and I had fun making her. All was great until we were loading the car. Said cake was in a cake carrier when everything went amiss, just minutes before delivery!
What can I say I cried the whole way over on delivery thinking I have never had this happen before. Of course my wonderful husband was so supportive and reminded me how much worse this could be. It could have been the big cake in the gutter not the small one! The customer was not even worried and told me stuff happens. Ah, how wonderful to have such a great customer right!! Thank you so much for understanding that sometimes thing go wrong. So in the end I went home and tried to make a new smash cake to replace the one that got dropped.
