There is no happy medium

I go to work and either I don't have enough things to do and the day drags on forever because I'm trying to fill it with mundane tasks. or I'm overloaded with work and there aren't enough hours in the day. Today was one of those days that I could have used a few extra hours. Aside from all the breads and rolls I had to bake today I had 2 cakes that were ordered for 1:00. There apparently was a huge cookie craving going on in our town last night too, because just about all the cookies were gone off the shelves. I baked a mere 26 dozen cookies this morning. I also had my weekly order to take care of and start working on my inventory. (we do inventory every other week)
I took pictures of the cakes I did. This one didn't turn out too bad.


This one though, didn't turn out quite how I pictured it in my mind. They said they wanted a tie dyed 60's theme cake. I can somehow see this one turning up on the cake wrecks blog...lol The woman who picked it up though thought it was really cool and she said that the girl would love it. Either I didn't do so bad after all or she was just being REALLY nice. This is what happens when people allow my imagination to run wild with their cakes. If they would just come in and tell me exactly what they want I don't get the opportunity to experiment.

Though not a fan of tie dye, I think the cake turned out pretty darn good. I'd certainly be happy with it especially knowing I'd be clueless how to do it!

They look yummy!! Really like the colors on the bottom one.
Baked a banana chocolate cake the other day, but it has just plain cream cheese icing.

The cake may not have turned out how you pictured it, but it still looks great. It's maybe not classic tie dyed but it's very close.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. I'm my own worst critic. I never seem to like the way my cakes turn out.
