Let them eat cake

Today I thought I would give you a closer look at the cake I made at work that was almost a few sizes too small.

Just to clarify, we don't actually bake the cakes there. We have them shipped in frozen and I only decorate them.

The order call for red flowers, a teddy bear and it was supposed to say "Bear one anothers burdens Congratulations Albion Chapter #22.
I was wondering how I was going to fit all of that on the 1/4 sheet cake that the order said. A 1/4 sheet cake is a 13 x 9 size cake.

I was thankful that this really was a bigger cake since that gave me plenty of room to fit everything on.


A closer look at the teddy bear. I've always been very critical of how my cakes look. I'm never satisfied. Years ago when I made a comment about one of my cakes not looking so good to my boss he told me that even though I didn't like it the person ordering it would be happy with it because it was most likely way more than they could do themselves.

I kind of winged it on the bear. I drew one on a piece of paper first and then did an outline on the cake with the brown frosting then just filled it in

  2. You-all don't actually bake the cakes? Are they made in China or worse--Canada? For shame! For shame!! For shame!!!

  12. You did a great job on all of the cake! When I worked in a bakery, I dreaded being asked to write a name on a cake since I just can't write with frosting. I could make roses though! I took a cake decorating class a couple of years ago and now I can do lots of things but I never make cakes since I really don't need to eat them. :(

  14. Yes, I love this. And I got some decorating tips too! The cake is awesome! And I think decorating is much harder than baking. I am glad to finally get a better look at it. Your writing is wonderful, too. I know it is very hard to write anything at all with icing. I will be looking forward to more!!
