Oh deer

I got to work yesterday morning and one of the first things I see is the new order that is hanging up. It's for a cake which isn't really a problem considering it's only a 1/4 sheet cake. Then I read what they want on it. Green and yellow and they want me to put a John Deere lawn mower on it. Really? Why do people ask for things like this? I'm a traditional flowers on the cake kind of decorator. I tried to call the customer to let her know that if I attempt this it's going to look like a kids drawing. Of course I get the answering machine. I waited for her to call back and she never did. So now the problem is do I a) make it without the mower or b) bite the bullet and try it and see how it comes out. I went for option b.


That seat is a little high for where the steering wheel is and I don't know if anyone would say "hey that's a lawnmower" but there it is.

I also love it and I bet the customer did too. You got out of your comfort zone and filled the order. Good for you.

I think it's grand! Did you choose the colors, which are excellent by the way, or did the customer request them? You so cool!

you gave them what they asked for... I think it is adorable... you would not want to see my rendition of a tracker lawn mower even on paper... if they want that they should come in with a toy tractor and say decorate around this please.

Well, I knew it was a lawn mower and I bet she was happy with it. It was definitely a John Deere, so bet she was really happy with it.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of lovies to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Thank you

She chose the colors but since she wanted a John Deere theme on the cake those would have been the colors I would have chosen if she had left it up to me.

Ann said...

If you compare it to the one sitting out in my back yard the only resemblance is the color...lol

I think you did a great job. It's a compliment that they assumed you could do it, and I'm guessing they will be (were?) pleased.

Ann said...

The husband was the one who picked it up and he seemed happy with it.
