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.
