Well, it's another cake story for me. However, this time the cake turned out well. I'm so pleased and thankful you have no idea. This cake is a full sheet cake which means it's a 12 x 18. Pretty big yes I know, but it's worth the effort considering the price and all. Anyway, I don't have it completely decorated yet, but as soon as I finish I'll be sure to post the picture. This cake is a birthday cake for someone that I've never met, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. You know some of the best business one can get comes from strangers or people you don't know very well. Anyway I baked this cake early enough so that I could avoid as many disasters as possible. Those of you who have read my previous posts know that I have had some close calls in the past. But this cake went off without any major hitches. The one hitch I should say is that just as I was about to bake this cake I realized that I did not have enough sugar. However, it was a bright sunny Saturday without a cloud in the sky (at that point anyway) and I headed back to the IGA for some sugar. For a full sheet cake you have to make two cakes essentially which means six cups of sugar, a dozen eggs, a pound of butter, two pounds of flour, and well you know the rest of the ingredients. Anyway, the cake was set to turn out great once I had enough sugar. I'm just pleased that this one was a winner..........(a few days later.) The cake was delivered today and Jackie (the lady I sold it to and her husband) were pleasantly pleased with the cake. I think though, that her grandson was more pleased when he saw the decorations. Anyway, judge for yourselves and if you're ever interested just let me know. Have a good one!!
