Well ~ I don't know if any of you ever had one of those days where you did not want to hand over a cake but did anyway? :( I recently asked for a good chocolate cake recipe that I can make from scratch and I can honestly say that the "Hershey's" recipe was very good. Thank you to those who recommended it.
Anyway, I was asked to make a graduation cake and offered my opinion on decorating it. Well, they wanted things their way and, of course, of all days, it did not come out to my liking and they weren't happy. I was running out of icing so I had to make it from scratch and I decided to try something different and wasn't too happy. Too much air and it was more yellow than white and even tinting it did not help. Then I free handed the deco in royal icing and that didn't go too well either. I started yesterday morning at 9:00 a.m. and finished at 10:30 p.m. with other things going wrong as well. It was an embarrassment for me to hand it over and too late for me to start over. They have not tasted the cake but I was told that the mother's weren't happy.
I am planning on either handing over the check or returning 1/2 of the money. I will not even post the cake on here.
