  1. Awesome! Love this design! Painstaking cutout details for sure.

  2. For real! This was my first disaster cake of the year. I spent 4 hrs start to finish on this and of course it had a cream cheese filling so I had to put it in the fridge. It was hot and humid the next day and with no AC on taking the cake out to come to room temp was a complete disaster. The black in the cut outs started running down the cake, then as it come down in temp all the fondant started to gel together. It was horrifying with only 45 mins til pickup. I tried cleaning it up as good as I could but when I really started to look at it there was absolutely no way I was going to send that out with my name on it. I tried contacting the client but turned out I didn't even have her phone number. I took a chance and decided to strip the cake completely down to the actual cake and everything went in the trash. Client showed up and I explained to her what happened and told her I would personally deliver it. She was very understanding and thankfully the party wasn't for a few hours. Cake turned out great and only took me 1/2 the time to redo it.
