ALL-IN-ONE DAY CAKE!
Last Sunday, my friend’s brother asked if I could make him an anniversary cake for his girlfriend Last Tuesday. I was not able to make the decor that Sunday night because I was so sleepy and tired already when I got home from the meet-up for the cake plan. (or maybe I just wanted to crash with all the food I ate from the late lunch - Bon Chon Chicken and Gelato from Cafe Ti Amo, by the way, BEST GELATO SO FAAAR and talk about crispy sweetness on a chicken!). I usually make cake decor day/s ahead from the day I bake and assemble the whole cake. Woke up 7 in the morning (Monday) and started at 9? Hahaha! made the flowers, chocolate box, the piggy and the girl first. Made more fondant, baked the chocolate cake and made the special icing filling, chocolate hazelnut. I was supposed to finish around 3pm but the cake was still too hot for it to be iced and decorated. So, I decided to.. SLEEP. I then finished decorating around 7pm. And then, the client called at around 9.30 and asked if he could just pick up the cake (instead of have it delivered it to their house on Tuesday morning) so he can surprise his girl at 12mn. I couldn’t say no, just the thought of it is sooo sweet! Unfortunately I was not able to print the “happy anniversary sign” because the fugly printer doesn’t recognize the new ink cartridge we bought. FRUSTRATING. At least the client said it was okay if I did not put it anymore. Then I felt bad because that was supposed to be the highlight of the cake, so I did the best I could do and wrote it in the nicest rushed handwriting. He then picked it up and was happy about the cake!
