Su has been inspired by these 3 beautiful colours all week!
Not exactly in terms of clothing or accessories; but more so with cakes and icing~
I had a couple of cakes to do this week..and decided it would be a good idea to stick with a single theme to make the brainstorming a little less stressful. Both cakes were needed almost 2 days apart from each other..and the orders for them did not come in till last week. I'm still pretty glad I got both cakes looking different; with a distinctive style each.
My housemate; Pinky thought this one was excellent~ She went on about how pretty it was, she said it looked like a Christmas ornament. *laughs* I guess the resemblance is pretty obvious.
The second cake was a mini topsy-turvy attempt... had a few petite flowers scattered around; made 3 tiers of different shades of pink.
The inside was done as a white chocolate mudcake done with pink swirls, and the bottom layer was sandwiched with pink buttercream.Unfortunately the cake didn't hit off well with the customer; they felt it was too sweet. I'm happy I got feedback; I usually have several recipes I swap around and I ask in advance what types of cakes they are used to (sponge, mud, alcoholic, dense, layered?). I didn't this time. I forgot. My bad... *sigh* This was a pretty big blow for me this evening; I felt pretty bad; like I've ripped someone off...it's my first negative feedback since I began selling cakes. I guess it was bound to happen... *laughs* well...*shrug* I'll learn not to be careless and rush things.
