Cake Consultations

Getting ready for a cake consultation: my trusty notebook, color/fondant swatches and cake.

So, I'm getting ready for my cake consultation right now. It's cold and nasty and rainy outside and my car's stuck in the mud! Yippee! Great way to start a day! Thankfully I have great parents that are helping me out and lending me their car today.

So, anyways, like I said, I'm getting ready for my cake consult. I've done this before on my own but I still get a little anxious. But I feel good about this one. This could be a fun cake to do if I get the job (I'll post if and when I get the job). They're looking to have a sea theme and they are the reason I was constructing a tugboat out of cardboard. So, I've got my folder of ideas, my notebook, my color swatches, and of course, the cakes. I'M READY! Thank GOD I love doing what I do cause staying up til 2:30 am when you have to get up at 7:30 am wouldn't hack it for anything else.

And to help put a smile on my face today I'm going to quote the great British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard:

"TEA AND CAKE OR DEATH!"

"I am an evil giraffe, and I shall eat more leaves from this tree then prehaps I should, so that other giraffes may die." (I threw this in cause my mom, my daughter and I all call each other giraffes. We're all legs and look kinda gawky, but in a good way.)

"Never put a sock in a toaster."

“'ello, Sue. I've got legs. Do you like bread? I've got a French loaf. Bye! I love you”

"I long for a grapefruit."

OK, I got carried away but I love Eddie Izzard and I needed a big smile. And for the most part it's all food related.

It was cream cheese, chocolate and yellow cakes each with buttercream. She really loved the cream cheese.
