A Question Often Asked.
That leads me to the following question that we are often asked. Have you ever had any disasters? We wish we could just answer that question with a simple "nope." But, we are human and making these cakes is hard work. And as if creating these delicious works of art wasn't hard enough, then we have to deliver them! Some of these cakes are very heavy and sometimes our deliveries require carrying them up or down stairs. Eeek. ;) How about driving with them? Sometimes we'll take a longer route because we know it's a smoother ride. Well. Before this winter hit! Trying to navigate around all of these pot holes is an adventure all on it's own!
Since we are often asked, I thought you might enjoy reading about a recent cake delivery. It did not go as smoothly as we had hoped. Read on....
Adventures in Delivering a Casino Cake
Well, somehow (my guardian angel, I believe) I got the car straight and we came to a stop. We did not hit anything. We were fine. The cake was fine. But our hearts were pounding and our stomachs were doing flip flops. We sat there for a minute. Just stopped in the road. Debating what to do. Turning back was not an option because it meant going back down that road. Not delivering that cake was not an option either. So we forged on. Slooowwwllly. Eventually we arrived at the house and the cake and cupcakes were well received. We sent everything up, said our thank yous and headed back to the snow and ice covered car. We both knew that we could not go back the way we came. No way. No how. So I looked at the map and chose a better route on the GPS. Better, but not good. We managed to get back without any incidents. However that 18 minute GPS time turned into a 2 hour round trip ride.
So there you have it. Our recent cake disaster. ;) And now we present you with the small casino cake and casino cupcakes for the 40th birthday party on one snowy evening.
