I had such a wonderful time putting together this cake buffet for a wedding last week. It involved more hours than expected, but I pulled it off and the cakes were welcomed by smiles and eager guests.
The morning started off great; for the exception of miscalculating the amount of cream cheese frosting needed and a little mishap with the ganache (all resolved later of course), everything else was perfect. That never happens. Little did I know that the weather and my truck would cause a little setback. In most places, rain would not be a problem, and for me, it’s not. Growing up in Texas meant taking on rainy days and more often than not, floods, so I am quite familiar with driving in this type of weather. Arizonans and Snowbirds on the other hand are terrible at driving in rain, so I had to be extra cautious knowing that silly drivers would be out and about. No big deal, I knew I would had to deal with that, but I didn’t know my truck that I love using for deliveries because it has so much space would die on me. That’s right, a dead battery. Yikes! I ended up taking my car which had its battery replaced earlier last week. If you know me at all, you know that anything driving-related that can go wrong happens in spurts for me. 🙁
Luckily, everything turned out well and the cakes arrived at the venue all intact and with a few last minute details, I was able to create this beauty. What I love is that I finally had a chance to take better photos of most of my cakes. Yay! You’ll get to meet them all over the next couple of weeks.
