Was asked to make a simple butter cake on very short notice. Got the call in the morning and the cake was to be picked up that night itself.
The cake was meant for an “uncle” who was celebrating his 68th birthday. Customer was recommended by my ex-colleague who likes my butter cake but she had no idea what the uncle likes. Was asked to make something pastel and neutral. Made this cake which I thought was too pale and lack something which I couldn’t pinpoint. Added the blue dragees to add more colour to the cake. A friend of mine commented that the cake looked plain and that the design was not my usual style. Well, I really had no idea what the birthday “boy” like and using roses on the cake was a no no…..
Anyway, customer smsed to say that she liked the deco on the cake 🙂
