50th birthday cake

50th birthday cake - I wasn't going to post this one because it was such a stress cake for me, but I decided it at least shows how I am under pressure. *grin* This cake was perfect the first time and I was so happy about it. Then someone in front of me stopped amazing fast for this little cat and the cake....well....at least the cat lived. I was a puddle of tears, but pulled myself together and headed back home. I had an hour until the party. The top layer was not salvagable, but the bottom two were not badly damaged. So I threw some rice cereal treats in a pan and recreated the top layer. Luckily, other than a few broken arms, noses and ears...the figures stood up really well. The man on top is a little shorter than he was, but all in all, a good save. It is still not as pretty as it was (unfortunately I didn't get a picture before I left), but for a cake that grew wings, not so bad either. :) Luckily, it was for a dear friend of mine and she was a sweetheart about the whole thing.

I'm also glad you posted it! I love seeing your creations! Glad you were able to save it. Also, the vanilla and raspberry 40th cake looks gorgeous and sounds so yummy! Wish I could take a big bite. Keep up the good work!

What a stressful day for you, a decorators nightmare! It is a wonderful creation. For an ignorant New Zealander, what are rice cakes?
Cheers Wendy
