Phew.... I USED to think that i will never work well under pressure, in fact i thought i would BUCKLE under pressure. Whenever i work on anything, i like to take my own time and enjoy the process. But this cake showed me that i CAN survive under pressure (though not necessarily without screaming out expletives in the process). Friday night whilst i was out celebrating my lubb's birthday with my gfs, i got a text from a client who has previously ordered the basketball cake and iPhone cake. Client requested a cake for her sissy who happens to be a Tim Burton movie buff, and sent me a picture of a Nightmare Before Christmas cake she came across over the net. With a deadline looming in just 3 days, i got straight to work on sunday and have been at it right up till this morning!
All in all, i had helluva fun makin this cake; bones, pumpkin, cat, Sally Stitches and all. Cake was chocolate pound cake with oreos and cream filling and chocolate buttercream for 8" and 6" tiers respectively.
PS: any other fondant cake makers out there have any idea what to do with cake scraps? its a huge waste to just toss out perfectly good cake, and i think the kids and husband are pretty tired of eating them plain like that.
