I was so proud of this cake. We made it in Aggieland and transported it all the way to Mansfield with no problems. Once we got to Mandy's house, Stephen took it out of the car and tripped over the curb. His thumb went right in. You can see the smudge next to the candle. Other than that, it turned out great!
Why do cakes cost so much?
When you are ordering a cake for that special occassion, keep in mind the time that the cake decorator is going to put into your special cake. Most cakes take hours to decorate and then you have to consider the time the decorator takes to make the cakes and icing. Plus, don't forget about their costs for the ingredients, supplies, transportation materials like boxes, and clean-up.
