A friend asked if she could pay me to make her son’s birthday cake. When you post pictures of your cakes to FB, that happens a lot.
I always say no.
I don’t like the pressure of being paid to make something look good (I’m a perfectionist and can’t stand mistakes with my cakes), but I do love making a cake. So, I went to her house and made it there while our kids played and she learned basic fondant skills. It was the perfect way to spend a Friday morning… So relaxing!
(The cake isn’t “done” in this photo… She will add a fondant trim to the bottom once she transfers it to her serving plate.)
