You Get What You Get And You Don't Get Upset!

Or you try really hard not to.

This is the cake that I wanted albeit without the frosting flowers and with a few small Dahlias.....


These are the cakes that were delivered.


In lieu of centerpieces we had 6" cakes for each table which were to be iced on milk glass cake stands in a fondant bright white frosting - seamless, classic, gorgeous, elegant. Rather we got 6" cakes in off white buttercream frosting with some sort of wavy, cheesy, tacky 4 year old birthday cake trim placed on 7" pieces of cardboard extending over the rim of the cake plates.

I'm tortured but I know I have to let it go. Whats done is done. Brides to be, dont make the same mistake as me. Pictures speak a thousand words and luckily you wont need nearly that many describe your special cake. One persons seamless is another persons crackled and color is in the eye of the beholder so get your inspiration pix in order before you get your ordering in order! Says I, the slightly disappointed perfectionist bride.

Aw honey, I would never have even thought of it if you didn't mention it--they look gorgeous and I couldn't stop looking at the big beautiful bloom on top!
