The next few days I am going to busy baking cakes. Yes, I said cakeS. Not just a cake but two cakes. Two big cakes.
I got a call from a local party planner asking me to help her out with two big parties she is working on.
One is a Willy Wonka theme and the other is a Baseball theme. Both are for kids.
I can't get over how many parents are willing to pay $350+ for a kids birthday cake.
I agreed to do them. I don't know why. I get so stressed when I make cakes where I get paid hundreds for them. I mean really, that's a lot of money for cake. At least to me it is.
I always worry that no matter what I do it won't be good enough to make the customer happy. But, I guess they are because I do get repeat customers and referrals.
When I do a cake all I see are the flaws. I pick apart everything and have never made a cake I was really happy with. I'm my own worst critic.
So, if I'm not around for a day or two, you know it's because I'm stressing over the cakes.
It's funny because I wanted to learn cake decorating just for fun. It is fun. Though when I get paid to do a cake it becomes a job and sort of takes the fun out of it.
Oh why do I do this to myself.....
