Somewhere in all that mess, I got a phone call ... from Tanya (the pilot). She said she LOVED the cake I made for her last weekend and wanted me to make an exact replica for her actual birthday. WHAT!? Of course I said yes!!! Who cares that I already have two other orders that I've obsessed over for at least a week. It was the BEST COMPLIMENT I've ever received about my cakes. Having someone so pleased with their surprise cake that they wanted another one!
I was also happy because I had an opportunity to fix the "mistakes" from the last cake. Seriously ... don't make me point them out to you. Don't pretend you didn't cringe at that bright blue airplane.
I'm so glad I got to redo this cake ... and meet Tanya!!! She was so sweet and appreciative! I hope it tasted as good the 2nd time around. I think it looked much better.
