for my nephew’s upcoming 4th birthday, i offered ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Miette’s Tomboy (page 145). but my sister “kindly declined” in favor to sugar drama.
From H: “ok. i hope you eventually get the point: it is NOT about been a cake diva or show drama, it is about teaching people what GOOD CAKE is. always texture and flavor first!!!! cake shouldn’t be some sugar decoration. and i don’t take credit for everything, i always say whose recipe it is, and who are the vendors that contributed to my cakes!”
From G: “I do not think it will feed 50-70 people. plus you will not like me putting some decoration on top that will not meet your standards. find somebody else to show off that will let the baker do his wish instead of the client’s. You cakes are the best, but dealing with you and your cake-diva-drama is too much for me…. I rather pay for “whatever” and avoid dealing with you. Sorry for the trouble.”
From H: “do you want this cake? the rose is going to be yellow of course, and he will love that! it is a chocolate layer cake with vanilla buttercream. and i already have the buttercream done, ready to be slapped on the cake!”
