I received a call from a potential client that said she had gone to a party and had seen a cake that had made for her cousin and she was impressed on the quality of the work and cleanliness, but she wondered if it tasted as good as it looked. She was blown away with the flavor too and decided to ask for my number. We spoke on the phone and she told me what her theme was. She wanted an extra special cake for her son's 4th birthday and asked me for my suggestion on a design for the cake and we came to an agreement on taste, color and design. Normally for a cake this size I like meeting with the client and sketching something out for them to here their input if they don't already come with a cake in mind. She also wanted cookies to use as part of the decoration of her dessert table. The flavor was Leelee's specialty vanilla cake with dulce de leche filling. I drove so far with this cake and prayed that animals held up and the tree on top. I made sure I took my cake first aid kit, lol, in case the animals decided to take a dive or something. lol! I am so happy to say that the cake and cookies arrived in one piece. I enjoyed the client's and family's reaction: "can everything be eaten?" The smiles I see on client's faces are priceless to me and make what I do so worth it!
