Not bad, right? Kinda cute, goes with the "ball" theme. I wasn't too keen on how that blue color turned out but that's not the worst of it. Just when I've gotten to thinking that maybe my cakes are good and I ought to start charging for them...just when I've introduced myself to new acquaintances as a cake decorator...THIS happens:
When I was setting the top layer on the round, a big chunk crumbled off in my hand. There was nothing I could do! I tried filling in with icing but knew that was a flawed plan. Then I was going to get one of those huge jawbreakers, the kind that are the size of your fist, and wedge it into the depression so it looked like someone had thrown a ball in the cake. Decided against that and just put the ugly part in the back. Still, I knew it was there and it just ruined the whole cake for me. Seriously, what if I had made this for someone who was paying me, not a good friend, but an actual client? I think I would have cried my eyes out and spent the whole night baking a whole new cake.
