The other day, one of my regulars called to order a cake for her husband's birthday. She didn't give me much direction, just that she wanted white cake and frosting, so that people's teeth wouldn't get turned funny colors. And buttercream...ah buttercream, we meet again.
I'm not getting any better at smoothing, that's for sure.
I don't know if she liked it or not - she never comments on them either way. But since this is the 4th cake I've done for her, I'm guessing she likes my work!
