Saturday's wedding cakes were the first of the season to be made and delivered on a really hot day.
My car was nicely cool and the AC was miraculously working. The delivery drive was very, very stressful. At 52 mph, in a 55 zone, I had a line of cars following me down the mountain, including a sheriff's car, fer cryin' out loud. This is why I put a Fleur Cakes~Wedding Cakes decal on the back of my car! Maybe it should say, Back off! Cake on Board! Or After twenty hours of work I'm not speeding up!
Delivery #1 went perfectly and the cake was in perfect condition. Delivery #2, not so much. The steep, bumpy driveway to the vineyard location was the worst part of all. It jiggled and rocked the cake and caused the weight of the roses to pull on the many layers of cream filling.
The funny thing is, after all the hours spent on these cakes, baking, filling, icing, decorating, delivering...they don't exist any more! Except in memory and photos....
