I forgot to ask my parents to email me some photos for My Cake Story tonight, so I’ll share a funny story that Matt & I had 2 weeks ago. I get A LOT of calls for short notice Cakes from lovely people visiting The Palms. It’s good to have a sense of humour when chatting with me as I don’t get a lot of sleep, have a crazy life, can be delirious at times & have a bizarre sense of humour! 🤣🤪 It’s a Thursday & I’m flat out #caking... Matt: Hi Nadine, Dan from @mobysretreat highly recommended you. We’re visiting The Palms for a birthday party but it’s also my wife’s birthday & I’m wondering if I could order a small cake with you for Sunday, please?
I’d been holding my breath as Country Palings Petals & Pots Cafe & Gifts Green Point had just ordered another 10 Cakes for Friday/Saturday plus I had other wedding & birthday cake orders to make! Remember to breathe!
Me: Sunday is fine, Matt, if you can fit in with what I’m already baking.
Matt decided upon an Upside Down Orange Poppyseed & Nectarine Cake then called me back 5 minutes later as he’d stalked my page & found the Lemon Myrtle Cheesecake on the 10th February! He was very specific! 😄 I told him that it was fine to change, we organised everything & he promised not to call me again....then it was Friday... Matt: Sorry, Nadine.
Me: Matt, you promised not to call me again. You’re being like my husband! 😄
Matt: *Laughing* I know I promised but I told my mum I had ordered the cake for Sunday & she reminded me that my wife’s birthday is actually Saturday & I know you said you couldn’t make anymore for Saturday so I had to call you! 😬
Me: 🤣 You’re hilarious! It’s ok. I stayed up until 4am this morning & got 8 Cakes finished so I’m in good shape to cover any emergencies! I’ll make your cheesecake today & deliver it to Moby’s after I deliver to Country Palings in the morning.
Matt: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! But you won’t stay up that late making my cake, will you?
Me: Maybe...along with everything else. 😜
Unlike last Saturday, everything went to plan! I drove like a Nanna to deliver all the cakes & then celebrated!! Matt text me afterwards, “Hey Nadine everyone is seriously raving about how good
