"I am not concerned that you have fallen -- I am concerned that you arise.
You guys, see that lovely cake there on the right? If you followed my IG Stories yesterday, you may remember the TOTAL DISASTER that happened with it (started puckering on the side for whatever reason and was basically self-destructing). I called my sister and wanted to bawl my eyes out - it was less than a couple hours before the party. Not enough time to start over, even though I wanted to. I hated what happened, and have never had a cake screw up so badly before.
I decided to fix it - (cake surgery is not recommended 😬). I ended up ripping off as much of the frosting and ganache drip as I could without damaging the cake, refrosting it, praying, freezing it, refrigerating it, frosting it again, adding the drip, placing the flowers, and it turned out just lovely!
I know there's a lot of perfection on IG, but I feel like instead of posting a pretty picture and bragging about cake prowess and expertise, I'd share how I fail BIG time sometimes, too! But when we fail, the best part of the story is what we do next: We get up. We slap on our cake game face and refrost the situation in a new way - the best we can with what we're given. I am not a perfect baker (and I don't want to ever make you feel like I am the baking queen without mistakes), but I want to you remember that I've never been known to give up (macarons, exhibit A, haha). So whatever you're facing today, this week, or even this second: arise! You already have a cheerleader here, who knows that if I can save a cake from dying 😂, YOU can do anything! 😘
