Hmmmmmm my experience ! One Wednesday morning as a call woke me up from bed and i happily received the call, behold it was a client calling for traditional wedding cake for the inview Saturday, i joyfully accepted the work thou its to near. The cake was all about a gorge cake, i bake the cake on Thursday and covered with hope on Friday and finished it very late at night wanted to deliver on Saturday morning. My dear fellow baker! Hmmm its Saturday morning, on getting to my sitting room because den i still bake at home behold my fondant fell off the cake and was see the cake itself naked half side *tears* #TEARS why? Why? Why? I asked myself before i was told that the weather was not good for my fondant recipe bc its was raining season and beside the outer part of my sitting room wall was not yet cemented #TEARS "what do i do" i asked my self, nothing Dan to patch the cake with my left fondant, wasn't happy anyway but that year,that month,that day was boring. Will never ever forget, tears roll down my chic

The challenged I had was in the past and as a beginner in cake biz.it was my first wedding cake after baking and decorating leaving the cake on the table that was on Friday night and the wedding day was the ff. Day being Saturday only for me to come downstairs to get water to drink, I noticed the middle cake had fallen my heart skipped and fast heart beat I stood motionless for a while and said oh God what do I do I gathered the pieces together I used butter icing as glue shaped them up and coated the outer part before using remaining fondant to cover it up before decorating but did not stack them again until I got to the wedding venue to avoid another calamity from happening and I made sure the table was very strong.
