First Communion Cake



This cake was made for a customer for a First Communion.  It has white butter cream frosting with delicate flowers placed around in the shape of crosses. The writing was done with stencils. It was inspired from another cake on my blog. This is exactly what the customer ordered. We sat down and went over everything before the big day. Let's just say the customer was not satisfied upon arrival of this cake. I think she didn't like the fact that everything was white, but that is how she asked it to be. There was a beautiful colorful girly cake with butterflies on it for a girl on the table when I got there. Maybe after seeing that cake, she was expecting something magnificent. I have to say that colorful cake was very beautiful.  Like I said, every cake of mine has a story. This is the only cake of mine that a customer had a problem with.

I think it was a beautiful cake, so elegant!! It must have been hard to work so hard and then have the customer not happy with your work! Good to hear that was the first (and hopefully last) time that happended. I guess it is not easy to please everyone all the time! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cake as well as your story. I think it is so easy for me to discouraged when someone does not like my work, it's nice to hear when others go through it and more than successfuly move on!! Great to find your site through VoiceBoks and Members to Remember!!

That's a beautiful cake. I'm sorry the customer didn't like it. I would have been thrilled with it. I didn't even get my boys a cake.

Visiting you from vB :)

What a beautiful cake! The only thing I see wrong with it is that the writing is hard to read because it is also right. But maybe that's just the picture? Also, like you said, the customer wanted it all white.

I'm sorry the customer didn't like the cake. I guess there are some people who just can't be pleased or satisfied. I lived with a girl like that a couple years ago. That whole school year I kept my mouth shut in order to avoid any trouble. In some cases, that's all you can do. Just keep doing what you're doing :)

How frustrating for you. That cake seems like it would have been absolutely perfect for a communion. Too bad the customer "forgot" what she originally wanted. I love the white on white.

I like it. It's just that we are so used to colorful cakes that all-white might look different. You are setting a trend, so be happy about it :)

Thanks for linking up at Tea Time Thursdays @ Kreative Korner and adding to the fun. The party for this week is going on... hope to see you there again :)
