Oilily Diaper Bag Cake

Here's the other of the 2 cakes I did this week. While other was "smooth sailing", this was was the complete opposite. It first started out well. I was a little behind because of my little girl but I knew I'd catch up of which I did. Day before this cake was due at about 3pm, I got the cake covered with fondant. I had the cake sit on a bucket since I had the other cake sitting on the turntable. As I was getting ready to start painting the cake, I must have accidentally hit the base board. It was such a blur but the next thing I know I see the cake FALL. Yes, it fell. Still on the table but the cake came off the board and my fondant work was ruined. My heart sunk. It being a bag, I had to do the entire cake over since the pieces are all connected.

The cake was due 4pm Saturday together with 30 cupcakes. I was rushing like crazy yet I failed to finish on time. It was suppose to be a pick up but I offered to deliver knowing I won't get it done on time. We (with hubby from work and baby in pj's) got to the venue 45 minutes late and I still had to put some details on the cake.

Exact words written on the changing pad that came with the bag. Contrary to what this says, I was actually stressed out and shaking writing this plaque because it was already 4pm! I guess this bag was sending me a message...

Despite the rush and the big disaster, things ended with a happy note. I did realize that I missed out on a few details that I had intended to put but everyone loved the cake. The biggest surprise for the expecting mom and guests was when she opened my aunt's gift, it was the diaper bag itself. Everyone said, "It's the cake!" :)

Cupcakes - simple as requested

Congratulations Johanna! Welcome baby Elizabeth Alexandra!
