Can I do it? I wondered.
I thought I could. I had convinced the world I could with my Instagram and Facebook posts, but could I?
The cakes were all made, iced and lined up in a row. After approximately ten hours of making fondant flowers and a similar time investment in making and icing the five cakes, the final test had arrived.
The challenge – can I stack these cakes without breaking the flowers, damaging the icing or, worse yet, one of them slowly sliding off and landing on the floor in an explosion of crumbs.
My hands and arms were trembling as I gently lifted each cake onto the one below in order of size. I used a cake size lifter and two egg lifters to lift, maneuver and align each cake.
What was I thinking – of course I can.
Happy 80th birthday, Mom.
