A Humbling Disaster

There are always moments in life that remind us just how far we are from where we want to be.

I had one of these moments last week when I was out of town. My sister graduated from college and I told her I'd make a cake for her. I didn't have enough room to bring all of my supplies with, so I just bought a few tips, a decorator bag, and some gel colors, thinking I could work with just buttercream.


I'll be brief:

warm cake + cold, stiff frosting + too much water (to compensate for stiff frosting) = complete disaster.

Being in a rush and having no plan doesn't not help either.
