I was asked by a co-worker to make a b-day cake for his daughter, and she wanted a summer cake I said fine. What i did not realize is that was his daughters name and she wanted her name made out of cake, and each letter alternating in flavor of chocolate and vanilla, and it had to be red, white and blue. Whew! what did I get myself into? I stood up to the challange and was proud of the outcome and his daughter loved the cake.

You did a great job, but I can't believe that your co-worker had the nerve to ask for such a detailed, elaborate cake. You can certainly be proud of the final results.

I can't believe anyone would have the nerve to ask for such a detailed cake.  Unless they were willing to pay a lot of money for it.  Or if it was a special favorite relative.  I can't imagine the amount of work that took.

That must've been a special co-worker for you to do all that work.  How old was this child to make such a complicated request?  lol
