Caking while it's quaking!

Caking, just like basketball, never stops. This is what I believe in.

Despite experiencing a 7.2 magnitude earthquake last Tuesday (it was intensity 6 in Dumaguete), I had to press on and go on with my caking activities. Why? Because I have one birthday cake, two weddings cakes, and 80 cookies scheduled for this week!

So never mind if there are already close to a thousand aftershocks that shook us between Tuesday morning and today, the cake must go on!!!

This cake was due on the morning of October 16. Thankfully, I was able to bake the cake on the afternoon of the 14th. But after experiencing the earthquake inside my car (total Shake, Rattle, and Roll experience, literally!), I got "seasick" and dizzy for the rest of the day on the 15th. Each aftershock was nauseating, seriously. I couldn't bring myself to get to work and bake another sheet of cake (this was supposed to be twice as thick). Plus, our electricity was on and off! So I texted my customer (who was pretty shaken herself), and asked her permission so that I can simplify the design. And so I whipped up this very simple but adorable Disney Cars cake. Not bad, considering the circumstances, right?

Happy Birthday, King! I hope you liked your cake!
