My friends, cake decorating can be hard. Why do you think we have so much material? But bakers can make their jobs a lot easier by just knowing their limitations.
For instance, bakers, say someone asks you to make a groom's cake that looks like their BMW:
...but you're just figuring out what "edible markers" are.
In that case, maybe say no.
See how much better that would have been?
Ok, now let's practice together! I'll play the customer.
Hi! Can you make me a cake that looks like this shoe?
Now you say, "No. No, I can't."
I'd really love Maleficent on a cake! Can you do that?
"No. No, I can't."
Aw, then how about Tinkerbell?
"Sure! No probl... I mean, no. No, I can't."
See how easy that is? And hey, being able to say no to orders you can't do will give you more time for the ones you can!
Or you could just fill the donuts.
