"everybody standby, she's going to hit the brake! hold on to something, anything, brace ourselves!" ( the cupcakes must have been saying this at that moment, if they could talk...hehe...........)
but it was too late. The traffic light was yellow and was going to change to red and as she hit the brake, it felt as if the brake was not functioning properly and that was why she had to hit it extra hard and within seconds, all 72 mini cupcakes came plunging forward hitting the box cover, hitting one another, smearing each other with the blue and white buttercream and chocolate ganache!
"ouch! ouch! that hurts! oh...look at you! and look at me! we are all a mess! we can't go to the open house looking like this!"
two survived the ordeal....well....barely.....whilst the rest were badly damaged so to speak.
I was about to finish my lunch and getting ready to start my next deco on the MCB birthday when I received a call from her. I saw her number and was wondering, if everything was okay because she was here less than ten minutes ago.
"Zue, I had to make the sudden and immediate brake at the traffic light and........."
she need not finish her sentence for I knew what could and might have happened.
oh no! my logos, I hope that set wasn't damage or was it?
" I tried to rearrange them back in the box but..........."
'no worries Kak, just bring them over and see if I can fix them',
was all I could say, that was before knowing and seeing the extent of the damage that had been done on the cupcakes.
I summoned my kids," Tsara', Ameer, standby ! We have a mission! Rescue operation! get the OT ready!"
Was this mission impossible? I didn't think so but we had to work fast within the one hour period!
Waited anxiously for her and when I saw the cupcakes, my heart went out to them....oooo my poor babies.......look at all of you! all smeared up and quickly I looked at the vanilla set with the logos, hoping that they were okay, and my heart sank when I saw them, the damage was minimal , thank God it wasn't that bad, not as bad as the chocolate set, but I still need to take the logos out and reapply the buttercream on the cupcakes, cleaned the logo a bit and put them back.Fortunately I didn't have to re-do the logo, I could still use them, and with a little help from my two kids, a few brushes stroke, cleaning the paper cupcs, re apply both the buttercream and ganache, new deco, we managed to salvage the wreck.... and they looked as good as new!. Who would have thought that were involved in some kind of mishap earlier on!
Mission impossible! No.Mission is completed . she said that she would come over later, after going back to change her clothes too for it too got smeared with buttercream.....that lovely green baju kurung. i told her that I would sms her once the cuppies were ready and when they did, it was after 4 pm . the open house would start around 4.30 pm and thnakfully hubby dearest volunteered to send them to her office cos I had to start cracking on the next deco which should be ready by 6 pm. thank you D for the offer, appreciate that.
