I was asked to make a cake along with cupcakes for a Hen do, with the bride to be being part of a Muay Thai team. We designed a boxing ring style cake, with the bride to be stood in the ring in her kit with a hen do sash and tiara on.
The cake and cupcakes were gluten free, although I did include silver balls in the design which do contain gluten so I made sure I let them know this when I delivered the cakes.
We made a few adjustments to the cake before it went off to the hen do as it was brought to my attention that they were not too keen on the blue mat. We hadn’t planned the cake to that much detail so when making it I had googled boxing rings and a lot of them were coming up black and the picture I had been sent also had a black mat. I was keen to not do black as I felt it would be too dark, so I went with a lighter blue – bad choice as I also found out later that the bride to be was a Liverpool Fan – so we had to get this sorted!
I spent half an hour on it during my lunch at work making a few changes to the cake, changing the mat to white and re-doing the message. I also added some bunting in the same colours as the cupcakes to bring them together and make it a little more girly.
The changes meant I had a happy customer and I thanked her for letting me know how she felt as it was simple enough for me to make the changes required and we have to ensure the customer is happy with what they buy.
