Well not make the most beautiful cake ever. Cakes take much longer than an hour, and to manage two in that time was a miracle in and of itself. Then you add that they were cakes that I was asked last minute to "fix". So I called a great friend and her and I made frosting, put the crumbling cakes back together with a lot of frosting, frosted and added a little girly to the cakes. They weren't a great masterpiece, they have many things wrong with them. But considering the time constraint I was happy with them. Now think what they could have looked like had I just made them from scratch. It's much easier to bake with a days notice than to fix in an hour. Just sayin'
