My Insane Sunday Morning

Last night I worked on cakes until 2:30 in the morning. By the time I got to sleep, it was after 3:30. I had two main cakes to do. The first one was a 3D tractor. The other was a full size sheet cake to go with it. I finished the sheet cake last night and most of the tractor. I was planning on getting up and finishing while Dan took Aaron to Sunday school. Guess what?!!! I got up this morning and the tractor had taken a nose dive of sorts. The bottom two layers had crumbled to bits and the top two had almost completely fallen off. There was not one bit that was salvageable. I was so upset especially considering it was to be picked up at 1:00 and it was already 9. It took me longer than that to where I was the night before. Here is what was left of the first cake...
I sent Aaron off with Dan and got to work starting the cake from scratch. Thankfully, I had more chocolate cake frozen. I finished a little before noon (PURE ADRENALINE!) Thankfully I did because I had just enough time to clean my cake mess up out of the dining room before she showed up... almost an hour early! Needless to say, I didn't make it to church...Here are the finished cakes.

This is the sheet cake that went with the tractor. It was already scored so it was easy for them to cut at the party and each piece had either a soybean or an ear of corn on it.
