The cake itself was easy-peasy (and so delicious says me and my husband who got to eat all the extra).
I got this commission via facebook and I was so excited about it, I let myself agree to having it delivered on the same day my cousin was getting married in Newport - totally the opposite direction.
I spent weeks/months trying to coordinate someone to drop off the cake for me. My friends had to work/entertain inlaws, my cousins from the other side were all out of town at college or had a previous commitment (to the other event I would have gone to on 5/19). Finally, Kim suggested I try TaskRabbit.
In a day and a half, I had two people bidding for me to pay them to take my cake to Port Hueneme. Hooray! I picked one and in the days before the cake delivery we had a little snaffoo. The venue wouldn't be open to vendors until 2:30 and he'd hoped to deliver it earlier. I worried that he wouldn't be able to deliver it if he couldn't drop it off early, so I spazzed out and tried to find a backup delivery person in case he couldn't.
Oh, by the way, this was a vanilla cake with cream cheese filling and strawberries. Yum yum yum.
