yeah, so anyone who has every delivered precious cargo knows how scary it can be. i’m sure you’re all thinking about your cute precious babies, and no doubt they’re cute, and precious, but you’ve got all sorts of contraptions to keep them safe and whole. imagine cake. well not just cake, but someone’s dreams, expectations, and happy moments, all wrapped up in very fragile, delicate sugar. not fun. downright terrifying.
since i like to live on the edge, not only do i deliver cake in the metro atlanta area, battling traffic on the downtown connector, and 285, i volunteer to take and send cakes out of state and out of the country. this time – new york, for my friends’ wedding. i couldn’t go and so a deep sense of guilt prodded me to say – “no problem, i can just send the cake with my dear husband; on the airplane. no biggie.”
so after a couple of weeks of panic and planning, i shipped the cake stand by mail, and then the cake (and groom’s cake) via airtran airways, from atlanta, ga to queens, ny. and you know what? it arrived, in one piece, safe and sound without so much as a fingerprint. wanna see how i did it?
