All of my cake classes have paid off... A friend asked me to make a graduation cake for her daughter's college graduation. It was fun dreaming up the cake, but it was a little stressful actually making and decorating the cake because I wanted it to be perfect. It was a "real" cake, as opposed to a "practice" cake. I didn't charge much and I could have easily charged twice what I did charge, but I didn't feel comfortable giving a price... I really need to work on that.
