Squiggly Wedding Cake

I have to admit when the bride first showed me a photo of (the cake that inspired) this cake, I didn't like it.  I'm a very orderly person and at first glance, the the piping on this cake is anything but orderly.

But I'm a big girl and a professional decorator, so I put on my big girl professional cake decorating pants and started piping (with a #1 tip).

If there's any way to pipe this thing orderly, I sure did it.  Droplets first, then then squiggles... I found a way to make order out of the chaos.  And the more I worked on it, the more it grew on me.  By the time I was finished, I was quite proud.

Is there a lesson to be learned from all of this?  Hmmm... we don't always get to do the cakes we want (or like) but you can always choose to have fun doing it and if you're lucky, wind up liking it in the process.
