can you believe it was?

(they decorated it light blue and put decorating sugar and coconut on the sides and edges to make it like ice and sow, the put a little penguin on top and ds did the words, but the frosting for the writing was too runny, more like flood icing, so it wasn't very legible, but i really thought it was cute and thoughtful and that's what mattered most, wouldn't you agree?)

Wouldn't depend on how imperfect the cake was?
Did you know I still can't get cakes to rise properly in my fan assisted oven :s ?

have you checked if your oven is allright?
(My friend had the same problem and it turned out her oven didn't reach temperature)
