Being a keen baker, a Ms Millie Maltby decided to make and decorate her own three tier wedding cake for her marriage to fiance Matt. It was all going exceedingly well until it came to delivering the cake to the wedding venue in Brixham, England. It turns out cakes and long hot car rides don’t mix well, as Ms Maltby soon found out: “We were quite cautious to drive carefully,” the bride wrote on Facebook. “However, when we arrived and opened the cake box, it appeared that the hot weather caused the buttercream to melt and the cake just gave up. I was a very calm bride and it didn’t seem to matter as I was marrying the man of my dreams and everything else seemed so insignificant. Matt, on the other hand, was heartbroken. He felt awful, as I had taken so long to bake and decorate the cake and I had been taunting him about how yummy the cake was going to be.” All was not lost however. It just so happened that a Ms Clare Vaz, the owner of Patty Piece of Cake, turned up at the same hotel at the same time to deliver cupcakes for another event. What’s more Ms Vaz’s husband works at the hotel. So when staff became aware of the mishap they asked the cakemaker if she could help. “With time against me, I just didn’t have time to bake, cool and decorate a new middle tier, so thankfully I had a dummy cake which I used to create the new middle tier. I managed to near enough colour-match the pink to the original cake too which was a bonus,” said Ms Vaz. “For the top tier, I removed all the flowers and stripped off the damaged fondant. I then re-crumb-coated the cake, chilled it and recovered it in white fondant…I washed the ribbons, as they had been damaged with the cake and cleaned off the flowers.” Eh Volia, the cake looked as good as new. A very grateful Ms Maltby added: “To take the time to do that for a stranger is just astounding, and something you just don’t see anymore…I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank Clare enough.” Speaking to HuffPost, Ms Vaz, the cakemaker extraordinaire, said: “They both loved the finished cake but quite honestly, I didn’t really do much at all. Millie did all the hard work ― my part was just minimal in the whole event.” Spoken like a true hero.
