A baker documented how she got out of a serious bind at work.
One morning, Ibrahimi got a call from a bride saying she was ready to pick up her cake — in two hours. It prompted the baker to kick it into overdrive and get the wedding cake done. Here’s how it turned out.
In the 5-minute video with sped-up footage of Ibrahimi making the wedding cake, she described how she pulled it off. There were a lot of hiccups. Fortunately, she had the cake sponges “ready to go,” but that was pretty much the only thing.
She had to go to the store to buy supplies and also had to make two types of buttercream. When she could finally stack the cakes, she ran into another issue: The cake boards were showing. So Ibrahimi thought quickly and added pearl fondant icing to cover them up.
When the bride told her she was 10 minutes away and only needed her apartment number, there was another issue. She remembered the bride requested fresh sunflowers. Ibrahimi sent her husband out to get them, but he could only get synthetic sunflowers.
The baker left the bride hanging for 20 minutes before sending the apartment number to buy time. Then, she only had two minutes to put the giant cake in its box. Somehow, it all worked out.
“I still have no idea how I managed to do this within the two hours,” Ibrahimi said, adding that the bride “absolutely loved it.”
People on TikTok applauded Ibrahimi’s perseverance. Apparently, wedding guests, including the bride, did, too. The video received 15.5 million views.
“IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful cake! Give yourself some credit lady!” the bride wrote. Ibrahimi responded, “This means a lot! Thank you, beautiful.”
“I was at that wedding, and I have to say that was one of the best cakes I have ever tasted, rushed or not you did an incredible job!” a person commented.
“This is just a testament to how talented and professional you are. EVERYONE makes mistakes. But the way you handled the situation was spot on,” a user said.
“That was a roller coaster of emotions,” another wrote.
“My heart was pounding. I personally wouldn’t have been able to cope. I would have been crying on the floor. Props,” a person added.
