The day that we delivered to the Plaza Hotel was kind of nice outside, a little cloudy. We were delivering to a 20×20 tent right next to the fountain in the front of the hotel. All of the pieces made it in one piece. About 25 minutes later a freak thunderstorm happened and the whole staff was holding down the sides of the tent. Lucky enough for us, no water damaged had occurred. Once the tent was secured and our security guards in place (yes – we had security!), the team got started putting the structure together. They had 3 days until the event to complete the cake under the tent.
The crew finished the cake 3 hours before their deadline. We cleaned up and let the rest of the event staff do their thing. The RBI crew was invited to the party. It was a lot of fun watching everybody take their pictures in front of the cake and seeing their excitement over something so large and made out of sugar. Ron was very proud of the staff for their creativity and ingenuity in putting something of this magnitude together.
