Henning estimated the whole ordeal played out in three minutes or less.
“It was kind of scary,” he said. “It was more exciting than anything. But it happened too fast.”
Despite the damage, Henning said Sugar's customers will get their orders over the weekend. Three or four weddings and several birthday parties and other special events are counting on Sugar to deliver, regardless of the act of nature that slung cakes all over the place.
“We had some brides call in about their cakes already,” he said, a can of beer in one hand. “They seemed more concerned about them than our safety ... but that's the way it goes, I guess.
“Tomorrow's going to be a long day.”
Given the close call and the several tons of steel resting mere feet from the business, things certainly could've been worse.
