Left flower nail in cake!!!!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

So this week has been pretty busy, I just delived 2 cakes today and I'm working on another one tonight. Well as I'm getting ready to put my cake into the oven tonight, I realize I can't find my flower nail...then it hit me!

I left it in one of the cakes I delivered today!!!!! I started flipping out, panicking...ugh! It was for a guy who works with my brother so I called my brother and told him and he is going to warn the guy. I didn't have his number myself to call and apologize, but I told my brother to tell him I'm sorry and I'll give him $5 back. Has anyone else done this?? I feel like a fool icon_redface.gif

OMG, I don't know what I would do! You did the only thing possible, and that's to call them and warn them, and tell them you want your flower nail back, lol.

If it's any consolation, my Mom cooks pies for people for Thanksgiving, and one year she had over 100 orders. She must have gotten tired, because 3 people called and said that though the pies were good, they could have done without the paper layer between the crust and filling..........

OMG!!! I am sooo sorry that happened! You must've been in a panic!
I can not say that I have done that...yet! (I am knocking on wood for myself!)Haven't been decorating too long though. But, guess what!? You are human and don't be so hard on yourself! Everyone makes mistakes! icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you all so much for your responses. I'm not feeling quite as bad as I was, and at least now I know that I will never do that again!

Hasn't happened yet, but you never know!

Don't think it was a big deal. It's too big to go unnoticed when the cake is sliced/served/eaten, so there's no danger of anyone choking on it.

HTH

Hey, I"m sorry for you because I can imagine that feeling in your stomach when you realized what you had done! Still, I agree with another poster. Its big enough that noone is likely to miss it and its not something gross. Truthfully, if you hadn't told them, they probably would have thought it was supposed to be there as part of the cake construction!

About a year ago, I made a cake for my niece and my brother found a staple in the cake (thank god it was family!). I don't own a stapler so it still mystifies me. I still get nervous when I sell a cake that I'm going to get a call that they found something in the cake..talk about OCD!

I wonder if the staple could have come from the cake mix? Thats if you were using a mix

I did a four-tier wedding cake for one of my best friends a few years ago. Toward the end of the reception, the bride's mother approached me and told me they'd found a pen embedded in the bottom of the largest cake! It was a huge 12" fruit cake and I must have levelled it, then turned it upside down and plonked it on top of the pen. How embarrassing!!!!!!! I'm just so pleased it was for someone I knew. They had a laugh about it anyway.

Oh my gosh, that is something that i would totally do.

A pen? That is funny. I wouldn't worry about the nail. It's a legitimate baking tool and it's big enough for someone to notice before putting in their mouth. plus, with it being on the bottom center, it's most likely that section of cake won't even be touched.

when they notice, just tell them it was there on purpose. you meant to do it. its a new trick to ..uhhh... make the cake taste better... yeah thats it....icon_wink.gif
