My biggest problem(s)!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
My biggest problem seems to be spelling! What a dork I am sometimes!! I just get so concentrated on the perfection of my handwriting that I've forgotten letters! I've done this twice now...I really have to pay attention to what I'm doing now!

One other disaster - I was finished with a wedding cake and putting each layer in the back of the jeep. I came out with one of the layers and my cat was in the back of the jeep chowing down on the cake! I was sooooo mad!! Lucky he ran - or we would have grilled him for dinner! (kidding). Well, I had no choice but to take off the "infected area" and fill in the giant hole with frosting! Luckily, that cake never got cut that night! Learned a valuable lesson that day and was very late getting to the set up. People were standing around watching me set it up. I bet my blood pressure was deadly for about 2 hours!

Cat's eat cake too! It must be the butter icon_razz.gif I'm such a dork that I had to read your pic descriptions just to find the spelling errors!

Your cakes are nice and pretty, the writing is real good, but how on earth can you in good conscious deliver a wedding cake that your cat was chowing down on. That is just gross!!!! Sorry for my comment, but seems that you could have done something different. Now I know this will probably get deleted. I'm not usually critical. Probably no one will answer anymore of my questions!!!

Well I did say that I removed the portion all around the eaten area....I know it is just the "thought" of it that is gross, but I had no choice. I didn't make an entire extra decorated layer of wedding cake to bring along and they were all different sizes too. I'm not a gross person - I'm a very SANITARY person and did everything I could to fix the problem - and I was mortified, but I was literally walking out the door! Hope everyone understands this - I don't need a bad reputation - I just thought I'd share the misery which is what this section was created for. icon_sad.gif

Everyone is free to express how they feel. I think this was a case of fixed cake or no cake. At least the infected part was cut off and it didn't get eaten...well not that night anyway. This was a true cake disaster...poor sunlover...I wouldn't have traded places with you that day for anything!

Even when a cat "chows down" their mouths are very small and I'll bet that "giant hole" was actually not all that big! What else was she supposed to do, she was loading her car to deliver a wedding cake, should she just call them and say sorry, I can't make it? I can just imagine how that would have gone over!

IMHO She did the only thing she could do, remove the area where the cat had eaten, repair the cake and go! Janice

Sorry sunlover, like u said, it was the "thought of it" that was gross. You gotta do what u gotta do. I dont usually make a "just in case something happens cake", I do always carry enough supplies for any repairs that I may need to make, when setting up wedding cakes.

just something for you all to "chomp" on.....
cat and dogs mouths, though kind of disqusting to think about, are very sanitary... I have had several doctors tell me that... because I was always wondering about our dogs licking my kids face, and thier booboos and the doctors said that their saliva has some kind of antibody to it..... now I'm no doctor, but I tend to believe things that make sense...and especially if I can find info on the internet about it.

I can't count how many times I've had to scrape off my writing and redo it because I've forgotten a letter....I did it again last night! icon_cry.gif It's very frustrating. Your not a dork....happens to everyone at least once I'm sure. After all we are only human! icon_biggrin.gif

I always used to spell CONGRATULATIONS wrong!!! Now when I write it on a cake I say to myself, CON-GRAT-U-LA-TIONS. Now that I do that I spell it right every time!!!!

Hey Cocakedecorator!!!

That's what I always did too!! So thats why I came up with my new method and really emphasised the T in the GRAT part because I also used a "D" instead of a "T"!!!
