My Brother's Wedding cake was sabotaged (sp?)!! LONG! - Page 2

post #16 of 50
OMG I'm so sorry - I would have been so p*ssed b/c it does sound like jealousy to me! I'm really glad the bride got to see it before hand.
YOu handled it so wel I would have been bawling my eyes out. Good for you for rising above!

If I am good enough and my brother ever gets married I will put an armed guard on my cake icon_twisted.gif

Really, that is mean. Even if they were cold and the mother in law was just clueless and trying to show off by talking about her cake decorating skills. The fact that she didn't even think about your cake or notice that it was in bad shape earlier is just bad. I am clueless sometimes but that is way too much to be true.

If it was sabotage than that is even worse since that day is for the happy couple. You get more comments about the brides dress than anything at a wedding, so are they going to go rip it up so it does not stand up there flowers? To take out your issues with the cake decorator on the bride and grooms cakes is just so self-centered and just plain wrong that they deserve a life of bad luck for the act (nothing serious but may ever cake they make collapse on them icon_razz.gif).
I am sorry times are too bad, I am not going to return.

I am soooo sorry that happened to you! But thanks for sharing with us. You have to be on your toes these days. Hard to believe how mean some people can be.

Oh gosh I'm so sorry for you! I know how you feel. At my best friend's wedding her BIL took the memory card out of my Digital Rebel which my mom was using to take pics of the ceremony. ( I was the maid of honor) He had the same camera and he wasn't happy that we were moving in on his "photographer" duties. My friend couldn't afford a real photographer and he decided to ruin such a big part of HER day b/c he wanted to get back at us. Some people...

The worst part is, like in your situation, even though its practically a certainty that they sabotaged you there is no solid proof. icon_mad.gif

There is NO WAY THAT CAKE FELL! It was very well doweled on each tier with a center dowel in the center! So, I go in and it's like 100 degrees in the hall! I'm was so upset! The entire bottom layer was gone and so was middle and the top! I asked them why it was so HOT in there, and they tell me they got COLD! I'm like DUH! There's a cake in here- ! I said no, the cake did not FALL- IT MELTED!!!!!




Forgive my confusion here but am I to believe that you are blaming someone else for the cake "meltdown" when you stated that you turned down the A/C?

Did they shut the A/C off completely leading to further destabilization of the cake?

I think she meant she turned it down as in she turned the temp down which would make the A/C kick on and make the room cooler.

which would explain their "they were cold" excuse.

yeah but it sounds like they don't like the bride!! Who would do that to the BRIDE. Not even considering you; who would do that knowing that the bride wouldn't have a cake???!!! icon_mad.gificon_twisted.gif

Some people can be so unbelievably childish sometimes. Grown adults being so petty. Kudos to you for handling it so well and rising above this.

That's soooooooooo mean of theirs.... I'm with everyone on that if she knew about cake decorating she knew she couldn't do that, so it was done totally on purpose!!! and that's mean!!!! and only babies act like this. I know jealousy. I was kicked out of College because of a jealous teacher, I was studying in the sam ething she studied, and was afraid I would steal her job. In a way I'm glad I didn't finished my College because I wouldn't have met my husband and I wouldn't be a cake decorator! I would've been an art teacher! But anyways it's a really selfish thing to do, especially on the bride's and groom's day!! She never thought about their feelings either!!!

sending hugs and smiles!!!

Cake_Princess, when you turn a Central A/C down, it makes the thermostat go down, and it gets colder- turning it up makes it warmer.......I turned it down to keep it cool- they cut it Off because they were cold.......sorry for the confusion! Maybe my brain is fried after the weekend I had! LOL!

Thanks for making me feel better- honestly when everyone found out what happened, that made the ones who did it look that much dumber- especially b/c she should have known, being a cake decorator and all! Maybe that's why they asked Me to make the cakes, huh? LOL! Thanks you guys, you are great! icon_lol.gif

I'm sorry that happened to you. That was horrible, not only for you, but the bride & groom too! I'm glad you were able to save this cake.
I believe "what goes around, comes around"

LOL, ok I think that's my cue not to try reading these post @ 1 AM ESPECIALLY when I am tired. I obviously forget to bring my brain with me.
