wow, so many scarey stories here! I never even considered taking photo's at the place of delivery. I can tell you now we will be taking plenty. Thanks for opening our eyes before we have one of these disasters.

I delivered a cake I made for a friend's daughter's birthday. It was a large 3 tier cake with lots of animal figures on it and it took me forever to make. I was very proud of it. I had to work the day of the party, so I drove it an hour away the night before (and largely pregnant, too) to her house. It was perfect. The next day at work, I got a call from her asking how to fix it. Fix it? What's wrong with it? She said that the top tier fell onto the second and the third was starting to squish. I had no words. There was NO WAY this could have happened with the sps system I was using. I was a mess. I found out later that her dog "may" have jumped on the table or something. Can't really fix it at that point. I appologize over and over and told her I wouldn't cash her check but there was nothing I could do about it. I am afraid it may have damaged our friendship icon_sad.gif

I'm sorry for everyone's horror stories - but thank you for sharing them! None of these things ever crossed my mind! Now I can be prepared!

On thinking about leaving a cake alone at a venue, just a thought, shouldn't someone at the venue be signing off the safe delivery of the cake onto an order form - saying 'received by'................. signature and NAME IN CAPITALS............................ and date and time of receipt. In this way regardless of forgetting having photographic evidence of safe setting up of your cake, a manager at the venue is then now responsible for the safe keeping of your creation, by signature saying it was received and set up and in good order. Order forms from a customer need to be confirmed that the order is correct, as well as the order signed for. That would solve the problem, wouldn't it? Obviously photographic evidence would help if there was a query. Even a photograph taken on a mobile phone would help. Keep a disposable camera in the emergency repair kit too, just in case.

Sounds like she wasn't a good friend and you are better off without her. Most likely it was something she or her dog or someone moving the table did, you apologized and didn't cash the check, that should have settled the situation.

In my experience, very few venue managers are willing to sign off on a cake. I've had a wedding planner or two agree to it but usually it's just me & the florist in the hall.

Good point, why would they? What are you gonna do walk out with your cake if they refuse? Why would they take the responsibility of babysitting your cake and being responsible if something that they have no control over happens.
