bride trying to say I did cake wrong flavor - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Hi msmeg! I'm so sorry about the mishap. I'm sure once you make an anniversary tier top, she will be fine and in fact, she/or mother of bride might even apoligolize for putting you through all the mess of confusion. You did all that you were responsible for and that is all that matters. If it is stated on the contract that once the cake is delivered and set up than you should clear yourself of any conflict or interest or any other confusion about the cake/s. But the bride would have to sign the contract agreeing to if any thing happens to the cake, i.e. the cutting and removing the anniversary tier or whatever other trimmings etc. then it become the bride's responsible of apointing someone to cut the cake and have another person hand out the cake so therefore, you are totally clear from all of the mess and confusion. It is stressfull enough making and delivering and assembling the cake and you do not need any extra baggages from the bride or anyone else at the reception hall. I would have done the same of making and given the bride another top tier cake for the 1st anniversary cause you always want to keep a good reputation for yourself. icon_smile.gif

Sometimes there are so many people "helping" with the reception, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.......things disappear. I worked with one lady who lost not only her left over cake but all the left over food .........to the night crew at the facility.

I sometimes think the MOB is worst than the bride. Then there are the grooms who are worst than the bride. One "off the wall groom" I worked with wanted the decorations on the cake to match the wallpaper of the hotel lobby......he also asked for a glass of milk during the tasting meeting.

I guess it takes all kinds to make up this world..........

I always tell the bride/groom.........have fun.....accept whatever happens and remember.........it's flour, eggs, water.......nothing really to get upset about.

I am so sorry that the bride is giving you so much trouble. What a shame that she can't find the cake top.. Probably a mix-up, but NOT your fault!! Very kind of you to help her out in this case. Kudos to you!!!

I decided our wedding cake top wouldn't be good a year later esp. after it was in the trunk of the car for two days before we got it home and another three days in the fridge. We just ate that one (most of it). I had made a second wedding cake for a family reception the following week and I saved that cake topper, but I told him that will be our one month anniversary cake and I would not be saving it for a whole year. I promised to make us a gorgeous anniversary cake either identical to or different from the one we had for the wedding (but smaller!) icon_smile.gif

Hang in there!!

Boy, I'm sure sorry to hear about this mess. You did good offering the anniversary cake and she ought to appreciate that, tho I doubt it. This is an example of why I don't want to do wedding cakes. I just don't want to deal with witchy brides and their mothers. Not saying they are all that way but the stress gets to some of them and they get it in their heads that this cake, tho important, is so critical to their special day. Like I try to remember don't sweat the small stuff. It's a cake for pity sake and if it's not perfect like the airbrushed plaster ones in the magazines who is going to know at that reception? Geesh!! It's sad when something like this can ruin a wedding day for the bride. As for the grooms the more they butt out the better. LOL Sorry, this just strikes a cord with me after doing a great cake for my ingrate niece in October.
