Spiteful People

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I made a cowboy boot cake for my husbands office. He works with 3 IT guys, that helps him out a lot with good deals on computer stuff. so he asked me to make a cake as a little "thank you". He took it to work today, and they guys just loooved the taste of creamy vanilla and fresh buttercream. they also loved the design, but the women on the other hand were critizing the "brown frosting". "I never saw brown frosting, bla bla bla".

First of all, you can buy chocolate frosting in every grocery store, second of all I made the BC myself and colored it with brown food color in different shades, because my hubby is allergic to chocolate and third of all THEY HAVEN'T EVEN TASTED THE CAKE OR THE FROSTING!

They guys were very defentive of me and the cake and told them to keep quiet and that they lost their chance of having a piece...

How can people be so spiteful? i worked my butt of for that cake, so my hubby has a nice thank you gift for his co-workers. that makes me very very sad icon_sad.gif

That cake was BEAUTIFUL. What spiteful little witches. They will get theirs. It looks so good, I would have thought it was chocolate. You did a GREAT job. Good for the guys for sticking up for you!

Don't give their pettiness a second thought. You did a great job and you know the guys appreciated it. Ah, I'm so glad I don't work in an office job anymore icon_smile.gif

First, you cake is wonderful! Very fun, and the colors are perfect.

My mother used to always tell me that people like that are just jealous and must have miserable lives to be so nasty. I don't know if it's true or not but it always made me feel better. I wouldn't even give it another thought. The cake was for the IT folks and if they liked it, that's all that matters!

thank you so much for your nice comments. I know that I am not perfect in cake decorating and that I still have a long way to go, but that comments were pretty unfair and hurtful.

but you are right, as long the people like it for whom I made that cake, I am happy icon_smile.gif

Well the cake is just great!! You did an awesome job on it !!! And puhleeeesee!! Like they haven't ever seen brown icing before... yes, they have and yes, they're being petty ... they're jealous that your husband has such a talented wife!! I'd make a really girlie girl cake in pink/white/pastel colors with flowers and send that up there to get a response out of them!! icon_biggrin.gif

They are just jealous they didn't think of a nice "thank you" like that and that they couldn't fathom to make something so beautiful. You're cake is so cool. You did an excellent job of blending the browns and I love the design you put around the sun!!! You should be very proud!!!

Sorry to hear about that icon_sad.gif Unfortunately, women can be like that...guys are more easy going, but girls seem to compete with each other. It's really sad. I personally think that your cake rocked!!! They were most likely just jealous that the guys were ooing and ahing over your cake.

Hugs,

Denise

I love your cake. You did a wonderful job. Who cares what they had to say. Who you made the cake for loved it and that's all that matters.

Your cake is beautiful, and I'm jealous too. How dare you bring that beautiful cake and get raves and compliments like that! LOL

Aren't women wonderful...I'll bet they show up with a treat for the guys too, to try to keep up! If you make another cake to take to the office, I would definitely keep it on the masculine side, and not try to please the witches! Janice

Based on experience, people who are this way are the ones who are so clueless and probably who can't even boil water..They hate what they see because deep inside them they like it, they're just too darn proud to admit that they like it and that they are so useless in the kitchen. To some people, if they give a compliment, they are acknowledging that they cannot do anything better than what you are capable of doing.. These airheads did not even pay a cent and right away they cannot think of anything good to say.. let them make cake , then critisize it. let's see how they feel. You did a really good job.. sadly they are just very incompetent..

Those (ahem) ladies are jealous that they couldn't get a piece of cake. So they had to put it down psychologically so in their own minds they didn't want a piece of that ugly old cake. You did the right thing by sending something special as a thank you.

some people have nothing better to do than make useless and downright mean comments about other people's work, and it must have been particularly easy for them to do this to you since they didn't have to say it to your face! they didn't pay for the cake, they weren't being forced to eat it, so their opinions should be of no consequence to you. it's just really poor manners to criticize a gift. don't let it get you down.
