oh my gosh i have never seen so much icing in my life! I dont do wedding cakes...I am just starting out...but I agree with others...it has been fairly obvious to me so far when a cake is not baked completely...I am so sorry that this happened to your wedding cake.

is it possible that it wasn't undercooked but that

she used way too much simple syrup to moisten the cake and ended up w/ mush?

That is ALOT of icing..and the cake looks a bit raw in the first pic. Not good.

Is that center area in the pic 1 raw!! You can actually see that it looks like pudding... OMG, I am in shock. I have never, never, never seen anything like that.

The icing is thicker than the layer of cake.....

How did you get the pic to come up?

I know I have had cakes come out not done and I rebaked them. You can't hide an underbaked cake under tons of icing. It just makes it worse. Just tell her what you told us. That the top was good but the other two tiers were not. She should give you an adjustment and if she feels she needs to charge you then she should only charge for the top. I would think she should give you all your money back since your reception was partially ruined by not having a cooked cake.

I think the first picture is the most telling....the others (aside from the 3rd also showing an insane amount of icing) I find it hard to see anything for certain (if that makes sense)........I think its good that you kept a sample of the cake so that she can really see it in person.

Good luck

OH WOW icon_eek.gif - You could certainly tell that the cakes weren't cooked thoroughly especially the bottom cake. It looked so dense, like a cheesecake slathered w/ a gob of frosting...ewwww thumbsdown.gif

lol that's what I was going to say too- the cake part on that one layer could be the crust of a cheesecake thumbsdown.gif
Well good to have pics and live sample. Proof is certainly in the pudding here (groan, I know I know that was bad lol icon_rolleyes.gif )

The grooms cake is hard to tell from the pics but the reason there is more icing in the center is because the cake was starting to cave in so they tried to remedy it with more frosting.
The red velvet wasn't too too bad but it was really dense and it didn't taste good. Definitely not anything like it did in the tasting.
The bottom layer more than speaks for itself.

I have so tried to find the humor in this but I was so looking forward to the cake...and leftover cake. Oh well the look on my now husband's face when he saw the Yankees themed cake was worth it.

icon_eek.gif Ok I'm sorry but I'm back... icon_eek.gif I just keep reading and reading again icon_eek.gif ...there is no possible way that she did not know there was something wrong with the cake.....I'm not saying that I haven't had my mishapps, I have, I haven't even had to cut into the cake to see how it baked....I can just tell from seeing the top how it's baked...I can't tell you how many times my mom's said "cindy it's fine it baked fine" and I cut into it and it's not cooked properly....she's like how do you know it wasn't baked properly?........I'm sorry I dont' believe it....she knew...she had to have known...she probably just didn't want to invest more $$$ into it because it would take from her profit........

I'm sorry this sounds harsh....but I don't believe it....

Thanks. The irony in this is that I didn't worry once about the cake. The photography on the other hand I freaked about. I was very close to cancelling my photographer but didn't. The photos came out amazing and the cake...

congrats on your wedding! Your pictures are beautiful!

I am so sorry about your cake.
I am going to have to agree with Aztec9206(Cindy).
I don't see how she couldn't have known that the cakes weren't done, the extra icing tells it all, she tried to cover up where the cake were sinking.
Give her a call and talk to her, show her the pictures and some of the cake.
I would expect a full refund, I really don't see an excuse for what happened.
Let us know how it turns out.
