Wedding Cake Tables - Page 3

post #31 of 56
By the way, I live in a very small town and there are only 2 bakeries here. Here the bakers deliver the wedding cakes and decorate the tables. It is not often that we have two weddings that are scheduled for the same time. When I do weddings outside of my town I'm not sure who does what.

In my own wedding cake delivery experiences, 9 times out of 10, the bride has asked if I would decorate the cake table. I tell the brides I will do so IF they have everything they want me to use setting on the table or placed underneath the table, and a note to give me some directions if they want certain things placed in particular spots. Most of the time they just want me to do it how I think it would look best because by that the time of the wedding day it is one less thing they must worry about. I do not charge extra for this service because I think it makes my cakes look better if the presentation is beautiful. If they do not have the supplies they want on the table, I do not decorate it and they will have someone else do it. I also always leave 2 large boxes underneath the table for leftover cake to be placed in and a box for the cake top if they are going to freeze it, along with a congratulations on your wedding card! So basically....always ask the bride what they want and you shouldn't experience too many problems!

I totally agree cindycakes2 ... if the bride supplies all the things she wants for her table, I do not charge to decorate it either ... I would do the decorating for her so that my cake presentation would look it's best ... as far as putting silver/purple with pink/hot pink, I'd go out and purchase the needed supplies out of my own pocket before I"d put those hideous colors together.. that's just common sense to me... and frankly, for someone to put those colors together, you'd have to almost be color blind... I can't imagine any "baker" doing something like that

I think I just witnessed my first virtual food fight!! icon_cool.gif I love this site!
Cake's a powerful food. Cake can actually bring people together. You know... "It's Bill's birthday" "Yeah, I hate that guy." "There's cake in the conference room." "Well, I should say hello."-Jim Gaffigan

BigEasy Cakes: SmoothC may be a newbie, but her comments are as offensive as her photos. You opened your mouth.........now swallow!!

Aren't you a newbie as well. I am a newbie and I do not post alot because of just what happen pertaining to this particular post and comments made. I think your comments about her photos are offensive. Everyone comes to this site for advice, encouragement, and ideas. I am sure it takes alot of courage to post pictures of the cakes you have done, knowing that thousands of people are looking at them and forming their own opinion.

Pumpkin823, thanks for your comment. I didn't get offended, not even a tiny bit. Everyone has their own opinions. Like I stated before I wasn't trying to offend ANYONE I was just speaking of My pasted experiences...THAT'S ALL.
post #38 of 56
You're correct smoothc in that everyone is entitled to their opinion... you are a newbie; however, coming to a cake decorating website and making a statement like you did with almost everyone here being a baker or if they are here for ideas and/or to associate with others who do cake baking/decorating, you did step on toes and I feel an apology is in order... you stated before you were sorry, I've accepted that as an apology and I feel we need to move on beyond this .. happy decorating!! icon_smile.gif

icon_eek.gificon_confused.gif Wow. All the carnage.... I think everyone involved should apologize. Hey, opinions aren't always pleasant (I work at a grocery store bakery, and believe me, in the past others opinions HERE used to upset me), but they belong to the person that stated them. Turning on her and throwing personal attacks at her and digs about her profession isn't any more mature or ok. In my opinion (which you may or may not like), I think both parties were pretty offensive. Reaction can be just as bad as action, and it can often be a reaction to an opinion that drives people away from a site. It's been stated how this site is like a community. Well, I have neighbors that I wish to heck they would keep their personal life personal, but I won't be fighting them over it.

No kidding!! Ask a simple question and look what happened! I am meeting with my bride this week and would LOVE to have some nice ideas on what to do with her table. I assume that I will be decorating the table at this point until I hear otherwise.

I'm looking for something simple and elegant.

TIA!!

Calejo, as I stated before, I accepted her apology and it is over .. now others need to let it go too ... I don't feel I owe her an apology as I did no personal attack on her .. I stated that this is a cake decorating/bakers website .. she's the one that attacked people on here that are "BAKERS" ... as stated before, I've let this go and suggest others do the same icon_smile.gif

Wow! I go away & more ugly posts get made!!! What is wrong w/ people who comes on CC & blow up the place! smoothc you need to go back & read what you wrote... that was offensive to a lot of people including me!!!

When I started cake decorating I learned the techniques.. then learned to bake better... now I've learned how to decorate a table & to be a florist!!! I'm sure there's other things I do too but at this time I can't think straight because I am still in awe at this post!

Cake Decorator's have many, many, many titles under their aprons!!! To say what you said through your experience didn't make any sense!! If you were truely a cake decorator you wouldn't have said such a thing!

If you have ever seen any of the cakes on CC you would know that most of us decorate tables & backgrounds etc & do a beautiful job!!!

You are the reason some newbies are afraid to make posts. You come onto CC like a ball of fire & think everything is ok to say. NOT. You give newbies a bad name~ Nuff SAID!!!!!!

Too all you Newbies..... we don't blame you for someone like smoothc. I would be upset if an old member said what she said! thumbs_up.gif
