Yep she hated it...

post #1 of 160
Thread Starter 
I just got home from one of the worst experiences of my life. I took a cake that was a very last minute order to the lady who ordered it. She didn't care what style but wanted the smallest sheetcake I had. So I had to make it in my 8 x 12 because I couldn't find my 7 x 11 icon_sad.gif . (I didn't charge her for my mistake). I decided that I'd do a bow in GP because they dry fast. The only thing she did want was chocolate. I got to the door.....she hurried me in...looked at the cake and took it from me...yelled for her DH to come and look then THREW the cake on the table...cracking the bow because it jumped up icon_sad.gif . She told me that was the most amateur looking cake she had ever seen and she was NOT paying me for a POOPY (not what she said) looking cake. Her DH looked at me while my eyes filled up with tears....I turned...left the cake and took no money....now what do I do but cry? The GAWD awful cake is in my pictures but I am seriously thinking about removing it.

Thanks for listening

OMG! The problem was hers not yours tonight! That cake is very very cute! Much better than anything she would have gotten anywhere else! The writing is nice too! She was obviously having a bad day and took it out on you and your cake! Sorry this happened to you!

I'm just sick after reading your post. I'm so sorry that you had to deal with that lunatic. My DH and DD agree that it's an adorable cake (especially for last minute!!!). What is WRONG with this world that people think it's O.K. to be so awful??? I'm sorry, and I hope that nothing like this ever happens to you again!!

Oh H*** no! That cake is adorable. There's absolutely nothing wrong or amateurish about it - it's smooth, the writing is cool, the bow is AWESOME. It was seriously HER problem and NOT yours! She's CRAZY.

CRAZY.

Don't remove it and forget about her!

There was nothing wrong with your cake. Even if she did hate it she should not have treated you that way! She was wrong! That just makes me boil. It amazes me how people think it's okay to treat others badly. Big hug to you, you hold your head high and leave that photo right where it is! thumbs_up.gif

Ok I can't hold this in after the day I've had Christi girl that ***** has problems! She's freakin psycho if she thinks that's a ***** cake. I'd mail her an invoice or mail it to her husband tell her she was under a verbal contract and she received her cake and she needs to pay for it. If she doesn't let it slide this last time. And from now on, no more last minute orders unless paid in full BEFORE you turn on the oven or buy any ingredients.

I love it! I think it's beautiful! icon_biggrin.gif

Wow...if that's an amateur looking cake she must be getting some pretty exceptional cakes somewhere! I have to tell you that that cake looks very very nice to me. It is well done and it looks to me like you put plenty of time and thought into it.....it's hard to believe it was a last minute order. Can you make beautiful bows and flowers like that at the last minute? icon_wink.gif You are talented.

It is a very nice cake. It deserved better than to be broken by some crabby lady who can't appreciate something great when she sees it. I bet she ate it. I am appalled that she treated you so poorly and it amazes me that, while she had no specifics except chocolate, she felt compelled to criticize what you had so thoughtfully created for her on short notice.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL CAKE! GREAT JOB!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif Please smile and try to feel pride here because you should...truly.

No Way!!!! I can't believe you left with out taking the cake. People like that don't deserve your yummy cake!!

I would have turned into the cake nazi---NO CAKE FOR YOU!!!!


I like the cake and really liked your bow. It looks shimery. Did you dust it with anything?

Screw her! tapedshut.gif I know that's mean but your cake was great. I'm just starting and I wish I could put something like that together. Next time let her go to the "gross"ery store icon_lol.gif

Great Job!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that cake and I am being completely honest! How awful of her to do that to you! What did her husband do/say??

I would have picked up the cake and walked out and left her with nothing! If she couldn't at least pay you for the ingredients and your time. What a B(*^#&*^@)(ch!

Who is this person? Do you have to see her daily or a relative?

OMG - this for some reason has peeved me! icon_mad.gif
Send her a bill!

I can't even believe how NASTY she is!!! Your cake is sweet and she should be ashamed of her awful behavior! I am sorry this happened to you. icon_sad.gif

What a horrible thing to do! There's really no excuse for her behavior. Please write her off as one of those loonies running around that you had the misfortune to run across. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the cake, BTW. Don't remove it!

That lady must be a crack addict and hasn't had any today. I thought the cake was cute. If someone had ordered one form me at he alst minute she would NOT have gotten a gumpaste bow that is for sure!!!

She should be ashamed of herself and just know that the universe has a way of cosmically fixing itself and she has hers coming!!!

Put her name on a black ball list for sure.
