Who puts their FINGER into a wedding cake?!!!

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
The heat at this wedding was hot so the flowers couldn't be put onto the cake until after the ceremony (which was under a 100 year old oak tree up on the hillside in flowing grass... .sooooo pretty!)

So the photographer didn't take the pic until the reception had started... and already the flowers on the edge had wilted....

But someone had STUCK THEIR FINGER INTO THE FRONT OF THE CAKE!

WHO DOES THAT?!

If you don't know what fondant is, at least poke it in the back, RIGHT SMACK IN THE FRONT! I am sickend each time I look at it.

Oh well, the cake came out perfect! Everyone was sooo impressed.

The 3 hour drive up the windy (what is the difference between windy as in blowing wind and windy as in the road was super not straight?) road. I had to drive most of it at 15mph since the road was so curvey, but the view was spectacular! So I didn't mind at all. The brides family owned this 3000 acre (not a typo, 3000!) cattle ranch back to the civil war. The reception was in a 100 year old barn. It was AMAZING! The best part was that the bride and groom are committed Christians and the whole thing was an amazing tribute to who God Is. My husband is more friends with the groom than I am with the Bride (I did the cake for free), but I was crying for most of the ceremony even though I don't hardly know them. I can't emphasize how cool and special this wedding was.

If you want to see some awesome photography and a different view of the cake check out the photographers blog. INCREDIBLE!!!!

You'd be surprised who puts their finger in a cake. EVERYONE!

Most people would say 'kids', but that is absolutely NOT true. There are just as many adults who can't resist grabbing at the cake!

Probably some little kid did that. My brother used to do that all the time when he was little (we are the caboose of the grandkids and most of my cousin's all married when we were 3-icon_cool.gif. Anyway, until he was about 5 he would do that but always in the back thankfully.
However, when he got married everyone who got his finger in their cake all went up to his cake and put theirs in as well and this was before the photographer got pics of the cake too. Karma.

The bride told me it was probably a kid, and I told her probably NOT! Usually it is some adult who does it! But seriously, did you see how big that hole is right in front of the cake?!!!

LOL Unfortunately, there's a lot of truth in that statement.

My DH's cousin has five children and when they attend parties here, they usually do it which infuriates me, but I leaned years ago after correcting their eldest child to not even bother saying anything anymore. After correcting her twice for 'tasting the icing off the cake), the next time I caught her I also caught her mother doing it with her! How do you correct the kid when the parent does it too? I sort of made a joke about it, but they still do that, even at their own functions.

I'm just sorry I couldn't get closer to the cake for one of the son's communion when she served her Sylvia Weinstock cake. I would have ripped a little tiny piece of fondant off "just to taste"! (Consider it all my pent up anger over the years! icon_lol.gif )

A child or a rude/stupid adult. Sorry someone did that. You did a great job.

little kids under the age of 4 .... adults over the age of 18!

Everyone between 4 and 18 is scared of getting in trouble for touching the cake. Under age 4, they haven't learned this fear yet. Dumb a$$ adults just don't give a sh--- , uh I mean, give a darn! icon_rolleyes.gif

Once I was working @ a telemarketing place and someone brought a really nice chocolate cake. By the afternoon someone had torn out a chunk of that cake with their hand. You could even see the outline of the fingers. icon_mad.gif So yeah...it's not always a kid.

I think I can up this sort of situation. A friend of mine was getting married and wanted 500 cupcakes and a 6 inch cake to cut. Everything was going well except the day was 115 degrees and it was an outside wedding. I had the 6 inch in the kitchen trying to keep it cool when the groom's mother comes in and puts her whole hand on top of the cake to PICK IT UP!!! I caught her in the act and asked her what the he** was she doing? She said she didn't think it was a real cake and just wanted to touch it.

I wanted to TOUCH HER!!!! Needless to say, the cake was completely destroyed and couldn't be fixed.

At my brother's bday party last year, all of the kids were touching the fondant and picking the toys up off the cake. I saw FINGERNAIL MARKS in the fondant, and almost threw up.

Needless to say, I wasn't a happy camper and either were they after I got through talking to them...heh.

What pissed me off the most, was that the parents were all just standing around letting them do that! If I caught my kid doing that, I would totally freak out. It's just baffling to me that so many people, children and adults alike, don't see a problem with doing things like that.

It's rude, disrespectful and unsanitary!

I'm sorry someone did that to your cake, but regardless, it still looked wonderful icon_smile.gif

Here's one to make you feel better...

It was only a family cake, so no one else was affected.

For my daughter's first birthday, I had put her cake on the table, still on my flat turntable. I was in the kitchen cooking the meal for the party. I looked over, and she had climbed up on the chair and was turning the turntable. I thought that was cute...but it turns out her tongue was out, licking the cake while she turned the turntable. By the time I noticed, she had worn a groove in the buttercream.

That's a scream!!! LOL

I had a similar birthday cake mishap...my daughter was turning 2 or 3, and I had set the cake out on the dinner table, while preparing dinner as well. I caught her dipping her fingers in the frosting, and told her I didn't want her little hands on that cake again.

My husband comes and gets me out of the kitchen a few minutes later...to find that she was leaning forward - with hands carefully folded behind her back - taking nice little nibbles on the side of the cake. OMIGOSH, I about snorted trying not to laugh out loud!!!

I guess I should have been more specific, huh?? icon_biggrin.gif

Homemade-Goodies, I remember last year another member had the same exact 'problem'. That's something you really don't forget - even if you didn't see it personally, it sort of leaves a distinct mental image. lol

These people who don't mind their children going over and touching cakes deserve to have people go over to their tables at restuarants, or their plates at friends' houses, and have said people pick up and look at their dinner and then place it back on the plate and walk away. Some of them even deserve to have said people taste their dinner, return it to the plate and walk away. What's the difference?

To this day it's still one of my pet peeves and whenever the cake is served at my home and my DH's cousins are there, I basically don't let the cake out of my site.

I recently had a bday party for my daughter. The kids were fine except for one. She kept saying she wanted a cupcake and I kept telling her it wasn't time. I was serving the kids their food and she said she wanted a cupcake and I told her she would have one later. icon_twisted.gif Finally later I was getting the kids drinks and I see her standing in her chair and reaching over to get a cupcake. icon_confused.gificon_eek.gif Luckily I get there in time & have to remove them completely from the table. I know.....I should have got her mother. Well, her mom was sitting there the whole time like 2 feet away watching. icon_mad.gif
