Who puts their FINGER into a wedding cake?!!! - Page 4

That does it - I'm gonna construct an acrylic "cake fort" that's been wired with enough voltage to give anyone who dares touch a nice little zap and rent it out icon_twisted.gif ...well, maybe just the plain fort... icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

Would your electric fence have a warning sign, or would you prefer to just let them be surprised?

icon_lol.gif Warning sign, but no one reads them anyway, at least not until after the damage to the cake has been done icon_rolleyes.gif . Sighhhhhh....well, since I'm not interested in a lawsuit as a result of my avenging all those poked cakes out there, I'd better not! And before anyone thinks I mean to electrocute Uncle Sidney, my prototype would have the kind of tiny shock you get from sliding in your socks on carpet, not hitting someone with paddles icon_wink.gif

I was thinking you would want something a little more than static. People love to dare each other. "Here, you touch it first". It might become an attraction like those static balls in the science museums that don't shock, but make your hair stand on end. Or perhaps touching the grocery cart, then your husband.
Nope, it needs a little more juice to it. We want them to always remember this special day and the cake. icon_lol.gif

Well, for a less aggressive method, we could have a small talking sensor, so that when anything passes beyond a certain point it would clearly tell them to "step away from the cake".

Cheeseball,
For your new cake protection invention, I would like to request that you add a force shield that bounces the DJ's sound back to him without the sound ever nearing the cake.
You could also add a little something special for the venue person who wickedly "helps" a cake fall over. Just to help them remember not to ever do that again.

You would be rich. icon_lol.gif

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif My Mom and I were cracking up over blowing the cake poker clear across the room, but my politically correct side says "better stick with static shock" (mostly 'cause I don't want to hear the outrage from people who didn't realize I was joking - twisted, granted, but just joking) Hey! I just remembered posting about the cake poker I had a while ago; the woman with the huge boobies that I seriously considering poking, "just to see if they were real" icon_twisted.gif

I had a very delicate and intricate lace piece that I kept on display for years. One customer came in with her 1 1/2" long nails and decided to tap on it to see it it was real. Needless to say it was destroyed. And all she had to say after her blunder was a giggling "Oooops!". I was not pleased but with great effeort managed to keep myself from throttling her. Yes THIS is the type of person that would poke a hole in the front of your fondant cake.

I recently had a DJ do just that to me while I was setting up the cake! I was shocked! Turned out he was the owner of the company and thought nothing of tasting the icing because he said "it smelled good" . I didn't even know what to say, but I stood there fuming and repiping the design he had smeared. He said he thought I'd just stick some flowers there?!!

Kelly,
I don't see how you were able to keep your composure. It would have been tempting to pop his hand. (He would probably be the kind to claim assault.) What a total lack of respect for you and your cake. It wasn't his cake to taste. If any marks show up in the photos, don't hesitate to tell the Bride who made them. I doubt the DJ would have appreciated you messing with all his equipment, or knocking a speaker over.

I have decided to look for someone I can trust to act as a cake guard for my daughter's upcoming wedding. Someone who doesn't have to attend the actual ceremony, and wouldn't be shy to tell people, "Don't even think about it." icon_lol.gif

I think I would have just walked over to his equipment and pushed a button or two, because "I just thought it looked so purty." icon_wink.gif

"oooooh! oooooooh! oooooooh! Pick me! Pick me!!" she said, as she jumped up and down, wildly waiving her arms!

My line to the DJ would probably have been closer to ......

WHAT THE FREAKIN' HELL HAVE YOU DONE TO MY CAKE, YOU FREAKIN' DUMBA$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(And I probably wouldn't have said "freakin'" either!)

Okay Indydebi, lets see. I know you would absolutely perfect for the job. According to the atlas, it would be x number of miles x $4.00 per gallon = icon_surprised.gif plus your normal cake guard charge = icon_surprised.gif . I will definately put you on the "alternate" list. icon_lol.gif

It would be no vacation for you. Are you kidding, there is no way I would waste all your talents on just cake guard. I would have a list a mile long. How about keeping children under 6 out of the sanctuary and reception?
How do you handle difficult people? I know a few that will be coming that can try the patience of Job.

Is your stomach up to a lot of Mexican food?
Did I mention this would be at the end of July? It gets a tad hot and humid here, since we are near the Louisiana state line. I know... I could take you on a swamp tour to see the alligators after the wedding.
Hmm..., since out youngest daughter has moved out for grad school, I have a empty room... without a bed. How are you on a blow-up mattress?

Just a few things to think about. -Debbie B. icon_biggrin.gif

On my first stacked cake this past weekend someone jammed a finger in it. After that, my mom stood guard and practically tackled an 8 year old as her finger slowly moved toward it. All I heard was DON"T TOUCH THE CAKE!!!! and a loud boom. Even then we still had to chase people away.

You did a great job on the cake-sorry about some idiot's finger! The photographer was AMAZING-I looked through all of the pics and swore I was there. Thanks for sharing-he highlighted you cake very nicely and you wouldn't know there was a finger mark in that one! thumbs_up.gif
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.
