Somebody stole the cake

post #1 of 96
Thread Starter 
icon_cry.gif I just have to vent, it really amazes me the lows people will stoop too. I did a wedding cake for a co-workers daughter, as she is family too I offered to keep and store the top layer for the new couple. I wrapped in very carefully in protective layers and kept it frozen for them. I brought the cake, still frozen in a special box I found at micheals with cute pics of cakes and cupakes decorating it. I also had found a mini figurine that was the same as the full size precious monment figure they used for thier topper. I brought it to work at the mom's request and placed it the cooler in the lunch room and when she went to get it just now it was gone! I'm tempted to search the cubicles for a big red cake box! I actually asked the security guard to keep and eye out but we believe it's gone for good. Really, although i am miffed i feel worse for the anniversary couple. I will make them a new one tonight, but it just isn't the same. I will never bring another cake to work again for a co-worker to take home what an unfixable disaster. At least they don't blame me, but the mom was nearly in tears when she came to find me. She had gone into the break room earlier today and had peeked at the cake to see the topper. grrr, but lesson learned

HOW TERRIBLE icon_sad.gif

I'm so sorry that that happened. I sure hope that you find out who did it and that they apologize for their actions...

Some people!

OMG! They took the whole cake? The gall of some people.

I would have security search the cubbies for it since this is theft! I mean if they stole the cake from the wedding you would call the police right?

I would post a huge note on the fridge stating that unless the cake was returned or a suitable explanitation was given, I was going to involve the police in the theft of personal property.

Just my humble opinion (I have been at the mercy of work fridge theives too many times!!) icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

"TEMPTED to search"? WHOA!! Do it! Seriously. There is nothing more you can do than have a security guard "keep a eye out"? There has to be a little further level you can take this to...... You poor thing. I am so sorry.............

Seriously! As much as I LOVE to eat cake - I'd never steel one! There is either some one who must be "starving" (check all dieters you know of) or they are just hateful!!!

I just almost can't believe some one would or could be so ridiculous!

I am truely sorry this happened to you and the mom.

I'm not surprised because thefts from the lunchroom fridge have been common occurrences at most places I have worked at. And we're not just talking about Christmas hams received as gifts from clients, we're also talking about sack lunches and leftovers for crying out loud! Who in their right mind would steal someone's leftovers? Yes, there are some pretty low class types out there. Hope the culprit is found out and FIRED!

That's crazy - some people will do anything!

I worked for a summer at a plant when I was in high school where everything would disappear out of the fridge before lunch time - especially cake and/or goodies. After having my stuff stolen a few times I baked a batch of brownies with the added bonus of chopped up exlax chunks in it and put them in the fridge as usual. Well, they were gone by lunch time. I didn't work near the bathroom so I don't know who ate them but nothing was stolen for the rest of the summer!

Anyhow - my point is - maybe do the same thing. I know it won't help what happened this time but maybe it will keep it from being done again in the future!

Un-freaking-believable!!!! icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif I would be furious! Trust is such a big deal for me, if I didn't find out who took it I would always be wondering who I could and couldn't trust in the office. As a side night though I'll tell you what happened to our top tier. We were not leaving for our honeymoon until two days after our wedding. On the evening after our wedding we were at home and packing and my DH says he thinks he'll have a piece of the leftover cake, I say get me one too. Five minutes later he appears with two perfectly cut wedges of cake. They look nothing like how the cake was cut at the reception so I ask him where he got them from. He says from that cute little cake that they sent home with us. He had cut the two pieces from the top tier. Our cake didn't last 24 hours let alone a year. Every year on our anniversary I order a six inch cake in the same flavors as our original and we have a good laugh over it. icon_lol.gif I'm sure that the new cake you make for them will open up a new tradtion for them also!! Good Luck with finding your crook and sorry this happened to you!!

So did you find it in someones cube? I think you should make another one...spike (dont) it heavily with exlax* hopefully it will get stolen. I guarantee you they will never steal anything again**!

*disclaimer: the above i would never do and do not promote anyone else ever doing...even if it is to teach a valuable lesson. Just had to get a chuckle. icon_wink.gif

**wait wait! Better yet - put a sign on the fridge and say that you need it returned b/c it was a 10 year old cake that was not supposed to be eaten and if someone does they will become VIOLENTLY ill. Tell them to leave it in your cube when everyone is gone or just return it to the fridge (so no questions asked).

This past Spring I lost a jacket that I swore I brought to work. Since it was warm when I came to work, I usually just carried it inside and wore it to go home in the evening when it was cooler.

I really thought it was stolen because I couldn't find it anywhere. We have cameras inside the doors of our suite so I talked to the security guy and told him what day I lost it. He looked back at the footage and showed me that I wasn't carrying the coat by the time I got to the suite. We went back the night before and saw that I wore it out so it wasn't taken while at work. Maybe I dropped it when I got out of the car or something. Bummer!

If you have security guys you probably have cameras somewhere. It's not like someone is going to put this box of cake in their purse as they walk out. Ask to look at the footage for the night, surely you can see a big red box being carried out. Then you can take appropriate action.

So sorry this happened to you! icon_cry.gif

Edited to add: Unless they ate it at their cubie. An entire 6" by yourself? Hope it makes them sick! icon_wink.gif
