A lady i use to work with asked my to do a 3-d pirate ship for her sons 3rd birthday to serve 30-35 ppl. she called the night before to tell me what time she would be picking ti up and asked if she could just put it in the back of the car or should she bring someone. i suggested she bring someone with to hold it. i was up all night working on this cake because i ske is a "Little Miss Perfect" so i really wanted to do my best well she was to pick it up at 10am i finished before 9am by 10:30 i layed down. finally at 1pm her friend came for the cake. the lad had her son with to hold the cake. my husband said he looked about 14-15 and after banging the cake bord off of the window panel 3 times he decided to put his seat back and then they had to pick up the pizza yet..... anyway later that night when i listened to my messages i had one from the lady who ordered the cake screaming and cursing that because the cake wasnt packaged it fell apart on the way there and now she has no cake for the party and she she was coming over for her money back. it was already going on 9pm so i figured she wasnt gonna show. i thought she would be over sunday but didnt show or call. she called yesterday nice and calm and left another message saying she wants her money back and to sell a cake for 50.00 the way i did and blah, blah, blah..... I have not called her back yet but i do pan on telling her the cake was fine when it left here and i am not responsible for what happened to it on the way there. and i dont package any of my 3-d cakes but i really dont know how that would have helped it from fallling apart. she didnt mention exactly what it looked like just that she wasnt going to have a cake for the party. am i wrong to think im not responsible for it after it was picked up? Im up loading the pic in my gallery because i cant get it to load here.
