I have forgotten a cake order one time and I felt horrible for it. I had been sick for a few days and it just totally slipped my mind. I apologized to the lady and she said she understood that things happen but she also said she would never use me again. I was so embarrassed. I will never let that happen again if it's within my control. I will make sure (sick or not) to always check my schedule and double check my schedule so that I will NEVER have to feel like that again!!!!
Hi Nana! I'm Anna! :-)
There was a lady who picked out a wedding cake. I told her I would need a deposit.She left with no money down and I never heard from her again....until her wedding day when she called wanting to know where her cake was. I felt bad that her wedding was ruined. But she never gave me a deposit and never contacted me again after picking out a cake. It was very strange.
I nearly forgot my sons birthday cake.
We moved into our new house 1 week before his birthday and we were busy decorating and unpacking.
The kitchen was an absolute mess and needed a complete makeover, and for some silly reason I decided to invite some family round for his birthday rather than go out somewhere so the kitchen needed to be redecorated asap.
We had just finished the kitchen the day before his birthday and I suddenly realised I hadn't got him a cake and I hadn't got anything in to make one.
I rushed to the local supermarket and they didn't have anything I needed! So I had to improvise! And had to have it baked and decorated really quick as it was getting late. I thought it looked awful. My son loved it though!
I can sympathise, but on a smaller scale.
At my husbands work they have set up a 'cupcake club' and asked me to sort them out with cuppies once a month. Trouble is, they choose the date each month and it is invariably when I'm most busy. Twice now I've been up at stupid o'clock waiting for ganache to cool or trying to work out how the hell to make SMBC without waking the whole family up because it completely slipped my mind that they were due their cakes!
As for big cakes, I've not forgotten one yet, but I have been so close to the mark on pick-up times that it's not funny. Why is it that a board ribbon WILL NOT go on straight if you're in a rush?
