FINALLY got a backbone!!!! (Super Long Vent) - Page 2

post #16 of 115
so after the fact, this story is hysterical!!!! certainly not so while it was transpiring but I would not have been able to hold my composure for more than a minute! Your cakes came out great!
I remember the original thread and it sounds like this was a headache all the way. Let's just hope she doesn't come back and insist on refunds or start bad mouthing you. Keep an eye out for any bashing just in case...

The cake is awesome, I'm glad you didn't let her talk to you like that!!! I only wish I would do the same (but thankfully never had to!) If this does happen to mean I will know exactly what to say!

I don't think I could have been as respectful as you were. My hat is off to you for that. Your cake is beautiful and your armadillo is so cute. Keep creating your beautiful, beautiful creations and don't let these miserable people get you down.
Hold your cake banner high!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

way to stand up for yourself.

I think you did it in a great manner.

Next time.. set up a video to record you setting u p the wedding cake.. then put it on youtube so we can all get out the popcorn!

Uhh. It wasn't your cake (it was awesome) she was complaining about everything but I am so glad you had the balls to do this.

I wanna do wedding cakes eventually.. but can i put a sign on the door.. no bridezillas? lol. that is the only thing i dread. that, and mothers getting cakes for their first child's b-day.... scares the crap outta me!

Wow, thank you guys so much! I knew coming here would make me feel better. But telling her off felt great, phew! Now hopefully she won't ask for her money back on Monday.

Also-the bride's mom and grandma were the ones there. The Bride was at the church.

Congrats! Everything Indy said plus your cakes are BEAUTIFUL.

Bravo!

You handled yourself perfectly! If it'd been me, I'd of just shoved her head in the cake. icon_lol.gif

I agree with what Indy said. They paid you for a cake, not for their own personal abuse taker.

Edited to add: Beautiful wedding cake, and I'm lovin' that armadillo!

Summer I always love your posts. I have never seen you disrespect anyone! I am very proud of you and ditto what everybody else said.
I think you handled yourelf very well, I don't think I would have put the piping bag down. I would have a given her a closer look at how red it was and decorated her face for her icon_surprised.gif Some people just don't know how to be happy, and think everyone else should be aas miserable as them. Your cakes are gorgeous as usual, keep caken honey, your gifted.
Did I just type that?? Oh i'm sooo sorry...NOT! Now you all know why i'm not in business icon_razz.gif

Well my hat is off to you and I hope that this old mean witch does not stop you from making wedding cakes for other brides. They will be missing out on a beautiful wedding cake and should all give this woman a beat down for stopping you from doing wedding cakes.

The meaning of "Class"-----------Informal; Elegance of style, taste, and manner, excellent, skilful, or stylish, SUMMERNOELLE

You were a class act in how you conducted yourself with this rude lady. Hats off to you for not lowering yourself to her level! You rose above her rude and nasty remarks in a very tasteful manor and I am very proud of you!!! thumbs_up.gif

Your cakes are beautiful and my monitor shows the red bows very well......they are red. The yellow color of the cake is an obvious lighting issue and not the color of the cake.
The armadillo.......I LOVE THAT ARMADILLO.............It is the cutest animal cake I have ever seen!! icon_biggrin.gif

Teekakes, seriously, one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me. icon_smile.gif

Mostly I am weary of wedding cakes because so many Brides have that princess thing going...it is exhausting. And SO stressful. And yucky tasting. There is just something easier about party cakes!

I hope when I grow up, I can be just like you! I seem to let people treat me like poop! (I try not too!) It drives me nuts! I just want every one to be happy. I'm so proud of you and thank you for setting such a great example!

Your tiered cake is beautiful and I absolutely love the armadillo!
