[quote="tcturtleshell"]I'm a cake snob too! icon_biggrin.gif When my friends go to weddings (of people I don't know) I get them to take pictures of the wedding cakes & groom's cakes for me! icon_lol.gif I make them tell me all about the cakes & how they tasted! icon_lol.gif Usually they'll call me on their way home from the wedding saying my cakes are the BOMB!! (I've brainwashed them!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif quote]

My family and friends do that too!

We're all Cake Snobs and that's perfectly OKAY! We work hard, put great deal of time, love, & effort into our work! If having HIGH STANDARDS and REFINE PALLETES (spelling??) is snobbish, then so be it! icon_biggrin.gif
Who ever doesn't like it, can kiss our spatulas and go buy their cakes at the grocery store! icon_razz.gif

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!!!!!!

I'm not that much of a cake snob, although I certainly appreciate a good tasting cake and an excellent decorating job when it comes my way (or from me). On a side note, Happy Birthday!

Yes, not only am I a cake snob but so are my girls! My girls are 5 and 7, and they don't hesitate when at birthday parties to say quite loudly, "Mom this doesn't taste like YOUR cakes, Yuck!" Yes, it's a bit embarassing, but always ends up a conversation starter and I get orders!

yes! Being any kind of snob is bad. But it doesn't stop ANY of us from being one.

I try not to judge other people's talents, because you never know what kind of infirmaries or disabilities or limitations they have.

The only time I look down on someone else is when they act as though they are far more superior than others. Then I feel it is fair to judge their work, since they blast their own horn so loudly. Some people act as if they are splitting atoms rather than cake layers! And form experience, the really talented decorators don't need to do that. And, even the most talented and experienced have off days.

By the way, I have seen and tasted a great cake at our local grocery store. And, as far as those decorators go, some are talented and others aren't quite so.

Just my 2 cents!!

Happy Birthday! Sorry you got bad cake! But you are definitely not alone!
Yes, I am a cake snob.
For my birthday this year, we went to my husband's parents' lake house with them and his sister and her family. First, let me say, my mom used to make a wonderful carrot cake every year for my birthday. But we don't live in the same state anymore. Anyway, my husband knows how much I love and appreciate a good cake or dessert and just good food in general. So I thought, surely he will surprise me with a great cake this year. Wrong! They went to the grocery store that day and got this chocolate cake that was just not good. I should have known, he is not a planner. But I was so upset! He now knows and understands the importance of quality birthday cake. We'll see what happens next year.

Okay, I just read that and it sounds mean. His heart was in the right place. I did appreciate the thought, but he just doesn't think sometimes. Not the first time, and since we just got married in March, I'm sure it will not be the last!

Chefgirl, You don't know the half of all the suprising things you just didn't know about your husband! My DH and I will be celebrating 13 wonderful years on Monday and he STILL suprises me!
