don't leave cake uncovered - Page 4

post #46 of 103
Gross pet stories:

1) I was at a friends house one time and she cut up some cheese and crackers and put them on the island in her kitchen. I pulled up a stool and we were chatting and her cat hopped up on the island. then she met the cat. then the cat laid down on the island and put it's little paw up on the plate and whacked the cracker a little bit. She kept on eating! I stopped.

2) First Thanksgiving with my inlaws, prior to them being my inlaws, we get to their house and the thanksgiving ham is sitting there. His mom tells me the DOG ate half the ham, but she cut off the end he chewed on, washed it off, and put it back in the oven "to kill the germs". She told everyone the story and I am the only person who did not eat the ham!!! can you believe it?!


The thing about this post to me is this, everyone is different. If you told me that story and served the cake, I would not run screaming from the house, but I would politely decline and say I was full or something... But, I can see a lot of other people that have come and gone in my life laughing and chowing right now.

We had some friends over for dinner tonight and were talking about restaurants. I was telling them that I went to this mexican place that I just love at the beginning of May and I scooped up a big chip of salsa and right in it was a black hair, and I have not been back since. Just thinking about it makes me gag a bit. It's such a shame, this is/was my absolute favorite restaurant. So this one guy we had over was like, really? you're crazy, I would have pulled it out and kept eating, doesn't bother me. So, to each his own!

Seriously, guys? :/

Somewhere right now on this forum, someone is looking for some REAL feedback. And that's my opinion.

I just had to say one more thing after having my laugh, Remember she said she didn't think the dog ate it because he would have ate more. So The dog and the cat might have enjoyed the cake along with the guest.

THATS WHAT I WAS THINKING!!!!! Yes I just yelled that icon_biggrin.gificon_rolleyes.gif

When I said it was an awfully hungry cat, I was thinking that that didn't look like cat damage to me....

OK, to lighten this up a bit, here's my story:

I got married nearly two years ago and our niece wanted to make us a cake for the reception (she's an up-and-coming professional plus it's perfectly normal in Germany to have people bring a variety of cakes, just FYI). I had told her I was making one but she did two anyway. She's so sweet.

Well, this family also has two dogs so they came in their RV and left the dogs in there during the ceremony. During picture-taking my brother-in-law was suddenly missing and looking very guilty when he came back. He had forgotten to put one of the dogs in its carrier and it had gone to town on one of the cakes (the one that wouldn't fit in a box) and licked half the whipped cream off it! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif My niece was furious and I felt so bad for her. Now, nearly two years later, we can laugh about it! And apparently the dog was pretty gassy the whole next day (serves it right!). The consolation: she was the one to catch the bouquet that night icon_smile.gif

No, the cake wasn't served. But thank goodness they got a picture of it! It certainly makes for a memory. I heard that the other one she made (banana cream) was delicious. I think I was so distracted I didn't even get a chance to try it.

I'd have to agree with OP - don't leave cakes uncovered! And it's amazing what animals will eat (my cat LOVED corn and chili!).

I'll try it again...


(whoops - sorry! I guess it did! Just took a moment to show up. I think I got this figured out now!)

Can you show me where I said you were "being rude to her"? I just reread my post that you are referring to and I NEVER made that comment.

You need to stop reading between the lines and stop interpreting what people ACTUALLY write into what you THINK they're writing.

This has completely gotten out of hand. I'm starting to think this site has been taken over by a bunch of school children on summer break icon_rolleyes.gif It's not even fun here anymore.....I'm WAY too old for these childish games.

I think you're an angel disguised as a mild mannered cake decorator.



I agree! What a wonderful person you are to welcome three children into your home and heart. Cat spit or no, your children are lucky to have you as a parent who wants to make their birthday a special moment. That cake and cat story will most likely become a precious part of your family legend that you all laugh about together for years to come.

BTW, I would've just cut it off, warned my family so they wouldn't eat it if they didn't want it, and served it, too. Considering what most people are willing to put into their bodies, I think we get a bit hysterical about a few germs from a pet.

Ruth, Amen! I would've done exactly the same thing. (If it was just a family cake like this one) I know people who wouldn't care and folks who would run screaming. We are all entitled to our own opinion.

Oh, oh, wait, can you hear the music?

All we need is love,,, da da da da da, all we need is love,,, da, da, da, da, da...

Sweet dreams everyone!!
