Notice that all focus on very self-centered bad behavior.

I believe the modern terms when applied to caking are Bridezillas and Momzillas; "snert" being more properly applied to males, the groom in this case.

I used to be a tutor in the Academic Assistance Center that AOL ran for several years (AAC PrfDoug) and that's where I picked up the use of that term.
Keep on cakin'!

What an awful thing to happen! So, either the MOB is nutty - she's out to ruin her daughter's wedding with no cake or a last-minute grocery store cake? Huh? or that bride was the all time bridezilla of the world and MOB was terrified of her..... if the MOB is that bad, what is the Bride like? Yikes... You may have dodged a literal bullet! That being said, please no refunds.

Wow! If I had been the bride and my mom and groom sent that cake back without consulting me, they would have been a greasy spot (or 2!) on the floor. I do agree that television shows reward bad behaviour and our culture now demands perfection or off to court we go. What a shame. I am sorry that you had to deal with this and I do wish your GD a very happy birthday.

I own a Catering and cake design co., I am currently on day 33 of NO days off. Friday I got 3 hours sleep then put in a long horrify day on the day the event happened. I would not waste my time posting something that was not true, as I value my down time, I was just in total shock because I have heard of things like this but new it would always happen to the "Other guy".
Yes it was my grand daughters bday on 8-2-09 the wedding was 8-01-09, I made my GD an oreo cookies and cream cake that looked like a giant cookie, I also had a wedding the morning of my gd's bday but paid my staff to take over so I would not miss yet another bday, my assistant suggested since the cake was just going to go to the mission wouldn't it be better to give it to her? ( why on earth would I lie about that? )I am saddened by the fact that people on this forum (some) would be so quick to take a cynical view of a post I made, I would not waste my time or yours , and my information is visible to all, including my business info, I have been a member for 3 years and hardly post because I am busy working, I would not waste the time to tarnish the name of my business and embaress myself.
Thank you for listening


WOW!!!! Since when do we need to defend ourselves???!!!!! There may have been bad posts in the past, that doesn't mean we should "attack" other posts with the insinuation that they are false! HOW HURTFUL!!!! My daughters birthday was the 30th and I had a wedding the 1st. I would have given the cake to my daughter for "her birthday". Would that have made me a liar?!

I am interested to see what the Bride had to say. A crooked cake is better than a store bought cake FOR MY WEDDING!. Diva maybe you should have saved the cake and told them it was available for pick-up as soon as they were done having their tantrum. Technically, they still owe you or at least owe you half.

Some people are just nuts. I worked at walmart for six years and nothing surprises me anymore. My supervisor offered me a spot working at the service once and I told her I could not. That I wanted to keep my job, and not be fired for yelling at some idiot for trying to return something they broke or used or any other crazy reason. After that I was put to work in the back. I guess she knew I wasn't joking.

Some crazies will try anything.

I hope the MOB does not make a bigger mess for you.

Congrats on your successful business, Diva! What a dream!
Like others, i'm sorry you had to go through that, and i PRAY it never happens to me!!

Picture or none, i'm sure your work is awesome (or you wouldn't have a successful business!)!

I've had a few negative responses myself on CC. I just sign off, and find something better to do for a while. I guess some people just can't help it.

Based on my background of coming from a complete psycho family, I say MOB is one of those powerless women who likes to THINK she's the almighty powerful. Ruining her daughter's wedding is secondary to her desire to show all of her little friends how she "by god just TOLD that cake baker how it was going to be! I told her to just get it out of here! We'd have grocery store cake before we ate that crap!" (Wow, are we ALL impressed now?)

I describe one family member's priority as: "It's not important that she be right.....it's more important to her that you be wrong." It's not relevent whether she's actually right or wrong .... her whole purpose is to belittle other people. It's the only way she can feel "big".

No one has "ATTACKED" the op. I was questioning and I have EVERY right to express my concerns or curiosity about anything I want. I don't have the right to be rude or nasty and I wasn't and nor was anyone else. For those who had a problem with people wondering about the op's thread,quit being so overly sensitive and get a grip.

Hi All,
I hate drama ( I know I am a Caterer I should be used to the stresssss)
So, super quick upload, a picture off the camera of my assistant with some details: the original cake was a Martha, peach, fondant, peach crimped ribbon, in the magazine with the butterflies all over it (I did that cake too) however the bride changed it to: chocolate brown fondant, pink ribbon with white border top & bottom (brown shows through) not crimped but flat)
Again, while I was there being verbally abused by MOM I repeatedly stated I would do any of the following : remove ribbon and hand pipe, add flowers, add beads add whatever she wanted, I would not have recommended her choices, however they were her choices.
