Dive I love the butterfly cake...How did you do the butterflies? I personally dont care to much for the ribbon. In response to the MOB telling you her daughter would vomit at the site of the cake.. I would have brought over a plate and told her "One order of bride vomit coming up". Her daughter ordered the cake... Some people are impossible to please.

YOur butterflies are beautuiful. I don't think the other cake is horrible, though I do think the ribbon ia a little big. If thats what the bride wanted, then thats what she wanted. As I said the first time, DO NOT give a refund.

What is wrong with people. If the cake was made to the couple's specific instructions, who is she to demand that you remove the cake.

I wonder what the couple did when it came time to cut the cake and they discovered that it was a nasty grocery store abomination? Is the MOB going to sit there and say that you never delivered a cake and that MOB was forced to run out and buy one?

Has the Bride called you yet?

I think the butterfly cake is beautiful. The ribbon cake...looks like a little more time could have been spent on it. It is not placed evenly on each layer, and I see several bubbles. Maybe it is the lighting?

looks like another clause for the generic boiler plate contract:

<name of bakery> will not, under any circumstances, be responsible for supplying any ribbons, crystals, or other similar hard goods decorative items for use to adorn the cake. All such items must be purchased by the bride and supplied to <name of bakery> at least two weeks prior to the event.

Further, <name of bakery> having used and applied said hard good items to the cake as specified and agreed upon in this contract, will not be held liable or determined to be in failure to perform as contracted, if said hard good decorative items are later deemed by the bride or her agent to in any way compromise, clash with or impair the agreed and contracted design. The bride shall not be entitled to any discount or refund based upon such conditions.

Even if there were imperfections, it takes one stuck up princess to let a cake like that ruin your whole wedding day, not to mention the vomit extravaganza the mom said there'd be.

Any updates?

and while we're at it:

maybe modify contracts so ONLY the bride or her agent who must ALSO SIGN the contract are the only ones who can saying anything to us upon the delivery of the cake about it's "fitness" for delivery?

Ribbons are hard to do. I think she was wickedly mean and insulting. So sorry you are going through this. In your defense you made what was ordered. The bride saw your work prior(?) and was happy to order from you. I think the MOB over stepped. Maybe in the future if all parties that are paying should be in on the consultations and they all could see a sketch of what they are describing. Some people have a hard time explaining what their vision is and poorly translate it and then they don't get what they wanted. And some people see their own vision despite what is being described so a sketch that could be initialled and agreed upon would take all that uncertainty out of the equasion for you. I am curious as to what the Bride will say with all that happened. The whole story is such a shame. I like the clause exluding any crap from anyone other than the ordering party! thumbs_up.gif

Honestly, I can see why they were unhappy. Not THAT unhappy, but not thrilled. The cake is leaning (so is the butterfly one) and it is a little messy. The ribbon placement isn't uniform on each tier...

I don't know. The cake isn't great. But the MOB had no right to treat you the way she did, either.
