Hey, don't apologize, I think it's pretty hilarious too! I mean, there was some SERIOUS lacking of common sense. And to make it even better:

The following text message conversation just happened:

Me (to my sister): Soooo who did the cake cutting?!
Her: The bride. And I wasn't going to argue with her! LOL
Me: Does she know how lucky she is that the whole thing didn't fall apart!?
Her: .....*silence*

I didn't cut this cake but I'm not much better. icon_redface.gif Honestly, I can't cut cake worth a darn.

Many years ago, I had to cut the cake at a wedding. It was for 300 people and I was by myself. I had 1 big honkin' knife, no napkins to wipe the blade and I had no idea how to cut a 12" round cake. Let me tell you, I had cake everywhere! Thankfully, they were all satellite cakes and no tiers to deal with. That was probably 20 years ago and I still hate to cut cakes. icon_cry.gif I have pity for this poor person.

Though that would be a good invention for situations like this! icon_biggrin.gif



They do sell something for that! http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/pdf_catalog/Cake-store.pdf at country kitchen sweet art. it's called K&S Cake Press Cake Dividers. They have different sizes 9x13 pan, half sheet cake, (both 2" squares) and a generic 1x2 that says it can be used on 'various wedding cake shapes and sizes' it doesn't cut it all the way down, but makes an impression for where to cut!

Remembered seeing that and thought I'd share! Someone's already taken that ideaicon_smile.gif

Looks like a great way to torture a poor wedding cake.

Cake torture. That's what it is. icon_biggrin.gif

Well, it is cake torture. On the other hand - it was perfectly stacked cake. I didn't know our cakes can withstand such abuse icon_smile.gif

Indydebi I must admit i'm like you, cpmpletely self taught...well CC taught. I've never been able to take any classes. I DID learn how to cut cakes from YOUR site! LOL!! Thank you very very much for making it available to us! Before that, all my round cakes were cut like pies! OH boy have I learned a lot from me fellow CC'ers!

As for that cake it looks like my 16 yr old son cut it! After all, he cut his brothers with a straight edge metal cookie lifter while I was still in the pool and they couldn't wait for the cake!! Talk about a mess, a mom having a coniption fit!

So sadly funny I think I hurt myself laughing! Sorry this happened but what a priceless moment for all of us! Thanks for sharing... now I have to go look again - a "roadkill" cake?

I don't think they cut it at all. I think everyone grabbed a fork and started eating!

I talked to my sister last night. She said that the guests were getting anxious for cake and didn't want to wait any longer so the bride took it upon herself to cut it. When my sister told her that she had a guide to use the bride ignored her and wanted to do it herself to please the guests and to show my sister she could do it.

errr... okay. Good job, I guess?
