A bit off-topic, but thought I'd share a little story that is as funny as it is apalling.

I went to a cake competition a few weekends ago, and there is a tasting category. The sign said "Cake Tasting Division". We actually watched as ladies went over there and cut pieces out of the cakes and started eating them!! We quickly ran over to inform them what "Cake Tasting Division" meant. I have been to a lot of cake shows with tasting categories, but this is the first time I've seen that!!

OK--I've never been to a cake competition. What's a "Cake Tasting Division"? I've never heard of it, but I certainly wouldn't go at a contestant's cake with a knife (even if it was chocolate).

The prize is awarded based on how well you bake and execute a particular recipe.

For example, the cake tasting might be for Italian Cream. So everyone enters their recipe, and the judges sample those recipes and decide which one taste the best.

No the "fella" couldn't make it...so she brought, Mom, Dad....2 sisters, her MIL....and her soon to be SIL...instead. They all tried the small cupcakes I had made up and she took 6 with her for her FELLA! She ordered the wedding cake....put the deposit down....called back in 2 weeks and asked if she could come do another tasting!! I was like...you already did a tasting....and she said her fella didn't get to taste any of the cake. I reminded her that I sent 6 cupcakes along with her....her exact words....OH THOSE DIDN'T MAKE IT HOME...I ATE ALL OF THEM ON THE WAY!!! I then told her....sorry, if she wanted to order some then I could work that out....but I don't do 2 tasting. I am sure there are other's out there with similar stories too...LOL!



What blows me away about this is the BTB wasn't even ashamed to say she'd eaten all SIX of the cupcakes! If I couldn't keep my pie hole shut long enough to allow my "fella" to enjoy at least ONE of them, I'd be so humiliated at my own gluttony I'd make up a story like I dropped them all in a mud puddle or the dog ate them! LOL!

I would NEVER criticize anyone for eating SIX cupcakes, because I'm the girl who ate the ENTIRE fruitcake by herself. It did take a week or so, but I ate it all. Every cherry, nut and crumb. It was all I ate, day in and day out. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fruitcake, fruitcake, fruitcake.
Six cupcakes? That's a snack, compared to my doorstop fruitcake!

LOL!! My husband will stand and eat the entire fruitcake in one afternoon!

I do have a little story though...I just got a call yesterday from an event planner asking if I made cake that was safe for dogs to eat - he was planning an event for 200 and needed dog cake! icon_eek.gif After a pause, I asked if he knew that dogs shouldn't eat people food - after his pause, he said that he didn't know that!

you can make cake that dogs can eat, they love carob, and it is perfectly safe for dogs to eat "people" food. I know people who make their own dogs food. It's the processed junk and chocolate and some other items that are dangerous for dogs. Dog food hasn't been around forever.

I sympathize with those who have had "tastings." Due to a couple of 'questionable' experiences, it's now free if you book your cake at the tasting and $25 to cover expenses if they don't.

Works out nice and I don't waste time or materials anymore. icon_wink.gif
