The plastic beads cry out choking hazard. The woman that did this mess obviously needs her head examined.

icon_surprised.gif That is one sad sad SAD wedding cake. Maybe someone needs to tell the decorator not to use her airbrush for a hookah pipe... OP, amazing save! The fact that it was old and dry really is "the icing on the cake", isn't it?

I believe the story too. Mainly because I've seen several badly decorated cakes that someone had the nerve to charge for. Not too long ago a friend of mine ordered a cake from a home baker and the cake was horrible. The cake showed through the bread and it looked sloppy. She had originally asked me to make it but she wanted a 3 teir cake for about 40 dollars. When I told her that it wouldn't even cover my supplies she went with this lady. Sad to say she got what she paid for. The only thing I think is untrue about the story is the price. I don't think anyone would pay her that much for that cake.

I don't know why, but when I look at your photos I do not see the cake pictures. Are they posted elsewhere? This is really odd....

Never mind...I went back and read ALL the posts. Now I see the pics. It helps to read things all the way through before acting! That's a lesson I just can't seem to learn! LOL

That's enough right there. Can you say inexperienced illegal home baker?

This is a one phone call deal... illegal is illegal period.

I hope your venue won't be held responsible for allowing an unlicensed baker to supply a cake to your venue should this get into a legal fight.

As a venue you really should check with vendors that they are licensed and insured before allowing their product in your venue.

Oh my gosh! I can't believe what it looked before! You really did a nice job on the cake.



Yes, I believe your story.

Can you imagaine what the bride would have thought had she seen the original cake?

Like I said before, you are a guardian cake angel. I don't know why it still shocks me when I hear about the how stupid people can be.

kudos to you for fixing this mess, you did a wonderful job saving a disaster and i too think it should be submitted to cake wrecks.

Wow- how in the world could someone think that leaving a cake like that is okay? Seriously? Had the woman never seen a stacked cake before? Just because you can open a box of cake mix and slap on some frosting and some fake flowers does not make you a cake decorator.

Thank goodness you were there and had your supplies there because if I had been that bride, I'd have cried my eyes out looking at that. And I definitely agree that the mother should try to get her money back but I doubt that she'll ever see a dime of it.

Thank you for posting the photos. there is absolutely no way I would ever believe that was the same cake. I cannot believe anyone would bring that cake to be used at a wedding. Thank goodness you were there to save the cake for the bride. Excellent job. (I wonder if that would be a cake that cakewrecks would like for their site........ )

The cake pictures were removed by the moderator. Someone else reposted the pictures on page 3 or 4 of this thread.

Hope that helps.
