wrong cake flavor - Page 2

i guess I am a little confused...isn't a white cake essentially the same as yellow, but with no yolks?

Have to agree with Kitagirl...I often use whole eggs in my white WASC cake. They don't change the color all that much. But, if you used yellow cake, there is a difference, and it would depend upon what explanation you gave for your almond cake. If you said it was a white cake, then she might have a right to be a little surprised (shocked? I don't think so!). But, if it was simply called a vanilla almond cake or just something to distinguish it as being different from chocolate, then there is no guaranty it would be pure white!

Oops my bad, read OP again and the cake was from scratch.....

If all you did was include the yolks instead of omit them, then there's no reason for a refund...as someone else said, that "is" your almond cake.

She sounds like a B%#@& looking for any problem to get a freebee, a free grooms cake has she fallen off her rocker!? I'd remind here that she had ordered an almond cake is not a "white cake" which is made with egg whites, inform her that any other cake done with eggs would obviously have a yellow color to it.

to be fair, she ordered a white almond cake...so i guess I should have made a white cake and just flavored with almond extract, as opposed to using my sour cream almond one.

Dear Bride~
I am so glad you enjoyed the cake for your wedding. I'm sorry that you were surprised by the color of my white almond cake. Because I bake from scratch, I use my own recipes that don't often compare to a boxed mix coloring. I do apologize for the confusion, and I should have made it clear to you when you ordered white cake with almond flavor that my "white" cake is different than what you would normally expect. I hope that your guests still enjoyed it, and I am enclosing a gift certificate for your choice of 2 dozen cupcakes or a first wedding anniversary 6" round to be used at your leisure.

She's being ridiculous! I could see if it was chocolate cake instead of almond! If it tasted like almond cake it is almond cake! How petty can someone be? Geesh! I wouldn't give her nothing! Shes just looking for a freebie. I bet she's complaining to the catereer and florist as well.

Great note (though I have to say 2 dozen cupcakes is allot)! But at least you are offering her something. Just make sure that if she orders almond flavored cupcakes you include the yolks this time so that it is not different than the cakeicon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Keep us posted on what she says. Something tells me that she may all of a sudden note something else that was wrong with the cake. . .we will see. . .

Eh 2 dozen cupcakes is a batch of cake...so you still have to make a batch whether you offer 1 or 2 dozen...at least in my opinion...

Kitagrl - you have a point. I would say offer 10% off the next order. But you have to do what your heart tells you is the right thing.

I'm also a little confused about her wanting a free groom's cake... The wedding is over, right?
