spelled name wrong!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
this isn't a complete disaster, but I hate myself for it. I did a cake for a cousin's party at the last minute. only because it was boobs, and well, I wanted to make boobs! ha ha. I wrote his name on it like a necklace and spelled it wrong. all those people saw it and it was my own stinkin' family! what a jerk! I felt so stupid. thankfully, it was family and it was free. still though! thankfully my cakes for other "real" customers went off ok!

This brings to mind something that happened on a busy Graduation weekend years ago at the bakery. We had 100's of cakes and had worked many hours of overtime....needless to say we were all getting a little punchie!
One of the decorators transposed letters and wrote, "Congratulations Brain" rather than "Congratulations Brian".....LOL!

It was quickly repaired, but the graduate's Mother didn't see the humor in it that we did....after all....it was accolades for graduating and being a "brain"!

I made an anniversary cake as a gift for my best friend and her husband and I accidentally spelled my best friend's name wrong. I didn't even notice until she pointed it out. I was very embarrassed but she just laughed at me. icon_rolleyes.gif

I know exactly how you feel! I've done the same thing. Once its was the name spelled wrong, the other was the greeting. I wrote Birtday instead of Birthday. I'd left out the h and didn't even notice my blunder! icon_redface.gif

thanks! I feel so stupid because I walked around the party all night feeling so proud of the cake, and then today I looked at pictures of the party on facebook and noticed his name! Oh the shame!

I did this just recently too!
Nearly 10 years of baking & you'd think you wouldn't do such a thing.. Being exhausted & in a hurry mistakes happen, always on Fridays too... & just like you I took pics & was so proud I sent them via text to DH (who is stationed in Afghanistan).. Neither the graduate nor his family nor I noticed "Adnrew" until Sun morning when DH sends message back saying that was a funny way to spell "Andrew"!! & this wasn't a freebie either! UGH... while they were good natured about it I did the appropriate thing & refunded the money. Oh well proves were human after all.

I had one of those moments the other day where I was delievering a cake and it was for "Happy Birthday Judy"...and all of a sudden this sick felling cake over me while I was en route and I was thinking " Did he say "Julie?" Or "Judy" ??? ANd I kept going back and forth over and over in my head until I got there and I was so frantic by the time I walked in with the cake, it was the first thing I blurted out. "You said Judy right???" LOL my customer just laughed and said "ya". And boy he really could have had some fun with me at that moment if he wanted to! OH and I remember in the beginning it seemed like everytime I turned around I was writing BIRTDAY.

I remember an episode of Ace of Cakes where they said spelling birthday "birtday" was the most common spelling mistake....I have done that many times, but SO FAR have noticed once I did it and was able to repair....so far...lol
