I was watching 18 Kids and Counting--I saw by the preview it was going to be a show where they threw a baby shower for the DIL and of course I knew there had to be a cake to be seen.

Sure enough, the bakery spelled the name wrong...no sweat. Momma Duggard took a toothpick carefully lifted and adjusted the letters and presto.. no sweat. I love the way that family deals with things--no tantrums, no blame game. Just fix and move along! And she did a fine job, btw, couldn't tell there was a mistake in the first place.

Sorry for your mix-up, but I'm loving the topic!

We adopted our son in 2008 and we had a party to celebrate the finalization of his adoption, which happened when he was six months old. I ordered a photo cake from a local grocery store bakery (now I've taken decorating classes and do my own cakes, that way I can be the one to screw them up!). I asked that they write "It's Official!" and "Forever Family" above and below the photo of us with the judge. I rushed in to pick up the cake just before the party, only to discover it said:

It's Officals!

I had a similar thing happen. I just had started my new business and was so happy with the cake. I took pictures of it right before the customer picked it up. I downloaded my pictures and noticed the mistake as I was posting it on my website. I had forgotten part of the H in happy. The cake wasn't to be picked up until the next day, so thank goodness I decided to download my pictures right away that day.

I know double check everything. icon_smile.gif

This reminds me of when I was making christmas cakes (Had about 12 to do) Everything was done and all I had to do was pipe 'Happy Chisrtmas' on each cake. I got a phone call on boxing day from one customer laughing so much as she said thank you for the cake it was wonderful but one little error. I had managed pipe Happy Birthday on hers!!!! guess I need to remember to concentrate a little more next time.

Yep guilty of misspelling too! BIRTDAY........many times, HUPPY........a couple, SORY.......once! icon_redface.gif
Now I double check everything, pipe it on the work table before piping it on to the cake too, just so the cake is not messed up!
Happens to the best of us too! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

LOL great thread.

my friend sent me this and I had to share it with you! This place is only about 15 minutes from me! icon_wink.gif

"My cousin Rachael ordered a cake for her brother and my cousin Ben from the bakery at NAME OF BAKERY EDITED. He is moving to Texas and she went up in person to order the cake from the bakery. She gave the colors and asked if they would put the shape of the State of Texas on the cake. I have attached the picture of the cake she picked up yesterday to take to his going away party. Thought you guys would appreciate this especially people from Portland."

And look at the cake! LMBO! OKAY! Cake photo didnt post, so look for it in my photos, heehee
