Hey, hey hey! I have that stand! Actually, the only thing I use it for is my samples at my bridal show booths. It looks cute like that, but yeah, really stupid with actual cake on it.

Without the stand it might not have been too bad...it is another ' you get what you pay for ' examples. 

At least the flowers were what she wanted.icon_biggrin.gif  

 

Pretty sure the cake wasn't what she was expecting or there would be more photo's of it, or at least one she would post.

She is a friend of a friend so someday I'm sure I'll have the chance to chat with her and find out what really happened with her cake...

The stand is terrible but the cake itself isn't bad. Your flowers made it look good!

The stand is awful and dated. I'm sure she was very disappointed unless she's living in a time warp. 

 

ps- your flowers made that cake so much nicer!

She should have saved the money she spent on that awful red satin and spent it getting a decent cake from you, even if it meant having less or no flowers on it, since I'm sure the flowers were probably quite a lot.

I always just think the decorator can't stack a cake properly.

I wouldn't want professional photos of that either. What a let down!

Thanks everyone! I put a lot of work into those darn flowers.( not to mention lost sleep worrying about my legal ties to the finished product )  At least she was happy with the flowers , I can't imagine she was too thrilled with the cake though. Especially after comparing it to the photo of the cake she wanted. 

 

Very frustrating when people penny pinch on the cake then come to find out they had enough money to hire a band to come to NY from Canada to perform at the reception. 

I think I know where the original cake budget went....detective.gif

Ooooh deaarrrrr lorrrd.

 

Nope, not the same. Not nearly. Not even close. Is it even fondant covered?

 

I imagined that the cascade would be thinner (not as wide) to account for the lack of flowers. I did not expect that the other caker wouldn't even stack the cakes.

 

The stand is bigger than the cakes. Who does that?

 

The way the flowers are arranged make it look like a birthday or other occasion cake- not a wedding cake.

 

Do you think the bride saw a portfolio of this person's work before the order was placed.

Oh, how I hate when people do that! I would rather have a DJ or just an ipod on shuffle and a beautiful, yummy cake. A band and bad cake... wow...

When the bride came to pick up the flowers I did have a chance to ask who was doing the cake and a few details. She told me the new baker wasn't going to do fondant because she said in the heat it would just " turn to glue".

Mind you we are in NY and it was only in the high 70's and an indoor air conditioned reception.icon_wink.gif

I gave her a confused look and told her I do fondant no matter what the temp gets here. I then looked on facebook at the bakers cakes, everything she has done has been buttercream, I'm thinking she just doesn't do fondant and talked her way out of it.

Not sure if the bride had seen the bakers other work but I think she just heard big cake and less money and got excited.

 

I was expecting the same, a thin cascade, but same cake overall. 

 

I would have been PISSED if I got to my reception and saw that.

I get pretty irritated when I get worked over on a cake , then when I go to deliver it I see they have every other bell and whistle at the wedding and a full blown 5 star reception. But they only budgeted like $200 for the cake ?!? icon_mad.gif
