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.
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.
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.
