Wedding Cake Disaster. - Page 9

post #121 of 146
I wonder if she'll resurface under a different name, gosh I hope not! Someone mentioned this wasn't the first time she had negative feedback.
At first I put a lot of blame on the buyer as well for jumping at a cheap deal, but now I can't believe she was let down by her original baker (who couldn't have been that good because she referred her if I'm understanding correctly), as well as the actual 'baker' that dropped that hideous garbage off. They said they didn't want it and she still left it there!

I wish I could go back a couple pages to quote whoever said it first but, not everyone can decorate cakes!

You better believe it, lol. I have 3 bakers in the surrounding area that I am friendly with. We all have an arrangement, if something happens, we will work together to take over that baker's orders.

We all price very similarly, so just leave the price as is.

 

My mother took a very bad turn and passed away at the height of wedding cake season, if it hadn't of been for those ladies I don't know what I would have done.

 

One of them was in a car accident and broke her arm, so we split up her workload between the 3 of us for 2 months.

It can save your business, or at least a lot of grief, having people you can rely on.

Yes it seems like it would be very helpful to have in place.  I wonder what the brides original baker has to say about all this if she even knows!

They still mentioned her real name, so at least people who had seen the article would know it was her. And woe be any other person in the cake business with the unfortunate coincidence of having the same name haha

ScrumDiddly, I get that and if its done right it looks awesome. Perhaps she was going for a rainbow cake, BUT that's definitely not the way to do it. On the layers towards the bottom there's bits of green in the sponge, makes it look moldy. Ugh.

I wonder if shes a CC member lol... and I wonder what her side of the story could possibly be.

The inside of that cake looks like she just took some cakes she had laying around and tried to throw them together last minute. And I dont see any frosting. Just looks like a nasty cake.

She had every right to put that on Ebay and NAME The baker. That is a disgrace!

We have lots of rights. We have the right to go to shop at walmart in pj's with hair that hasn't been brushed for two weeks. We have the right to act like a Kardashian.  We have the right to act like big drama queens at our weddings..oh wait there's a show for that, too. And we have the right to shame someone world wide when they do us wrong. I had a fence built that had to be redone because it was so bad.  Excuse me, but I have to now start a campaign to make sure these people never make another fence again and the the entire world knows about it.

 

What the cake person did was unconscionable, but that doesn't mean the bride isn't a tacky self centered immature person acting like a 2 year old.

I do agree completely with you... but if the bride was a blogger who blogged about her terrible cake instead of posting on eBay, would we still be thinking she's overreacting?  

post #132 of 146

I'm still not sure why you think she is overacting in this one instance HowSweet?

Maybe she is selfish in other areas who knows? We are talking about this instance.

You really think its wrong she took it to EBAY???icon_confused.gif maybe I miss read what you were sayin

I really don't get why some people think the bride is tasteless or immature for sticking that cake on ebay. At the end of the day, whether it was cheap or not, she paid for a service that her vendor promised they could deliver. Whoever baked that cake should be utterly ashamed to deliver it, I can't imagine ever being in a situation where I'd think handing over something like that was acceptable, but she did and happily walked off with their money.

Can't speak for anyone else, but I dont think putting the cake on eBay was immature.  The only thing I found tasteless/immature/etc was her statement about taking steps to ensure this baker never makes another cake.  Taking it a bit far IMO

I might think she was taking it a bit far if it weren't for the "rancid" comments she made. When something is rancid that means it's severely spoiled and therein lies the potential to make someone seriously ill. So many on here worry about our frostings and cakes being out for a few hours because of perishable items and here this baker has a cake that is 1. Not frosted, decorated properly & 2. Cake & cupcakes that smelt "rancid". Those are dangerous conditions to be selling your items under, the health department would shut you down if they inspected and found you had rancid products for consumption. The fact that there are numerous complaints about this baker also doesn't help because it shows she has had no regard for her customers and no plans to improve or change her ways. Her time to change and fix her mistakes are well past now and she deserves to be shut down for good.
