Cake fell over!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 17

Oh my word. 

First, agreed with everyone else about correct boundaries on who sets up a cake. But you've learned.

 

Next, I'm sorry but grow a backbone or finish cakes earlier. If they show up 1 hour early, you say "um, you're one hour early, go away." I can imagine the kind of pressure you were under trying to get a cake finished while the customer is waiting for you. That would lead to disaster in my bakery as well, as I don't like having any kind of audience. 

 

If you don't want to tell people to go away, then at least finish cakes the day before so they have time to chill properly and then they have less chance of disaster. Then if Aunt Flo shows up all clueless you have a much better chance of thinking on your toes. 

 

My heart goes out to you and I pray the fallout is short lived!

I received the same, shall I pick the cake up and stack them 2 days before the wedding.( brides mother) . Also, i had a hotel tell me when i turned up at the agreed time, just leave it in that room, i get somebody to move it later..absolute fear runs through me that 'something' could go wrong.. I ended up waiting two hours clinging to the cake, but for peace of mind, it's worth just booking out that time.... I can't imagine how you must of felt, it happens and I've learnt by this thread too.. It's ours until its a finished article standing proud where it should be standing..all the best for the future..
