Anaelisabethlee thank you for replying , our local morrisons does a boob style cake to be honest it's terrible and that's not me being nasty it's like to balls wrapped in a blanket I went get petrol after school so I couldn't help but to pop in see what I was up against its £12.99 I picked it up and showed my 15 year old daughter I asked what would you say that is ? Her face said it all she hadn't got a clue lol
There's not many things I stand my ground on but this one I am, I now no thanks to everyone on cc that's its worth £70 if not more so I'm going text at 8 what ever the answer don't take it to heart, wasted to much of my night/ day fretting life's to short to worry about silly things

She probably priced the cake elsewhere and got set straight by the quotes she got.

Thanks to all who have replied icon_smile.gif

Oh, I see - I make my living this way and the last customers I want are friends and family. They know how expensive mys cakes are and probably don't even want to get in a conversation about possibly buying one. I do occasionally give a cake away.

I didn't even think of that. Holy cow.

It's not a cake I see buying my daughter no matter how old she is. My daughter and I share a lot, but we never have chats about ***y lingerie and whips. Not in a personal sense.

It's a cultural difference between the two countries is all. Nothing wrong with it in the UK at all, things are just different there.

That's interesting...if my daughters are using whips in the bedroom, this is not something that would be shared with me. At least I hope not. One of them has an occasional habit of sharing something I'd have rather not have heard,  leaving me with a visual I could have also lived without. It must be her English genes speaking. :lol::lol::lol:
