Her friends will ask her why she didn't come to you for a cake, and she'll have to say she didn't want to spend the money.

What kind of business is she in?

(I'm not going to go into whether this is really an appropriate cake for a mother to get for her 18 year old daughter icon_eek.gif!)

Glad to see I wasn't the only one thinking that cake is a little out there for a just-turned-18-year-old. Especially with the whip: makes you think of S&M. Yeesh!

I'm English, live in the UK, and this behaviour is not normal at all. At least not where I live (and I live in Es***!) That's like me assuming all teenage girls in the US twerk with married men 15 years their senior just because Miley Cyrus did it. These kind of cakes would usually be ordered for a hen do (bachelorette party).

I didn't mean to imply that everyone is like that in the UK, only that it's more commonplace and more accepted than here. Or maybe it's just that all my family and friends are chavs!

It's OK. I'm just a bit sensitive to stuff like that. Growing up where and when I did I obviously had to deal with Es*** girl jokes throughout my teenage years. Even dyed my (natural) blonde hair brown to avoid being a stereotype!

Better turn in your passport now!

Actually I was laughing the other day at the news when they had a story about someone who died from being hit in the head with a stiletto. Not that it was funny but I did wonder if it was white!

I didn't see that story. To be honest I probably would have laughed too, I can have a dark sense of humour sometimes.

Ah OK icon_smile.gif for what it's worth it sounds like something that would happen in Es*** on a Friday night!
