a weird request..please help - Page 2

EWWWW is right!!!!

The kids really would love them. I will have to see if there is such a thing. If not I think I will use gummy worms or try to convince the customer to just let me put them on the ouside of the cake.

Get the gummy bugs they are by the fruit snaks at Walmart I think they are the Shrek ones I have bought those before but I still don't know if I would want it in the cake they still are kinda small and still could be choked on! I would just have to explain that to the customer that is why King cakes do not have the babies in it when you purchase them anymore. Just not safe..

I wouldn't put them inside...taking to big a risk.

If she still want the bugs, try talking her into letting you do the gummy bugs on top where they can be seen.

Even if she signs a waiver and something happens, your name will be ruined.

Good luck.

First of all, is shepaying you enough for this cake to warrant digging holes and filling them back in? Probably not. Besides, she sound like a whack job to me, but a customer ois a customer.

If she insists on having the 'bugs' in the cake, just sprinkle a few raisins in the batter and let the kids think they are bugs. No biggie!

I agree that you could be liable for someone choking...imagine one of these kids choking and the parents coming after you, the baker, with a lawsuit. I would fill it with gummy worms or gummy bugs/candies (torte the cake and put them in after you bake). At least it is edible and if they choke, they can't blame you.

I think the raisins are a great idea. Hopefully if you mention the choking factor to the customer, she will agree with you and go another route. In any case, I would definitely use edible bugs instead of plastic ones. Unless the plastic ones are big enough not be choked on and are on top only. The liability issue is huge these days... not only that, but I would feel terrible if someone got hurt from something I made. If I couldn't convince her that plastic bugs are a bad idea, then I would turn down the cake.

i agree with everyone on not putting the plastic bugs in the cake.but what about those plastic bug rings they are kind of big.

If you are looking for the EWWWWWW factor. Torte the cake cut out the center of the bottom and fill it with jello and candy bugs. put the top and ice it. So when the cake is cut it will ooze out slime

Whatever you decide to do, please keep in mind that just because something is edible doesn't mean it isn't a choking hazard. Even gummy, which is soft, can get lodged in the throat if you don't know it's there. I personally would stick with stuff that's visible, or the raisins are a good idea, too. The mom can tell the kids they're bugs that got cooked in with the cake. EEEWWW! icon_razz.gif

now that calls for a double EWWWWWWW EWWWWWW!!!!!

How do you put the jello in it? Could you explain that more please?? That would be a great idea for a halloween cake!!

I talked to the mom today and we are NOT putting anything in the cake. I told her about the choking and she totally agreed. She said she didn't even think about it.
I think she was embarrased.
Like me, I was too. I have children of my own and that didn't even accure to me. OH MY!

I am glad you got that all worked out! Better to be safe than have an accident. I am sure the kids will love the cake no matter what!

That idea is from a halloween spider cake. Cut the center out of the bottom cake so it is a ring use the cut out circle as the head. Fill it with jello that has not firmed up all the way. Then put the top layer on. For the spider frost it black use licorice for the legs and gumballs for eyes. When you cut into the cake it oozes.
