I just finished an order for a bouquet. The customer wanted gerbera daisies (good), any kind of bird (no problem), nail polish bottles (really?), and the flag of Haiti (!!!).

Does anyone know the gal on Ace of Cakes, I think her name is Anna, who freaks out when she's supposed to make something that doesn't make sense to her? Well that's exactly how I am. I'm hoping that becomes easier with experience.

On a bright note, I did learn a little about Haiti in the process.

The most unusual cake request I ever got was for a man getting out jail for embezzlement. The wife wanted the "Get out of Jail" card from Monopoly as the design except with her husband's name on it. Apparently, the family loved it.

It was not my kind of funny, but to each their own.

So far my strangest one was for a bridal shower. She wanted the "pregnant belly" cake, only she wanted it on a mermaid. icon_lol.gif

weridest request I've ever had was for a cake. They wanted a guy on the back porch fighting a squirl with a broom. It was at work and a walk up order so I told them it was impossible on that short of a notice. (not that I could of done it anyway.) I did put a broom on a ready made cake and they went away happy.

I guess I'm a little squeamish, but I don't know that I would enjoy eating a poo shaped cookie. I'm love to see someone's reaction to one, though!

The get-out-of-jail-free cake is so not funny that it is funny. I could see my family doing something like that. Hopefully the need won't arise. icon_smile.gif
