Hi all, just need a small rant!! lol... So I spend an obscene amount of time on a rather unusual wedding cake for my cuz and while at the wedding, a girl whom I've known or years and years, comes and sits at a table with a bunch of us and with her nose crinkled up says "Is THAT the cake?" and everyone at the table went quiet and looked at me, and I said nothing and she says, "No really, is THAT thier cake?!??! What's that all about?!?" and she said it so rudely I was just about to strangle her when my sis jumped in and said.. "Jenn made that cake, isn't it awesome?" and the girl goes "You made that?... Well, it's different." and then she walked away.... OMG!!! I wanted to claw her in her eye.. lol... Ok, I'm done now... Some people just don't like anything... see if she ever gets cake from me.. lol....

Absolutely awesome cake. I don't think she meant to offend the decorator cause seriously its flawless, but why they chose that as their wedding cake. I think its really fun and different but most people just expect the same old tiered cake.

That cake is AWESOME very cool. She must've been a Canadiens fan.

OH BTW it is missing one thing. At center ice shouldn't there be a big red winged wheel? hehehehehe Go Wings icon_biggrin.gif

You did an awesome job! Don't let her get you down. You did a wonderful job with what the bride wanted. This person was actually questioning the bride's taste, not your work.

I think I have to agree with the other posters. She was probably expecting a traditional cake and couldn't believe what they chose. It's an awesome looking cake. Great job.

What color dress was she wearing? Did it go good with the green? icon_lol.gif!

Awesome cake! I love it when couples get away from the traditional every now and then...it's what makes this job fun!

Your cake is amazing! I love when cakes are tailored to the bride and groom so creatively!

The nerve of her!!

That cake is awesome - don't let it bother you. I think she's just jealous of your talent!!

OK - I have to agree with everyone and say that she was judging the bride and groom's taste and NOT your cake.

Seriously, I just spent the last 15 mins staring at your cake in absolute AMAZEMENT! that cake ROCKS!!!! And that girl is a big ole B!!

"That, my dear little drama llama, is all about the bride and the groom, and if you are not the birde or the groom, shut your pretty little face up and go away."

Srsly, some people need etiquette lessons, bad...

That is an AWESOME cake and I hope to someday be up to your level of skills, my dear!

That girl was just rude and....You have to tell us how you did this cake!

Is it all cake or just the rink??

First off, I'd like to say what an awesome cake that is! Secondly, I feel very sorry for the girl who made the comment. She showed herself to be tactless and mannerless by making rude comments at a wedding where she was a guest. The cake may not be to her taste as not everyone 'gets' novelty cakes but at the very least she should have shown some respect towards the couple.

I wouldn't take it personally in the least, nor would I let it offend me if I were you.

She didn't say anything about the beauty or the skill involved in that cake. AMAZING, I must say. I think she was wanting to enjoy a little nasty gossip about the bride and groom's lack of traditional taste. Not only did no one "bite", but then she realized she REALLY stuck her foot in her mouth.

Absolutely amazing cake!

Great cake - stupid girl. On a side note - I would love to see close up pictures of your fondant/gumpaste figures!

I will be contacting you for tips the next I have to make some! icon_biggrin.gif

Perfect answer! Why couldnt she just be happy that they were happy, and not judge the bride and groom, its THEIR day, not hers.

Very nice cake!

I heard someone say once, speak as if the world were an open mike...
Too bad she didn't know her mike was turned on, her quick response and hastey exit leads me to believe she was humiliated.

She couldn't possibly have been refering the the cake-manship, it had to have been directed at the bride/grooms taste and lack of tradition, the nerve of them icon_wink.gif

Oh, it's so funny when people do things like that and make fools out of themselves. I know it hurt your feelings, but trust me, everyone at the table was only thinking bad of her.

Your cake, by the way, was awesome!

I can't believe all the details on this cake!!!! I love how you have the bride and groom at center ice and did I mention the details!!!! You did an outstanding job and I agree with everyone else in that I'm sure she was not aiming that comment at the cake specifically (sp??) but that it was not traditional!

BTW Mike,

Habs all the way!!!!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

I agree. Many people have never been to a wedding that has a "nontraditional" cake...although I think they are becoming more and more popular these days.

My guess is that she was horribly embarrassed about her comments when she realized that you made it, since she excused herself faster than a jackrabbit on a date!! icon_wink.gif

I love your cake!!! thumbs_up.gif

If that ever happens to me I will continue the conversation to see how far they will go... I would say " I thoughtâ I was the only one thinking that" ore something to see what else they will say.

I wish people would just be happy for the newlyweds instead of paying attention to everything else.
