My husband is the executive chef of a resturant and I have been making cakes for special events there for a while. recently the owners wife decided to LIE and tell customers that MY cakes are her creations. GRRRRR So hubby called her on it and she decided she could bake better than me and didnt order a cake from for a special event.

Well miss no it all asks my hubby they day before it is do if I can make it. He said no since it was 4 hrs till they needed it (cake to serve 150 yikes!) So she asks him to ask me what she should use to write a message on whipped cream. When he asks me I was confused....whipped cream are you sure?? I asked. He said yep she is covering and filling the whole cake with whipped cream. I thgought he mistook buttercream with whipped cream but boy was I wrong!!!

Here is her procedure.

Starts whipping the cream realizes she needed more cream and left leaving the mixer running. Hubby turned it off at soft peak but doesnt touch it cause she has a temper.
2 HRS LATER she returns pours another quart of cream in whips it for 3 mins and says its done. Mind you the original mixture wasnt even refrigerated!!! Hubby mentioned it and she rolls her eyes and said shut up its fine. she pours the cream YES POURS it was runny onto the cake spreads it around then tops it with a can of peaches she puts the second layer on and "Ices" the cake with more runny whipped cream they puts 3 bottles of grocery store sprinkles on it. Huuby said it was crooked and weird but he didnt say a word . She then stores this cake on top of the oven for an hour while she drinks at the bar. So normal resturant procedures makes a kitchen VERY HOT so an hour later he hears her scream looks and the "icing" had melted off the cake and down the side of the oven. She then curses my husband out for not mentioning that the kitchen was so hot. WHATEVER!!
she still insists on serving the cake so she slices it in the kitchen and serves it YUCK. She then proceded tp make the staff have a "taste" the dishwasher bites it spits it out and walks away. She asks hubby what was wrong he tastes it and replies ummmm you forgot to put the sugar in the cake and cream DUH!!!!!
Whats funny is she still insists thats how the customer ordered it thumbsdown.gif

Agree! Especially since she made the cake "the way the customer ordered it".

"Hello? I'd like to order a cake. No sugar. And just slap some canned peaches in the middle. Oh.... and don't forget to let the icing melt and run all over the place, too! Thanks!"

Oh, by the way, never mind the icing.... just use some half-whipped over-whipped, non-whipped whipped cream instead. And put it on top of a hot oven so the cream melts and soaks in.

Indydebi & chutzpah - 2 of our cake greats, how much do you reckon you'd charge per portion for such a speciality design/cake? Would you you include an optional fee for covering food poisoning liability or would that be considered overkill? icon_lol.gif Honestly, just when you think you have come across every kind of cake 'fool' another one appears making the others look intelligent. tapedshut.gif

Wow, how can your husband stand to work there? He must have nerves of steel to have her running in and out, making a mess and acting ugly.

Has he thought about opening his own place and taking his recipes with him? icon_lol.gif

Did the customer ask to be in the bathroom for 1 day vomiting and/or pooping their brains out also with their order?

I have a crystal ball out right now and magically see your prices doubling with their next order.

If she does make another cake attempt, please be there waiting with a camera and send the pic for all of use to see.

What a wacko!

She will surely look at what you do with new respect if she has any sense at all. Never mind based on what she did her elevator does not go all the way upstairs! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh gosh. I love that he owner of a RESTAURANT is oblivious to health codes. Sure, lets leave cream out for a few hours unrefrigerated, it adds flavor....

Geezus! Tell that lady to take a class in food safety.

awesome. Now I know where to order my next cake! Just one taste will cure me of my cake "problem". Not only am I guaranteed to never like cake again, but whipped cream as well. The hours bent over a toilet heaving will definitely reinforce that. thumbs_up.gif

Please tell me your husband had a camera phone on him and got a picture of the masterpiece! Sounds like a great candidate for the cake wrecks blog.

No, no,no... it's the "I wanna lose 5 pounds with food poisioning diet cake". Barf and poops ought to do it... with that safe combo, I bet it last MORE than a day or two.

Maybe we all need to add it to our recipe box. Heaven knows I could use to loose a few pounds...
