So, today I delivered the wedding cake I made this week. It was only the 2nd one I have done and I was pretty happy with it. Like I am sure the rest of you, I think of my cakes as my children. I put alot of time and energy into them and I am very protective of them. I thought I would share this experience and give you all a laugh.
I had to deliver this cake to the brides fathers home where they were holding the wedding. I loaded the cake up, loaded up my 2 girls and headed off. I ended up in the woods of central Missouri and when I found the address I had to drive to the top of this hill to the "house". I got out of the van and ordered my girls to STAY PUT. The wedding party was taking photos in front of the house between puffs on thier cigarettes, the groom was missing more than one fron tooth, the bride who is a rather large woman (so am I so dont get mad) was wearing a strapless toga type dress that thoughtfully showed off all of her tattoos and had her slip all bunched up around her waist. I took the cake out of the van and started into the dwelling where I found chipped up concrete floors and a 3" step in the middle of the room that they did not warn me about. Only to leave this cake that I really worked hard on in a filthy kitchen filled with smoke and pets. I have never seen so many smokers in one room in my life. I was only in the house for 2 minutes and my girls wanted to know what smelled so bad when I got back in the car. I left knowing without a doubt that the cake I made was the nicest thing for miles around. WOW what an experience.

Well since the cake is camo too, if you dropped some cake on your top no one would notice LOL

Oh my, I would have wanted to take my cake back home after I saw the condition of the house. I would not have wanted my beautiful cake in a filthy kitchen. Especially knowing how hard I worked on it.
