So the bride decides to make her own wedding cake. She makes one round cake, several dozen cupcakes which are displayed on some antique-y looking stands and 3 sheetcakes to cut up in the kitchen. Kinda sloppy looking, but she's an amateur bride, right?

When the 200+ guests (attempted) to bite into the cakes, there was a shared expression of horror - kind of like Andy and Barney eating Aunt Bea's pickles!

Folks, this was the worst cake I've ever tasted. It didn't even have the texture of cake. I can't even describe it! Maybe an iced golf ball. The icing tasted like butter and some sort of chemical. All over the reception site, uneaten pieces of these potential weapons were discarded.

When I asked why in the world the bride would attempt to make her own cake (she comes from a very wealthy family), I was told that she was doing it for the advertising because she is opening her own cake shop!
I know at least 200 people who will never be customers!

I remember that episode well, and the faces they made.

I hope you have an assistant, because it sounds like people are going to be crowding your door soon!

Hope she doesn't read this. Maybe she was really proud of her cake. Don't judge.

I hope she DOES read this! Better to learn your cakes don't taste good BEFORE you spend all the money to open a shop.

I had a similar situation happen last summer. A friend invided my daughters and I to her little girls birthday party. Gramma was making the cake so I did not offer. We get there and gramma walks out with a cardboard box containing white and chocolate cupcakes. Well, all of the kids grabed for the chocolate ones and the looks on these little faces was priceless. These hockey pucks had been cut open and what I think was supposed to be a german chocolate icing was put inside of them. Every kid took one bite, spit them on the grass and walked away looking like someone had just shot thier puppy. I have never had anything like it. They were just plain gross. Gramma did not seem to notice. I was laughing my butt off (on the inside of course). lol
