I occassionally make cakes just for fun to take to work. I made a raspberry white chocolate cake and took that in yesterday.
I always have this one woman who will rave about how great my cake is, and then ask me for the recipe so she can duplicate it. She's one of those people who wants to compete with everyone and do things better. Ugh. I just don't care to share cake stuff, because they can go take the classes and find their own recipes. Anyways, when she asks, I usually say "its on the box" as I do use the mixes and doctor them. She has come back to me on 3 separate occassions and told me her cakes don't come out like mine. I simply tell her "you gotta add the love" (something I saw here on cc and stole for my line - thank you to whover that was).
Yesterday - she came back to me after having a slice of my cake and asked me how I got the raspberries in there and my cake was still white and not red. Instead of telling her it was flavoring, I told her the following: "I use raspberry eggs. They feed chickens a strict diet of raspberries, and their eggs come out with this great flavor. Its a little known secret that most bakers won't share with customers." She asked where I bought them and I told her she had to ask for them at the store, as they don't stock them on the shelves, but likely have some in storage. I was clearly making this up on the spot - I can't keep a straight face for the life of me. I heard from others later in the day that she was spreading my 'secret' around the office, to which everyone else enjoyed the story.
Which brings me to today - turn on my computer, open my email and I have a message that says "I went to wegmans, and they have never heard of raspberry eggs. They suggested I ask you more information about them."
That is hilarious!
Okay....I am ROFL! I just LOVE it!
"I use raspberry eggs. They feed chickens a strict diet of raspberries, and their eggs come out with this great flavor. Its a little known secret that most bakers won't share with customers."
For some reason, as a vegan, I find your answer hilarious!
Oh...My... Raspberry eggs!!! I wish I could think on my feet that quick. PRICELESS!
LMAO!! I love it
I don't find myself laughing out loud at very many things, but I couldn't help myself. Even my husband thought it was funny.
Love it! She is so gullible you could have lots of fun with her
ROFLMAO! i have seriously got to get some graphic software for all these great stories on here. picturing a chicken laying a giant raspberry in a nest. a post a couple days ago, had a woman asking for "live" ingredients and my overactive imagination had a chicken popping out of the top of a cake like the blackbird pie in the nursery rhymes. some people are so clueless. OP- next time she comes to chit chat, tell her they fond a new study of the word gullible...saying it slowly sounds like green beans. see how many times she tries to make it do just that.
OMG that is awsome!!!!! Love the quick wit in the future do you think i could use your story I have a similar person i would love to use that on and see what happens GREAT JOB!!!
