So I just got this email today... I have heard that others on here have recieved hoax emails about cakes, does this sound like one of them? I have not replied and I think I may not...

Hi,

I will like you to bake me a chocolate or a strawberry cake of 5 tier that can serve approximately 250 guest or more, and I want the cake to be decorated with pink roses and the cake should be covered in fondant or butter cream and let there be an inscription be writing on one of the cake as (Happy married Life) and i want you to pack them in different boxes after ready for pick up. And I want you to have the cake ready for pick-up on 5th of December 2009, 11 o clock A.M. So let me know if you can fill in the date, once i have your reply i will forward all the details and the picture sample of the cake i will like you to bake for me. I await your reply soon.

Thanks and God bless.

Bill...

Yes. Without reading more than 4 words into it.

Doesn't sound right to me. Besides who wants a un-cake person putting together a 5 tier cake on their own.

Something Smells Fishy to me and it is not the cake. icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif

"and let there be an inscription be writing on one of the cake as (Happy married Life)"
