I had a customer pick up two large sheet cakes yesterday for a company SuperBowl party. He arrives in his work pickup truck. When I show him the two cakes (12x18x4) he looks at the size of the boxes and askes, in all seriousness

"Can I just stack these boxes on top of each other in the front seat?"

yeah, you go with that icon_rolleyes.gif

Needless to say, I didn't let him. I waited patiently while he cleaned out a place on the floorboard.

What a fricken idiot.....I've had a customer show up with golf clubs and a stroller in the back hatch and placed the cake box back there with the clubs and stroller bouncing around...Yah...

Why can't you stack sheet cakes? I do it all the time. the 12X18 size won't move around a lot of it's a little unlevel.

I don't allow customers to transport cakes in the front seat ever. Well, not if I see it anyway.

do you mean stack the cakes, or stack the cakes once they are in the boxes?

These cakes were already in the boxes. I just don't trust the box to hold the weight of a 12x18 cake. They were really pretty heavy and I'm pretty confident that it would have crushed the boxes.

Harry Potter reference to a person not a witch. "a regular person that doesn't know any better"

A muggle is a non-cake person. someone not 'in the know'. Not on the bus.

Although the word had been in use for years, the Harry Potter series popularized the word muggle.... a muggle is a non-magic person. ordinary human beeing, not wizards and witches.

I had someone pick up a cake on a moped once.

I once had a customer come to pick up a wedding cake in a very small 2-door car, with four people in it, all of whom had a bunch of stuff with them (the trunk was packed, too)...oh, and the wedding dress laid across their laps!

Masturbaker, I also refer to these types of folks as "cake civilians" (I'm a military mom). icon_rolleyes.gif

I had a couple in a big 4 door pick up truck come and pick up a 1/2 sheet graduation cake. Had a lot of decor on it, and tassles etc, The wife carefully picks it up, I walk out with her. She is very cautious each step she takes. She goes to the husband, who is still behind the wheel of the truck, reaches up, hands him the cake and says. "hold this while I get in" He takes the cake, and says no problem, I'll just throw it back here, and he did!! He literally tossed it into the back seat. Needless to say, A fight ensued while she finished getting in. I went back inside as they drove away. Hmm...... Not sure what the cake must have looked like when they got where they were going. I had offered to deliver the cake for free when they placed the order. I'm thinking next time, she might take me up on that! LOL.

"Muggle" was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2003, where it is said to refer to a person who is lacking a skill.

Harry Potter is my religion (I converted from Jedi a few years ago lol)

Not to answer for Leah, but I always tell people to NEVER place a cake on a car seat. They are not level by any means and the stopping and accelerating are much more likely to damage a cake when it is already tilted than if it were on a flat surface.
