Most not bad, though I do love the "can you bake square or oval cakes?" and the "can we cut the slices in half to serve more for less?"

I like how they call cake dummies "artistic cakes" lol


yeah, what's up with the square or oval cakes?? Are there people out there saying..."Nope,sorry...I only do round cakes!'


Or what about this..................Will our cake be frozen? How much time does it need to thaw before serving?

do baker's freeze fully decorated, stacked cakes and then just deliver them frozen????

Seriously ... yes. I don't recall where I read it, but yes, I read of bakeries that charge extra for a square cake because all of their cakes are round and it takes extra labor to cut the round ones into squares.

I swear to god I'm not making it up.

I would answer that with 'you can cut it as small as you like, would you like me to charge you for the extra servings you're getting?'

mrnumoo vodka is fine to use as long as you don't mind 50 drunk kids rampaging through your house during the party.  Seriously, though, Vodka is fine.  The amount that you will use to clean your fondant should be minuscule.
