I know we all get these on a weekly basis, but this one just deserves to be shared. Really.

Here goes. Have fun, and enjoy the laugh. That is, if you can decipher what she's actually trying to say through all the misspellings. And yes, I *think* this is a serious request.

Hello, I am having a halloween wedding an I would like to tell u a little about what were lookin for. were having a halloween wedding but its gonna be a scary one not just like for the halloween colors.

In the wedding me being the bride is ...goin to be dressed as a witch! an the groom is being freddy so we was thinkin of maybe havein a castle or haunted house castle with a graveyard around it, an makein half theme freddy an half theme witch. We would also like the cake to look like its been split in the middle by freddys claws looking like it blood in the claw marks. Also we would like it to be in tiers atleast 3-4 tiers. The main top would be a small one with our weddin topper that we can keep for our first anniversary. then the second one dont matter the size but we have our own haunted house an we would like our name to be on that part of the cake which would be like this" Slaughter Yard Wedding" The main bottom would be a scary graveyard. please send any extra ideas u can think of, price of how much you think it will range from, pics of privious bwork, sketch of how u think our cake will look. thanks date is septer 17th so need something soon thanks

If you think you are up for the challange please let me no, i have a few ppl that has offered to do our cake but of course im lookin for the best deal so tell me about what ur price range is an how much u think a cake like this will cost an also the other cake decription how much it would cost. I would love to see pics of ur work our wedding is not until sept so u got plenty of time to be creative. any ideas feel free to let me no.

I am thinkin there will be aprox 100ppl or less. Please let me no if ur up for the challange an if u have any suggestions feel free to let me no Please send a price quote an pics of your work. thanks so much!!!

Well, you know, sorry, I really don't have "plenty of time to be creative" because I've been booked for September since late February.

And "AT LEAST" 3 or 4 tiers - for less than 100 people?

She "has a few ppl that has offered to do our cake", so girl, I wish you the best, go contact one of them. Because I'm not TOUCHING this one. Even if I wasn't already completely booked for the entire month. Did I already say, booked since FEBRUARY?
Plenty of time.

Yep, it's quite deleted. After I posted the content here. LOL. I feel like bookmarking cake wrecks for the next couple months and just waiting for this one to pop up.

This should be an easy cake though. If it looks like you drop kicked it, scooped it back up and then added some tombstones it will be perfect.

I've seen this request before!...honestly, I think is a scam. I wish I could remember who the OP was, but it was almost the same words.

I'd delete if I was you.

It's one thing to not have perfect spelling, but the grievous errors in that spamessage are nauseating.

Glad you avoided the scam it was or the headache (if it had been real)!!! icon_smile.gif

icon_biggrin.gif it's either spam, or the poor thing is STILL trying to find someone to do her cake... icon_confused.gif

Yeah, that's possible. She is "lookin to find the best deal" after all, and she mentioned that *I'd* (ha) have plenty of time to be creative, since the wedding wasn't until Sept. 17. Maybe she first posted that a year ago and now, well, It's astounding... time is fleeting...Madness takes its toll.... Let's do the Time Warp again!

I also laughed out loud. I kept thinking what is with this girl. I "KNOW" some people misspell a word or leave a letter out, but it's a pet peeve of mine when it's a constant thing.

Spelling like that and her being a witch. Don't witches go to school to learn about spells???????? ok, so that was corny, but it wasn't too bad either. lol

See, now if you had that email still, I'd want to have a little fun with her. Give her some outrageous price and see what her comeback would be.

There's the thread this cropped up in before, and the OP from that thread is an Ohioan. Maybe this *is* a real person who's still trying to find someone to make her cake.... icon_confused.gif

Oh wow, okay, now looking at the former thread, and that it's from Ohio, I really am thinking this person is serious and they have been trying to find a poor schmuck to do this cake for them since January!!! And now I totally get the line that says "you have plenty of time to be creative".

Oh wow.

I'm thinking about contacting the OP of the first thread and see if she's had any other contact with this person.

I was just going to say maybe she's been looking for some to do this cake since February.

Really? Okay, we're digging into the truth here. Are you in Ohio? Because if not, then it must be a joke.
