Okay, my niece came over today, all excited to tell me about her new job, decorating cakes/cupcakes at Sams Club.
Her first day there: She tells them she is experienced with buttercream, knows the tips and what they do... etc..
They try to show her how to fill a piping bag anyway.. she is like WTF?? Apparently the lady was making a huge mess.. so my niece takes the bag from the lady and says.. you fill it like this, to prevent the huge air bubbles. Lady asks where she learned to do that.. niece replies my aunt.
day continues.. niece is piping swirls on cupcakes.. The assistant manager comes over (same lady from above) and say... UMMM... you are doing those too neatly. Niece asks.. oh am I not doing them fast enough? The lady replies.. Oh you are doing them fast enough, just making them look to professional
Bless my niece she looks at the lady and says... I learned from a pro.. and she taught me to have CAKE PRIDE. So, I cant in good conscience just slap on some icing and deliberately make it look like a 2 year old did it. So maybe I should start by working with the bread .. then with an evil grin. she looked at the lady and said, My aunt also taught me how to make great breads.
She did bread the rest of the day.. and the manager came over later and said, "she is so afraid you are going to take her job, she's been doing these cakes for 3 years and you already know more than her, and you you have a steady hand when piping. Keep up the good work.
She makes me so proud!!!!
I love this Tesso! I feel proud for you; your niece sounds like a great girl!
Don't you just love people who TRY to squash others down just to make themselves look better!?! . GOOOooooo Auntie Tesso and niece!!
What a horrible lady.
But it sounds like your niece can handle it, though. Way to go
So glad to hear she stuck up for herself.
Good for her, and good for you for teaching her the proper ways...
great, show them. lol
"Too professional"????? How in the world could she form her lips to say such a thing??? Your niece is awesome!
Bless my niece she looks at the lady and says... I learned from a pro.. and she taught me to have CAKE PRIDE.
That is SO AWESOME!! You must be a very proud auntie!!!!!!
What a great story! Actually, that line would make a great t-shirt...."CAKE PRIDE!"
Tesso, Sounds like your niece has inherited some of your moxie.
TerriLynn, I'll take one of those shirts in a large, please.
She sounds like a smart cookie! Glad she has a good influence like you!
I thought you guys would find it as funny as I did. I'll show her your responses when she comes over this weekend. It will make her happy to see them. She was so blown away by the woman tellling her to "slop" the icing up.
Yes, I am very proud of her!!
What a great story! I love it!
So uh... how do you fill the pastry bag without getting air bubbles?
