I'm just curious if anyone else has ever done this. I had a request for a sheet cake to feed 100 people. I mistakenly read the dates of March 25, for February 25th.
I delivered the cake this morning only to find out my dates were off. No worries, I took the cake to work with me and fed it to 100 happy middle school students. Has anyone else ever done this or am I the only Dumb @ss on the planet?

I have never done it...but I have to say Kudo's to you for admitting it and for turning around and taking it to the kids. At least all your hard work was appreciated!! And just think of this cake as the "practice" cake, the next one will be better!!
I have to say though, I had something embarrasing happen yesterday. I was baking cakes, and I overfilled my pan and had batter EVERYWHERE!! In the oven, on the rack, sides of the pan...everywhere!! I couldn't beleive I had done that....guess I just wasn't paying any attention to what I was doing!! I seriously felt like a dummy!! Like I had never baked a cake before. My DH was just laughing his fool head off. Ah well, everybody has an off day. thumbs_up.gif

I once made a cake that was covered in fresh fruit a day ahead of time! Only figured it out once the cake was done and fortunately it kept unitl the next day OK. Look at it this way, you co-workers now know what a great baker you are icon_smile.gif

I think I would much rather it happen this way, than the opposite way. icon_smile.gif

I've never done that, but I delivered a cake to the wrong location once. Right name of place, wrong city. THAT was stressful!

Totally did something similar, I was competing in a local cupcake competition, baked up 2 dozen mini fresh ginger spice cupcakes with bavarian cream filling, vanilla bean SMBC and homemade butterscotch. All organic, all gourmet. Got in a cab, paid the $10 to get there, I walked into the place and there was nobody there. Realized the competition was the following week. icon_cry.gif

I ended up giving the cupcakes to a homeless dude outside, hopped back into the cab (another $10) and went home.
