I had the weirdest cake request (and client) today. A young lady called me saying that she went to a party where I made the cakes and she really liked the taste and look of it. She wanted to know if I could make a cake designed in the shape of a certain 5 leaf (I think?), green, illegal plant. It was supposed to be a joke for a police officer friend of hers. At first I said yes BUT then she asked if I would be willing to add a special "ingredient" to the chocolate cake. That's when I told her that unfortunately I didn't think I would be the baker for her. Wow, this girl has cojones and I can't even begin to imagine the liabilities (legal and medical) behind this!!
What's your weirdest cake request?

I was asked this same question once and I said "I provide food not entertainment".

Brownies with the "extras" are a reason that college kids learn to bake.

Probably a father that smokes it right along side of his kid.

One of the other tenants in our commercial kitchen specialized in baked goods made with cannabis for customers with medical marijuana licenses. They were completely legal, at least under California law.
