There are other youtube videos called "wedding cake fail."

I'm sorry but what kind of an idiot tries to move a fully assembled cake onto the plate AFTER it is completely decorated??? Especially on live TV? It was bound to happen.

This was a setup all the way.

Hmmmm...I don't think any experienced cake decorator would attempt to do this so carelessly. It almost looks like he did it purposely and very sloppy...right?

I agree.

scrumdiddlycakes Posted 18 Mar 2013 , 11:16pm

Seems really fake to me as well, I don't understand why a baker would willingly show a live TV audience that he was an idiot though.

This isn't one of those businesses where 'any publicity is good publicity', lol.

-K8memphis Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 12:24am

what would an accident look like

DeniseNH Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 12:33am

Totally Fake.  You could tell, just look at the people around the table.  Big fake hair and the cake on the floor is minuscule so it was loaded with fake tiers.

Annabakescakes Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 3:47am

I think it was just a display, so he wasn't upset, but it looked real to me. It clearly got caught on the decoration thingy on the table.  I think the big fake hair was just a product of the time.

remnant3333 Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 4:00am

Even I have enough sense to know not to move a cake that high!! I can not believe that that woman was a cake baker. She should have known better!!!! So you think it was a dummy cake?

RedInLove Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 4:14am

Why would he move the cake? Why not just leave it on the spinny thing? It wasn't bothering anybody there.

 

I recently read a decorator's post here that a MOB tried to move a 5-tier fully set up cake just after the decorator left the room. The decorator actually heard the whole thing and ran back to find cake all over the floor and all over the MOB, who was caught red handed with the cake plate and bottom tier still in her hand. Seriously! Who moves a gigantic cake by themselves?!?

 

The cake in this video seemed too lightweight for it to have been a full cake. He did get caught up on whatever that was on the table, I can't say for sure if I think the fall was staged or not, but I definitely don't think it was all cake. Still. Who does that?!?

-K8memphis Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 4:21am

i just thought maybe they were demonstrating the revolving turntable & he was moving the finished product to it's board?

 

i don't know

 

ok if it was staged--what was the purpose

 

what is it about big hair to indicate it's a fake out

 

this is making me laugh

 

so if some of the cakes were dummies it was a planned cake dump

 

this is so funny to me icon_lol.gif

 

my stomach hurts from laughing--my dog is coming to check on me 'cause i'm laughing so hard

K8memphis youare cracking me up even more than that silly video icon_biggrin.gif

LNW Posted 19 Mar 2013 , 9:03pm

It looked real to me.  I did have trouble with man or woman too so I can't poke fun at remnant ;)  I figured it out once he came around the table though.  That link leads to a lot of other real wedding cake fails that are really sad too.  This was just a demo though.  A really poorly done one.
