Yes it happens to me. Once I took a cake to a family party. And my family loves cake. But they did not cut the cake until finally when people started leaving I said I am cutting the cake and taking my cake stand. They were all like it's to pretty to eat. I was like I don't care I worked for 2 days so people would eat the thing. I had mixed feelings. Happy they loved it that much but upset no one wanted to eat it. Besides it was my favorite recipe...I wanted some cake-lol.
