OK, so I made a cake today to thank a friend who took care of my dog last weekend. I decided on a classic, but relatively simple cake that consists of a lot of roses. Since I have a 1 year old to chase around all day, it took me a looong time to make the cake, icing and to decorate. Anyway, my friend wasn't home when I went to surprise her but I was able to catch her on her cell phone before she went home so she picked it up at my house. Her husband and little girl were with her and they all oohed and aahed over it so I was pleased that they liked it. Anyway, I meant to ask her to take a picture of it when she got home b/c my camera had just pooped out on me so I called her when I remembered, which was about 10 minutes after she left. She lives in my neighborhood so I figured I would catch her before they ate any of it, esp. since she had said they had just come from eating. When I called her, she started to laugh so I figured that the must have already dug in and started eating it, but noooooo, I was wrong. My beautiful cake had been demolished byher husband and then her daughter! It seems he got the cake home, plunked it down and promptly stuck a finger into a rose and smashed it all the way to the base! Their daughter thought that was cute and started messing with it, too. I'm sorry, maybe I'm just too sensitive, but I wish she hadn't told me what they had done. I mean, I put a lot of work and time into that stinkin' cake only to have them smash it? It's not like it was meant to be a smash cake, you know? And these are our friends. I would never allow anyone in my house to do that. It almost feels disrespectful. And I made it for her, not for her hubby. If my husband did anything like that I would be livid! Oh well, it's over. I guess I'm just a little disappointed, that's all. Thanks for the vent.
