Heehee, Turtlelady and it is even nicer if you aren't the one having to make the mess and serve the darn cake, haha! I hate those plastic disposable gloves and how your nose always wants to run as soon as you put them on to start cutting the darn cake.
Gosh I don't know how many times I make a cake for something and get to serve it up too. Geesh why even bother to dress up for these things. Hhmn, that gives me an idea, next time, I am going to tell the folks that if I, the maker and a guest, have to serve, I am going to wear track pants and an ugly t-shirt, haha!
Oh gosh and please explain to me why anyone would spend a fortune on an anniversary party and then buy the cheapest and flimsiest of paper plates, you know the kind, they fold up in the centre when you try to carry them, geesh! Hhmn, how many times have you been handed one of those little plastic knifes to cut a cake? Haha, I think we should all keep a change of clothes, an apron and a proper knife and server and some good paper plates or china in the back of the car, haha!
A friend of mine did a cake for a formal wedding. The person stuck with cutting the cake was new staff, he actually tried to cut the big ones in wedges while the cake was all attached. Heehee, picture that, a 16 inch round cake, 8 inch deep wedge, but skinny. Good thing one of the other servers went to the manager, haha!
I remember one Wilton post where the mother of the bride insisted that the round cakes be cut in wedges so each person would get the same amount of icing, hhmn!
Ahh, it is never dull that is for sure! If only all brides went for cakes on separate pedestals, it would make life so much easier, haha!
