Ok, the DJ doesn't know - he said he didn't have any cake & that we all get these kinds of weddings, chin up & move on.
The wedding coordinator said she was in & out that night, & never heard anything about it. She said she's going to ask the staff about it.
I finally just called him. He didn't have a rude tone with me or anything. (After listening to his voice mail again, he did in fact say it was the worst cake that anyone there had.) Anyway, he said that even the kids didn't like it. That one kid came up to him and said it tasted like paper
Well, I just apologized over & over & said that I didn't know what could have gone wrong, 'cause I tested it and it was fine then. He said he's not one to complain
but he just had to let me know since every single person at the wedding thought the cake was terrible. I said I appreciate his honesty & feedback.
I then asked him about the 1-year anniversary cake, I asked him if he still wanted it, or perhaps wanted it in a different flavor. He said, no, I don't think it was the flavor, and yes, we still want the cake.
I mean, if it was the worst cake they've ever had - why on earth would you want another one? If it were me & I had disgusting cake I would just say no thank you to the freebie. It's not like he's losing out on money or anything by turning it down. I just thought that was odd.
Anyway, I will be sending out their coupon for their free anniversary cake, and will probably put a some (wedding-ish) sugar cookies in there as well.
He didn't ask for a refund or anything (which I thought he would!).
So that's that. I think I will now add a simple syrup to my cakes from now on. I've already started experimenting - and I think it will help.
Geez this is tough. I don't know if I'm cut out for this!!
