The only posts in this thread that I read thoroughly was the OP's. I skimmed through the rest. I don't recall reading or seeing anything about what the BRIDE said about the cake or should I say pictures of the cake and what they ultimately did for cake that night.

Just curious.....

I've come clean and confessed all my mistakes (OK not all icon_lol.gif )
This is a new cake week I only have a replica of the "Black Pearl" and a standard 3-tier with 1/2 sheet so I actually have some human time, however I have a busy week next week (REALLY BUSY!)
I have learned valuable, COSTLY lessons as well as humilty and even if I have to pull all nighters every night I vow "This will never happen again!"

Thanks to everyone who was able to help, who extended good wishes and hugs and offered constructive criticism I appreciate the attention!

Joan

P.S.
I have since updated my profile as well as added a few pictures (Old & New)

OP, I don't care how bad things got, that cake was not awful. The MOB had no right to talk to you like that. I can't imagine what a rush wedding cake would look like that would be any better. I know that there is no way a grocery store cake would taste as good as yours. You do great work and this horrid MOB needs to be forgotten.

I agree with jlynnw......no adult needs to act as this woman did. You handled yourself with such professionalism and class.

I believe that too many people put WAY too much emphasis on the wedding and not the marriage... my wedding was only 4 years ago. I used two frozen cheesecakes from target. Total $30.... We are still happily married and I don't even think about the cake...except that it tasted yummy.

If you forget about the brides awful ribbon choice, you can see that your fondant looks smooth and the piping is beautiful. Aside from minor imperfections (the height of the short layer was all I could see) the cake is beautiful. Put some flowers on that bad boy and it could have saved it if the MOB wasn't such a B****.

So sorry you had to go through that... BTW, I absolutely LOVE the red and green piped art deco type flowery cake you did.... icon_biggrin.gif I only hope that my cakes can look as good as yours someday!

So she was more interested in ruining her daughters day, then looking for an alternative.



What supermarket has wedding cakes on hand?

Sounds like a money issue and she was trying to come out looking like the victim.

I thought the 70s did that!



70's was Farrah Fawcett (and yeah, I DID look hot with Farrah hair!).



I had the Farrah hair, and my sister had a smokin' Dorothy Hamill bowl cut! Between the two of us we were super foxy!!! icon_lol.gif

I would just like to ask why the cake was not viewed before the wedding?
Just wondered because when ever I make a wedding cake I always have it ready to view on the Thursday evening (If the wedding is at the weekend) so that if there are any problems or things that need changing I have plenty of time to change it before the big day.

Because fruitcake is not the standard cake in the US and rolled icings are only now starting to be more widely used. Most customers would consider a cake that is finished Thursday for a Saturday wedding to not be fresh. It is the norm for the cake to be finished Friday or even Saturday morning, just before delivery.
