I can't wait to see my first disaster...

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
As soon as they send me pictures, I'll post them! LOL!

Here's what happened:

Mom picked up her daughter's 12th birthday cake.
2 tier stacked, BC with fondant polka dots in pink and purple.

She was thrilled.

Cake made it to their house fine.

They moved it from the van, into the house, up the stairs, onto the dining room table.

Ding Dong! goes the doorbell.

Guests arriving! Mom and birthday girl welcome the folks in...and realize ...

.
.
.
that the family beagle isn't welcoming the guests with them.

Uh oh.

Mom and birthday girl run upstairs.

They hear doggie toe-nails ON THE TABLE!!!

And see doggie jumping OFF the table.

Cake is fine.
Well, except for the doggie size bite out of the top tier!! LOL

I didn't ask if the cake tasted good...I'm not sure they actually ate it! icon_biggrin.gif

I've called mom already to remind her to send pictures!! icon_smile.gif
Too funny!

lol That sounds so familiar. That actually happened to me at my house one time BEFORE the order was picked up. I had moved a cake in it's box into the dining room out of the bakery because it was hot in there and still messy, and I had church that morning, and there was a miscommunication between me and my hubby. Well, the cat ate the top off the cake while we were gone and when I got home I saw a small grease spot on top of the box and my heart sank. I knew what had happened. What was wierd was that the customer wanted me to just "cut" the top off and re-ice and decorate it! I told her no way. I asked her if she could wait a day to get her cake and she was fine with it. I lucked out. Now, I am extremely cautious! lol

I'm not one who freaks out over things like this--so I hope your client isn't either. I would have casually made sure the CHOMPED part was in the back and served the other tiers.

People smoochy face with dogs all the live-long-day and don't think a thing about it. I have a brother who actually holds treats in his mouth for his dog to take.

I'd like to see pictures too!

Doggies--they just want cake too!

Ummm, no offense, but I really don't want to eat at your house icon_sad.gif

I love dogs, but I do not smooch them, I do not allow them to lick my face, and I always wash my hands between petting dogs and handling food. Same goes for cats or any other animal. I would be extremely upset if I learned that I was served food that had previously been munched on by an animal.

Sorry, I was responding to kansaslaura, not the OP. I should have made that clear.

In Kansaslaura's defense - she didn't give the cake to the customer. The customer was the one that said just cut off the top tier. She made the customer a new cake.

First of all I have nothing to do with this cake. I didn't make it, I didn't buy it. I was just commenting on the OP.

My house is more than clean enough to satisfy a health inspection, just FYI. Been in the business way too long, you get in the habit, you know? tanstaafl, you need to read things more carefully and not jump to conclusions. My comment was simply to make light of the situation. No, I would not have a problem if the customer did not serve the one tier the dog got to and served the rest.

I guess I look around and see way bigger things to worry about. And just for the record, I don't want you to eat at my house either--I much prefer laid back fun people, not people who are going to judge and pick at things.

Have a great, sanitary dog-free day! thumbs_up.gif

Sorry, I put the wrong name down as I was responding to tanstaafl's poste. My post was supposed to be for Mindy1975. I scrolled down and must have misread the name. Anyhow, I am agreeing with you on the dog thing. No big thing for me either. I am a pet owner as well and clean my work area really well when I am making my cakes or food for my family. Just because someone has pets doesn't make them unsanitary.

Mama, that wasn't aimed at you, sorry if it seemed so. Life is simply too short to have to spend the time constantly pulling wedgies out over ever single thing! Have a great one!!

I cant wait to see your pictures!! IT sounds like something I would have to watch my beagle over too!! It is because of that right there, that she is sent to her nanny's when I am baking a cake, having a party, or bbq. icon_biggrin.gif the little fart is just too sneaky!!
laughter isn't the best medicine. It's the cure.
