My cookies are not cheap, but she really wanted something nice for her son's party, so I used the impression kit you can buy for sports and made fondant covered football and soccer ball cookies as well as highly detailed, large glace iced cookies with a hand holding a scroll and wrote the graduates name and year on them.
I was helping with the hot food about an hour into the party and saw my customer's mother and aunt hovering over by the dessert table. Next thing I know the aunt is running to the kitchen and grabbing paper towels.
I went over and saw that they had dumped an entire glass of water onto the platter of cookies! The cookies were sitting in water, already ruined and past saving. I went over to ask what happened and the mother snapped that SHE WOULD FIX IT!
I saw my customer (her daughter) over there later looking at what was left of the soggy cookies with a puzzled look on her face. She asked me later if there were only 2 cookies left and when I said yes she looked puzzled again. She had ordered enough to hopefully bring some home, but the ones that were left were all melted.
I don't think her mom told her what happened and with all the resentment her mom was displaying about her daughter paying someone to cater the food (me) I am really wondering if destroying the cookies was a deliberate act.
Should I mention it this week after her mom goes home?
