So, I was watching a rerun of Cake Boss this morning and watched (jaw dropped) as the bride walked into the bakery and, after apparently hating her cake, took the surrounding piping bags and largely trashed it!!
Thinking about it more, it all seemed to stem from the fact that at the consultation, both the Bride and her Mother had totally different wants for the wedding cake. So my question is, has anyone ever dealt with this situation before and how did you manage it? I'd want to personally give the bride what she wants - it's her day - but it gets more awkward if mum is paying for the cake as well. Thus far, I've only dealt with brides themselves and (touch wood), they have all been lovely but having seen this, I am planning for the worst in advance and would really appreciate some words of wisdom!
Many thanks! :-)
