Wedding Cake Disaster. - Page 7

post #91 of 146

Also tried to find her - she has 'slipped' off the plant. Possibly a good thing judging by the article:

The mystery is solved! We now know who the baker was and she had gone with a reputable baker who had a last minute illness.

No I have not but have gone to many events. Every year on Memorial Day there is an event in DC called Rolling Thunder. It is a ride in memory of the POW's/MIA's. Over 400,000 bikes ride in this ride. There is 1 Marine that shows up every year and holds a salute for 4 hours in his dress blues no matter the weather until ever last bike has passed. Very touching.

Am I losing it or is there nothing but cake under the fondant? No crumb coat even?

post #96 of 146

I did not see a crumb coat either

And why is the sponge inside GREEN! icon_eek.gif Those layers look horrendous, and no crumb coat even?

 

I can almost forgive a "baker" who thinks they can accomplish something and can't in the decorating arena. But to "bake" something like that and expect someone to eat it? Sorry, no can do.

I think she was trying to do a rainbow cake. I want to see a pic of the cupcakes

Just another problem that arises from stealing someone else's photos and trying to pass them off as your work. I think the bride took it better than I would have. It's false advertising, plain and simple, and you just do not mess with someone's wedding. Aside from the fact that it looked nothing like the original requested cake, it looked disgusting. I've seen cakes that didn't quite hit the mark, but still at least looked edible. No way in hell would I serve that at my wedding.

 

Hopefully this story makes the rounds and people will stop ordering from her, and maybe it will serve as a warning to those who try to pass off another's work as their own when it is clearly far above their skill level.

I've seen the other stuff by the decorator who apparently did this, cakes are terrible of course but she hasn't posted this cake on her page.

I thought I read that she picked this one out on her facebook page. I've read a few articles, can't remember which one it was. If I read that wrong and this woman advertised this type of work, bride got what she got, but the baker still has no business selling wedding cakes.

As for the green cake, I get asked quite often to make coloured layers

I think I have more of a problem with the fact that in the article the bride stated the cake "smelled rancid" as well as the cupcakes. What on earth kind of cake did this woman give to this bride and why would it smell rancid??? that is unbelievably disugusting!

If this is what her other cakes looked like, and they were posted on her FB page, I have minimal sympathy for the bride (as I stated in a previous post). But yeah, regardless, this baker should not be selling her cakes.
Also, in the article she says they still have the cake and "are wondering how to dispose of it"...um, throw it in the garbage? What an awful waste. But I wouldn't eat it either, especially if it smelled bad as stated in the article. Gross.
