Has anyone come across this news story? Sounds like there's quite an interesting back story to it!
oh my gosh--the nerve of a genuine party pooper--
there was a case in west memphis arkansas i beleve it was where a chick got jail time for putting exlax in the icing and got peeps sick--this is bad but it could be worse--
this is the worst manners in the world--
talking about doing this sure--making one to get out frustration with leftover cake or something yeah maybe--but to deliver it in sucha sneaky way--horrid
i'm so torn--i'm trying to be horrified but it's ridiculously funny
edited to say--exlax is a brand of laxative
From what I read, the customer already owed the cake maker money for other services and hadn't paid her. Then the customer shows up with a cake voucher for $50 and wanted a cake for that price even though she still owed the baker money. The baker gave her a $30 cake because the client asked for Chocolate and was not specific about the style. lol Something to that effect.
This is what the baker posted on her FB:
Don't be stupid and ask for photos (with a CAKE voucher you won) get angry at me when I have to cancel because of the weather.... reschedule the next day.... don't show up and make some lame arse excuse about sending a message and making a call to my cell (bull****!!) then demand a $50 cake with the voucher - then remembering you owe me $20 for travel to take your family photos in the first place.... your left with a $30 voucher and you want a cake still?? ok cool - give me some ideas?? - oh wait you have none apart from wanting chocolate, I have a brilliant idea for your cake!!!! - so here it is your turd cake! Hope you learn your lesson.
AAlso of note is that the baker is a self-described hobbyist and apparently does not run a business.
That was in very poor taste.
Although it's perfect for women who are sleeping with someone else's husband….
what's awful is the honoree at the event was not even a participant in the deal gone bad--she just happened to be the sister --
this could have been pretty funny but that's the wrong way to right a wrong
cakedom's flag is flying at half mast--not cool
and basically over twenty bucks or something? smh
This was done in very poor taste. The baker may claim to be a hobbyist but she is selling cakes and issuing vouchers so it is a business; may not be a legal business but a business none the less. Maybe she will give more thought to her marketing strategy and stop issuing vouchers, then it would be as simple as not providing the customer with a cake until she is paid up. Of course then there is the other side of me that thinks the cake was done really well.
Great publicity for the business (hobby) owner.
Who opens a cake box After everyone arrives? not likely. smells fishy.
AI'm generally prone to finding stuff like this hilarious, and this is no exception. I personally wouldn't let someone get me that riled up to do that, but it's freaking hilarious.
