Ugh. Sorry to hear it. If you were closer, I’d outsource my frustration and volunteer to ring his neck for you.  Win for me, win for you, not so much for baker, but screw him. 🙂

Can the coordinator at the reception site get you a different baker, and hear your complaints?

I don’t want to see the coordinator force this guy to do it, because if he can’t do this scroll and tries it, he’s going to screw it up I’d almost bet.

What kind of scroll, out of curiosity? Do you have a picture?

I hope it doesn’t turn out too badly.  If it does you can always put it up on CakeWrecks so other people can share in your misery Wink

Hmm…. if he says he can’t do it, I’d be inclined to listen to him lest you wind up on cake wrecks. Unless the cake design is majorly important to you, have him make the icing a pretty color and leave it. Nobody will remember you cake unless it’s spectacularly awesome or awful and I’m afraid if he says he can’t do the scrollwork, you insist… you’ll wind up in spectacularly awful.

you should definitely not let him do it, it he says he can’t….it could be horrendous!!

at least he knows his capabilities, but he should have told u loooong ago i agree!!

maybe he can do the plain bands around the bottom of each layer like in the first pic, and then u can add some pretty fresh flowers (or fake)….that’s what i’m doing, since i’m too afraid to end up with a ‘cake wreck’ lol which is a high possibility where i’m from
