Apparently this fall was the season for cake fails, because ours got dropped by the caterer as they brought it in so we actually didn’t get our cake at all! They scrounged together a bunch of random desserts for us, so it worked out, but still… Glad you guys are able to laugh about it now as well, what else can we do right?

haha in the first picture it looks pretty crooked, but not anywhere near as bad as it sounded from your story.  glad you didn’t let it ruin your day


also, i like in the pictures of you guys cutting it where yousee it from the side, it looks like cinderella and the prince are running to get away from the falling over part

wow, at least you got a refund and it tasted well. πŸ˜€

I had a cake disaster at my wedding too. we hired a first time cater to save money. yup, they were a new company and this was their first wedding so got a huge discount. everythign turned out amazing except this…

It did taste amazing though! and yes, it could have been worse but it looked homemade by a very inexperienced baker in my opinion. I was surprised because this couple who made it has serious talent. but, the cake was so amazing tasting so I got over it. but, I guess they put little while chocolate beads in the cake (?) that are a choking hazard for children. um, that wasnt fun having to explain, we had a lot of kids at our wedding.

oh and to make it even “better” the clean up crew (which were appointed people from my family who agreed days before to clean up and I gave them specific instructions) threw away my leftover cake. yup, threw it away! they said that they didnt hvae a container to put it in so just threw it away! SERIOUSLY!? I had pretty much starved myself until the wedding and was mostly looking forward to spending the day after my wedding my indulging in large amounts of cake! I only had like 3 bites of that cake! plus, guess what, no top tier for our anniversary!

Speaking of anniversary cake, I had a cake made for our anniversary that was supposed to look like the top teir of our wedidng cake (since we didnt have one). this is what they made:


not great but also not awful. but, we taste it and guess what? it freaking tastes awful. we spit it out. it tasted like a beef jerky stick with icing. wow, so, DH and I are sticking to my cakes instead of ordering them anymore. We just have bad luck with cakes I think πŸ˜€

I’m so glad you received a refund. There is no excuse for a professional baker not using the proper infrastructure to support the cake.

Sorry to hear about your cake disaster!!! πŸ™ I’m glad you got a refund!!!

The pics aren’t showing up for me though! Phooey!!!

We didn’t really know what we wanted for our cupcakes so we told our baker to surprise us (I mean we saw her portfolio of cupcakes, they were all beautiful!!!) and surprise us she did. Eveyone raved about how tasty they were but they certainly weren’t much to look at: 

We decided the gray ones looked like mushrooms from Super Mario Bros. and the yellow ones looked like you could play tic-tac-toe on them. The big one we cut was supposed to have a pretty “F” on it but you couldn’t really tell, it was more of a shape then an “F.” Oh well *shrugs* I guess that’s what we get for not being specific. They really did taste amazing though, so there’s that. πŸ™‚
