Should I feign rage or laugh my ass off?
Decisions, decicions.....

Why the hell is the mayor involved?

Why not a plain round cake if you don't have any instructions? This version seems like a lot of work.

Never piss off people that are handling your food?

It's a good thing the baker claims to be making cakes as a hobby. This kind of stunt will put you out of business in a hurry. I suspect that there was a pre-existing bad relationship between the parties.

Her actions have been greeted with outrage

Really? I thought it was hilarious. Kiwis don't sound like much fun.

Lipspinach: Why the hell is the mayor involved?


I was wondering the same thing. I'm guessing it's a small town so this is the biggest news there since that "dog bites man" story back in July.

It was a dick move regardless of how funny I might it. Complete overreaction.

Maybe the 'hobbyist' baker should try taffy.  That would give her something to work out her suppressed rage and aggression.

My guess is that since the client still owed her twenty bucks from a previous transaction, they were already on bad terms. Any normal baker if given nothing more to go on than chocolate would probably just make a normal chocolate cake and not get pissy. I assume. IANAB.

Reminds me of the guy who called up his local bakery and ordered a cake in the shape of a "B". The baker tells him "No problem", and bakes one up. The guy comes down the next day, and tells the baker, "That's almost perfect, but I wanted a lowercase "b". The baker says, "well, that'll take a few days, I gotta order a new cake mold."

The guy says "That's fine, call me when it's done." A few days later, he goes to the bakery, and see what the baker has done. "That looks really good, but I didn't want a "Block B, I really want a "Script B", he tells the baker. Once again, the baker is forced to tell him that it'll take a few days for a new mold.

A few days later, the baker calls the guy, and he goes down to inspect the cake. "Oh no", he says. "There's no way that this cake can have white frosting. It has to be royal blue!" The exasperated baker says "OK, fine!" It'll be ready tomorrow."

The next day, the client comes in, and the baker has a lowercase script "B" cake in royal blue. "That's PERFECT!" the client exclaims.

The baker asks "So where do you want me to ship the cake?" "Oh don't bother, the guy replies. "I'll eat it here!"

Having worked in a bakery . . .  not as a cake decorator, but just as a low level clerk . . .  one day, late on a weekday, the entire staff was out, it was just me, working at the counter.
I was suddenly pressed into service as a decorator by a desperate customer.  I explained to her in no uncertain terms that I was not a cake decorator.
She said "it's okay, just make it say Happy Birthday" . . . . .  and those were my only instructions . . .
I couldn't resist the urge to get creative.   Gave her a cake she will never forget!
So remember folks, if you are ordering a cake, make sure you tell them exactly how you want it, before it is made.

Despite everything else. the "corn" kernels are a nice touch. It's the details that make the difference.

One word, Help.  Read it, enjoy.

Rich hubby, no kids, so works to keep from being bored.  The perfect ingredient for not having any cares about making a poo cake.

A likely possibility. It's the craftsmanship that counts.

A GIS search for "here's your f**king cake" yielded much comedy gold. Some NSFW.

As someone in favor of not turning the other cheek to dickish behavior, I approve of this. Sometimes you've gotta fight dick with dick.

Thanks for the details.

You can give the baker a few points for creativity, but she did not follow through to the final conclusion.

1) Instead of using a piece of paper to have her message on, she could have used something to make it look like toilet paper.
2) Have a few fly decorations on top of the cake.

(you never get good service these days)

You never worked with brides have you? I think if you are a winy Kim Kardashian wanna be princess with a loud mouth who doesn't cooperate. I should have the legal right to hold a gun to your goddamn face and say: "Listen biatch I know it's your god damn day, You have been yelling about it for the last twenty minutes,  but here's the deal it's not your god damn day, it's the day your Dad pays enough money to buy you a farkin' house so you can dance around in yer fancy Vera Wang knock off and pretend to be some A list celebrity for 24 hours then later have sex with the poor son of a biatch who has to put up with your ass till he grows a pair of nuts and leaves you for your sexy Mexican house keeper who will gladly do anal, so sit down shut up and pick a muther frakin' colour scheme for your damn DVD menu,"

"I don't make cakes as a business. It is just a hobby and I'm taking it all with good humour."

If you are taking money from people in exchange for cakes, much less from enough people to warrant vouchers, it is a business that you built from a hobby.
