    I feel sorry for the brides who order custom-made, elaborate fondant cakes (like the plaid one) and get something totally different, thrown together, with dollar store icing and food coloring.

    I know they can get a refund, but I don't think that makes up for the horror of having a wedding cake that looks like it was made by a 5 year old.

    I kind of think that could be partly the bride's fault. If you take a picture to the grocery store, you probably shouldn't expect your cake to look like the picture. If you do research and go to a reputable bakery, then chances are you'll get what you asked for.

    ^ I think I've heard that that particular cake was made by a professional baker, who unfortunately happened to get utterly wasted the night before while making the cake. Could be an urban legend, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Kids These Days

    "They just grow up so fast." [wiping away tear]

    "I mean, first Holly was asking for thongs for her 8th birthday, and now her very own Playboy-themed party at 12. Wow. Can you believe it? I'm just so...so... proud.

    [blowing nose] "I mean, every parent wants her little girl to grow up dreaming big dreams, padding her trainer bra, and looking to attract men as a means of personal validation, but to see it actually happening...[sniffle] I'm sorry, it's just a dream come true. Why, in another 6 years she could even be on The Girls Next Door - not that I want to get her hopes up too much, of course; there's no telling how much longer Heff's gonna be around, after all.

    "I know, right? It IS unbelievable. You know, the Smiths over there made their Jenny wait until she was sixteen to have her playmate party. Isn't that awful?


    "I mean, geez, how stifling can some parents get? Although, to be fair, I hear they had a great pole-dancing instructor come in for the girls. In fact, I need to get that number for Holly's party, if you'll excuse me..."

    Now, Karen P. & Sarah G., remember to keep everything in perspective: these cakes still aren't as bad as this one.

    UPDATE: Apparently the prosti-tot pole-dancing class includes an age-inappropriate audience. Check it out, and don't miss all the priceless expressions on the kids in the crowd!

    My mom is a cake decorator at a casino in Las Vegas. She does a lot of celebrity stuff.

    Does she get any bizarre requests?

    Not so much because she does a lot of the promotional stuff- the cakes you see presented to celebrities for birthdays, events, etc. When she was working at private bakeries, she'd get some odd ones. They were mostly peen cakes for crazy bridal showers.
