Real life Horror Stories
Real life Horror Stories
Tricee's Treats LLC strongly recommends that you allow me to deliver your Specialty/wedding cake to the venue location. Especially with rapidly rising gas prices, cake delivery isn't any kind of a profit center for me. But it does give me the best chance to provide you and your guests with the best cake experience imaginable.
In case you're still tempted to save a few dollars and pick up the cake yourself, please consider this:
If you or your representative elects to pick up and set up the cake, you assume all liability and responsibility for the condition of the cake once it leaves (Tricee’s Treats LLC,) possession.
Here are some of these real-life "cake pick up horror stories."
• Cake was given to the grandmother to hold in the front seat. Unfortunately, she had a bad cold. The client brought cake back to us because Grandma sneezed all over the cake and she needed the cake re-iced.
• The groom picked up the cake and was unfortunately running late. Although he was cautioned to put cake on floor, the groom decided to put it on the front seat instead. When stopped short to avoid an accident, the cake ended up on dashboard.
• A father decided to place his daughter's sweet 16 cake in back of his covered pickup truck, because he had too much junk on his interior floors. 40 miles later, you can imagine the cake's condition.
.• A member of the bridal party picked up the cake with the family dog riding along in the van. The cake was placed on the floor of the van, despite our extreme reservations. We were told that, the dog soon jumped over back seat and had lunch. As an added bonus, dog hair was all over the van so it got on the cake too. The bride called up crying, and asked us to fix her cake. When we explained that it wasn’t our responsibility and that another cake of that magnitude could not be recreated in time and even if it could a new invoice would need to be paid, she was utterly hysterical.
• The person picking up the cake placed it on floor under her toddler’s car seat. The toddler kicked off a shoe and then the other. Throw in a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal (as the toddler did) and the entire cake was messed up.
You don't have to let us deliver your specialty or wedding cake to your venue, but considering everything you've invested to create the perfect day and the potential for disaster in unskilled hands, what is your peace of mind worth?
When it's time for you to begin planning your event, I hope you'll include me as your trusted cake design partner.
