Literal Caking Decorating

This pictures show how easy miscommunication can happen when placing an order for a cake!

And this one needs an explanation:

This story clearly illustrates the problem with ordering over the phone:
[answering phone] "Cakey Cake Bakery, Jill speaking! How can I help you?"
"Hi, I need to order a cake for my boss. We have a photo of him playing golf that we'd like to put on it, though - can you do that?"
"Of course! Just bring the photo in on a USB drive and we'll print it out here."
"Great, I'll bring it by this afternoon."
Later...
"Hey, Jill, what am I putting on this cake?"
"Oh, check the counter; I left the jump drive out for you there."
[calling from the back room] "Really? This is what they want on the cake?"
"Yeah, the customer just brought it in."
"Okey dokey
!"

Hope these made you smile!

Have a great day,

Diane

LOL, Diane ... I can relate to some of those. I spent 15 minutes trying to explain that I wanted an extra flower on Avery's birthday cake for a "one to grow on" candle, and never could get the lady to understand.

Cute post!

Hi Diane
These really are funny! One time at my husband's office the boss was dictating a letter to one of their not quite so bright secretaries and at the end he said "blah blah blah" meaning finish it off with the usual name company etc. The secretary sent it with blah blah blah on it!

I picked up a birthday cake for my husband the other day at Walmart. Didn't order it. Just picked a plain one out. I've heard too many horror stories!
