Bridezillas and Cake

They just don’t mix.

For example, there is a show on TLC called Cake Boss. I happened to stumble across it while working the other day, and lo and behold, one of the pieces to it was about a wedding cake.

And a bridezilla.

Now, I have been called a bridezilla. And, after seeing this, I call BS.. I am not a bridezilla.

Back to the story: this bride and her mother walk into the shop. The bride is surly looking and the mother is as giddy as can be. All the bride can do is sit there and pout and tell the guy that she wants a black cake with calla lilies — in her words “funeral”.

Buddy, the baker, tells them that he will make a cake that is 4 tiered, ivory, with draping and calla lilies.

The above was his creation. And boy was he proud of it. Though it’s not my style, I can appreciate the cake. It seems as if it took a long time to create and everything.

Well, Bridezilla comes into the bakery the day before the wedding because she wants to see the cake. He obliges.

She walks in and tells him how horrible it was. That it was dull with no color and just terrible. I mean, it was bad — she was horrid to him. He walks out to go take care of something else going on in the bakery, leaving her alone with the cake.

We all know where this is going, don’t we?

Well, she turns around to grab all the pretty colored icings and goes to town on this cake. You can see the result above.

Talk about going ballistic. Carlo was not pleased and kicked her ungrateful butt out of that bakery. Now, please remember that this was the night before her wedding day. He calls the mom, who was a good friend of the bakery, and tells her what happens. You can hear the mom on the other end crying and apologizing etc. She begs him to create another a cake saying she’ll pay him for both as well as the over time for the bakery, whatever it took.

He gave in! He said he would do it because he wanted “to be the better man”.

And boy did he create her a gorgeous cake! 5 tiered, with a quilted pattern and sugar flowers placed onto it.

Now, the show leads you to believe that she wouldn’t look at it and was just a total b**ch about all of it. The mother loved it.I don’t know what she is like in real life. I have no idea if it was scripted or whatever. All I know is that she looked like a tool on national television.

Oh, and I am not a bridezilla.

    That’s not a Bridezilla that is vandalism. It is an illegal act. That criminal should have charges brought up against her.

    I just finished watching this episode and wow… I would of been so angry! So what if she thought the cake was “ugly”. She was rude and he put up with that but then on top of it when he was going to get some opinions on what to do to add color to the cake she destroys it so that he would HAVE to make another one. When they were talking she mentioned the colors of her wedding but never made an agreement that those colors would be incorporated into the cake or where.

    Like someone mentioned before she could of said the cake was not what she was expecting and would like to work something out for another one. To me it seems she settled when they discussed the cake just to get her mom to chill out then decided she would go in and ask to see it and destroy it so that he would have to make it the way she wanted rather than putting her foot down to her mom.

    When i was watching that all I could think about was when I was dealing with these 20 year old bride (im a florist btw) and she came to pick up her bouquet the morning of the wedding. Right before my eyes she started to pull out flowers and mess with it, I spent HOURS on that and it was one of my favorites and it was just like she wanted it to be.
    SO MAD

    Yes, that was a horrible episode. (Bakers name is Buddy btw, no Carlos) I am a cake designer and would be pissed if someone did that to one of my cakes and then expected me to make another one. The problem was, that is not what she wanted. You gotta make what they want! regardless of your own visions.

    Sabrina: Thanks for the correction on his name; I’m only ever seen the show that one time. It really was just bad on both their parts!

    Thanks for stopping by!
