I went here to pick my two tier cake for my sisters birthday on Sunday 09/06/2020 first my top tier fell from it not being secured correctly but they were closed so I couldn’t get that fixed then come the day of my sisters birthday I got to cut the bottom tier of the cake on Monday 09/07/2020 and it was nothing but a bored only cake around the edges they are closed today but I will be making a call to them in the morning I am beyond upset I payed a hundred and something dollars and didn’t even receive what I payed for I am very upset about this
Business Response:

I'm glad we had a conversation on the phone about this thank you for calling. As I explained on the phone, this is the way that a tiered cake is set up: You have 3 layers of cake, 2 layers of filling for both cakes. For the bottom cake, once you are done icing the cake, you put a plate on the top of that cake. That plate has 4 holes in the bottom of it so that you can insert 4 cardboard pillars that go from the bottom of the plate (the top of the cake) to the bottom of the cake, where they hit the board that the cake sits on. This is done FOR stability. This is the only way that a tiered cake can work, you need that plate there to be able to support the cake that goes on top of the bottom cake. You need the pillars to go to the bottom of the cake because if you just put a plate on top of the bottom cake, it would do nothing without the pillars, kind of like a building if you built a floor and didn't put any beams under it to hold it up. The top tier did not fall off because it was not secured correctly, the top tier fell off because you had the cake in your lap. We discussed on the phone that you were told to put the cake on a flat surface but you had no room in your car to do that, so you put it on your lap. Unfortunately, your lap is the worst place to put it. Your legs are not a flat surface. You don't realize that you bounce your legs up and down when you're sitting, but you do. So this cake is driving to wherever you're going on a slant and being bounced up and down. You were one of 35 tiered cakes this weekend, they were all constructed the same way and this didn't happen to anyone else. I'm not saying that to try to rub it in your face or to boast about anything, I'm saying it to point out that the stability of the cake wasn't the issue, the way it was transported was. And then when you say it was nothing but a board, only cake around the edges, those are the pillars that I referred to earlier in this explanation. Those pillars don't account for too much space, so while there were boards in your cake (the pillars), you take those out before you eat the cake. There's no other way to do it. The reason this whole situation upsets me is because you're tarnishing our reputation for something that is not our fault, and that's just not fair. And life's not fair, so I'm not worried about that part, but on the phone when we were talking this through you just ended with "well then I'm not doing business with you ever again and you're going to have a bunch of bad reviews" before you hung up on me. The thing is though, you already did the reviews before you even called. Both here and on Yelp. Unwarranted reviews. Which to me is what you were planning on doing the whole time, which is extortion. You were going to get your way or you were going to harm us. And I understand why you'd be angry about the cake because you didn't understand the reason it fell over even after you were told not to do what you did, or how a tiered cake is constructed and how you need to go about eating it, but I just hope now that you do realize that and you won't have this situation again in the future. We appreciate your business and if we don't see you in the future, we wish you the best of luck in everything you do. Sincerely, John Roeser
