"This was the wedding of someone very close to me, not my wedding. I'm sharing this to try to make sure that no one else ever gets burned by this imposter that is trying to pretend to be a qualified cake-decorator!" the friend, Annette, wrote.
The Facebook user went onto explain that the cake maker had assured the bride that she could make something similar to the bride's requested peacock cake, and they agreed on a price of $300.
"Fast forward to 6:00 pm the night before the wedding and imagine that you are the bride eagerly awaiting your wedding cake being delivered," Annette went on to say.
"The cake is delivered in two separate boxes. One for the cake and one for the cupcakes and the cake-baker takes off so fast that no one has a chance to open the boxes before she's gone.
"The bride opens the box with the cupcakes and they were okay-ish, and then opens the box with the cake and the other photos show what she received. One of the bird's heads falls off immediately (and proceeds to fall off two more times after that).
"‘The bride, near tears, fixes it as best she can each time and is devastated by how the cake looks. The cake-maker did return after a phone call from the bride and brought a pan of Rice Krispie treats with her to use to "reshape the birds" but "really didn't understand what we saw wrong with the cake"!! Omg she was seriously clueless!"
Unfortunately for the bride, that wasn't the end of it.
"It's not covered with white fondant (because the baker said "it kept getting bubbles in it" WTF?), the buttercream frosting that she used is so thin in places that you can actually see the cake through it, in other places it's cracking,’ Annette explained.
"There's nothing decorative between the layers. Nobody has any idea why the ugly, gold fleur de lis things are on it (or New Orleans Saints symbols as most of the guys there called them).
"‘The one "peacock" looks like a turkey with leprosy or something, and the "white" bird, which isn't white at all, doesn't even have a tail or look like a bird in any way, it's just a brown blob!"
Annette went on to say that on the morning of the wedding things were so bad the bride was desperately trying to find a new cake.
