Cake- what happens when things go wrong :)

So we had our cake tasting with Ana Paz on Friday. I placed an order Tuesday with 3 other cakes we wanted to taste. When we got there they told us they had us as a cancel which we never did cancel and I even had an e-mail confirmation from them for our meeting. I told them I had placed a special order for cakes to taste besides their 2 flavors they give you and they said that the truck from the other store would be there in 20min with those. I don't understand how they would have them made if supposedly we canceled but OK. They came out with our cake 5min later do not know how that happened so quick when they had us as a cancel. They were just little pieces on doilies. The cakes had the filling we asked for but not the flavor cake. Plus, they gave us the cake then walked away. Didn't have anyone sitting with us explaining anything or telling us they where sorry for the mix up.

All the vanilla cakes they gave us had rum and the owner said you are not suppose to taste the rum it is so little but we all did especially my FI since he does not drink alcohol. When I called to place the cake order Tuesday I told them we do not want any cake with the Rum.

After that horrible experience FI, my parents, and I decided no one eats the cake any ways. It is only there for pictures and the feeding of each other. So my FI said "why don't we get a chocolate fountain" which he has been really wanting. Feed each other strawberries dipped into the chocolate fountain. We all liked that idea and think it will be something very different and sexy. So that's the plan no cake!!!

For dessert our cater is making 3 different dessert so it is not that we needed the cake.

    That whole situation does sound very iffy.

    But you and your FI came up with a very cute and unique idea :)

    Sorry you had a bad experience. Ana Paz seems to be very hit or miss. But your idea sounds unique and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
