We've all seen it.
Bakers with delusions of competency.
Yes, these professionals lure in clients with pretty pictures and promises, only to shatter their pastry pipe dreams with poor planning and pathetic, um... skills.
That's why I'd like to thank all the bakers out there who proudly let their wreck flags fly, showing us exactly what to expect when we order from them.
In fact, I wrote you a poem, honest bakers.
[ahem hem hem]
Thank you for your honesty
In building your display
Your heap of melty sugar
Should scare us all away
And thanks for making it easy
To choose another store
Not that I don't appreciate
Some good ol' fashioned gore
Thanks for guiding blushing brides
With wisdom past their years:
That any wedding cake from you
Will only end in tears.
And thanks for being straightforward,
I expected nothing less.
You put it all right out there
With your drippy race car mess.
Thanks to you for having
the courage to admit
That when you try to decorate
It's going to look like... really, really bad.
Thanks to Lesley B., Laura S., Anony M., Tiffany M., Martha C., & Jenna M. for dropping a load of truth on us.
