The Blog Train rolls. Next stop: A little bit of humor before hitting the town of serious and confusion.
A few weeks ago, I went to the grocery store with many of my neighbors and was rolling around in the bakery.
Side story: If you know me, you know that I LOVE red velvet cake. I go crazy for it.
I even was going to have a red velvet groom’s cake way back when.
So as I was meandering, I saw red velvet cakes on display.
However, they were only bundt cakes. And not the full sized cakes that I was used to seeing. I WANTED the full sized cake. I didn’t want a bundt cake.
The other thing that I noticed about it was the fact that there was only frosting on the top and nothing on the sides of the cake.
I sat there in awe of the missing frosting. I kept wondering what was going on. And why the heck would I pay almost $8.00 for this freakin’ thing when there’s only cake on the top??
Maybe that’s how bundt cakes work. I don’t know. I just know that I wasn’t happy with being ripped off of that creamy and sugary deliciousness.
As I began to fall into a daze, a bakery employee came up to me and asked if I needed any assistance.
I picked up the cake and asked them to double check the price. And they said that it was the real price.
I curled up to them nice and close and pointed to the empty center of the cake as is a bundt.
I asked them, “Where is the rest of the cake?” and what happened next was truly amazing.
Yes, I was being sarcastic but I was also being sincere at the same time as I wanted MORE cake.
They were confused. Until I made a nuisance of myself at poking at the cover of the cake at the center, telling them that the center of the cake was missing and the frosting was missing as well. Let me tell you that they were none too happy about the question and they couldn’t believe that I was being that serious about it.
I told them that I just couldn’t see myself paying that much for a cake that had a hole in it, because they baked it that way on purpose.
I was told to leave the bakery section of the grocery store and never to return. They were so upset about my question that they felt it to be a huge waste of time.
I mentioned this fact when it happened on Facebook. All I got was a bunch of perverted queries about baguettes. Shame on you all!!!
I do not think that I am asking for too much. Just put frosting all over the cake. NOT just the top. I don’t care if it is bundt or not. Spread that stuff, baby!!!!! Be a good Samaritan to those who want to purchase your delicious bakery items and give them their worth of money if you are going to insist on being a rapist of wallets and purses and bank accounts.
Give what the customer wants!! Hell, I had time. You probably could have baked a fresh cake and drowned it all in frosting. But no… you got offended.
