'Out of touch with reality': Customer tries to order 800 pieces of chicken and 5 sheet cakes with zero advance notice

Poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my end, as a wise person once said. That won't stop some people from doing that anyway, as this bakery worker was surprised to discover. While event planning, there's a lot to consider. Who should be invited? Where will the venue be? What kinds of decorations will we need? And of course, what will everyone be eating? That last one is pretty important. Having quality food can make or break an event. I'm sure we all remember a wedding…

Nice going there, chef! If you're a viewer of The Bear but you can't cook to save your life, you may have found yourself pretending to be Carmy in your tiny kitchen as you boil a pot of pasta to complete imperfection.

'She will straight up ignore you': New sister in law gets called out for avoiding everyone in group setting

This person is baffled by her SIL's decision to attend family events— and then refuse to say a word to anyone. Maybe there's at least one person like this in every family. Sometimes there are underlying reasons why people aren't talkative at the function. If you go to a party and one person just won't chat with anyone, they tend to get ignored. If that's what they want, that's what they'll get. This person wasn't about to ignore the non-speaker at this family party, though. It seems like this w…

'Business owner doesn't know math': Coffee shop owner bans cakes, loses money

One business owner is getting fleeced, and she doesn't even realize it. Local coffee shops are a great place to get some work done on your laptop, meet up with friends to talk, or grab a quick bite to eat. While some locations only carry coffee and tea , a lot of them carry food products---and they aren't afraid to mark up prices quite a bit. The new owner of one coffee shop is still trying to figure out her profit margins. The owner of the baked goods shop she's buying from noticed that she's…

Making a custom order can be the perfect gift, but only if the creator actually writes what you want! There are seemingly quite a few sellers out there who have taken some liberties with what they'll write on a shirt or a cake. Getting a custom birthday cake for someone is usually a sweet surprise. The birthday celebrator gets to have a professional-looking cake to take photos with and commemorate the occasion. But as you can see from the numerous examples below, sometimes a simple request for…

'She made a big scene': Woman mocks coworkers' vegan lifestyle, then gets upset that coworker won't eat her "vegan" food

A birthday cake is dividing this workplace. That's because of two coworkers who can't see eye to eye about food. People eat all sorts of diets for all sorts of reasons. For example, if you go to the doctor and your cholesterol is high, they might tell you to stop eating eggs. Or if you want to have more vegetables and less red meat, you might start eating fish in place of burgers. Everyone eats in their own unique ways, and has their own specific likes and dislikes. But for some reason, people…

'Baker [...] misread the customer text asking for an Elmo cake and instead made an emo cake': 30 Funny food and cringe cake mishaps

Here's the deal with all baked goods: as long as it tastes good, it shouldn't matter what it looks like. Ok, maybe that's not true, but that's what I tell myself every time I attempt to bake something for my family, which I have done on only one or two occasions. Trust me. They do not want to eat whatever I bake. It's always too sugary, too bland, or somehow too salty even if there's next to no salt in there. Fortunately for them, this is why I rarely bake anything. Whenever I do decide to take…

'Congratalations on your weeding': 25+ Freshly baked cake mistakes

We get distracted by the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts. That's especially true with cakes, which can look stunning on the outside (thanks to fondant or other technically-edible decorations) but taste bland and dry on the inside. In my book, no matter how unfortunate the cake turns out , if it tastes good, it's still a win. Everyone has had a few baking mishaps . There was that time when we were all stuck indoors for a while back in 2020, and a lot of us got into baking brea…

'They [were] using the cake and ice cream as a diversion': Waiter stops would-be dine and dashers in their tracks by putting all the attention on them

Do people really enjoy being sung “Happy Birthday” by the staffers in restaurants ? Maybe there are two types of people: the kind who really love birthday attention and want to celebrate with everyone around, and the kind who shy away from big displays of attention, like getting the waitstaff to sing for you at restaurants. We've all seen it play out. A family will come in to dine, and one person will find the waiter in private and tell them to surprise the birthday person with cake. That often…
