    Disastrous Wedding Cake!

    This was the worst part of my whole day! Our tasting was scheduled over a month in advance, with a deposit, and when we called to pick it up she told us she forgot, so we would have to come back another day, we live 3 hours away and planned to come just for the weekend in order to meet with all of our vendors. All the other vendors were amazing! Then she requested full payment a week in advance, instead of the day of. We paid in full. Then 2 days before the wedding she emails to say she’s having an arthritis flare up and won’t be able to do the fondant for the cake. After losing my mind, she finds someone to help her roll it, but that person has little to no experience with fondant, so it might not turn out. She was right! The cake was our centrepiece, and we had to completely remove it from the table as it was ghastly! The biggest letdown of the day was this horrific looking cake! Do not waste your time or your money with this woman; completely unprofessional and a total let down!

    Mar-a-thon Design: Custom Cake 'n' Card's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words; it’s not always that we find someone who acts in such an understanding manner towards a person with a disability. However, painful though it was, I was able to manage to work the fondant myself, thus substituting buttercream was not necessary.
    Concerning the tasting: I have not been giving tastings since the start of Covid, but I did offer to give them ( no charge) some cupcakes to be picked up when they passed by. All to my fault, with a very busy summer, I forgot to make note of their date to pass by.
    Concerning the cake: I do realize that the cake was not the greatest in appearance, but as I had stated before the cake order was placed, I do not prepare and place fresh florals in cakes, that I use piped, sugar paste, or silk florals. However, I was assured that someone else, with much experience with prepping fresh florals for cakes, would have the flowers prepared and ready for insertion. It was understood that I would only be required to insert the prepared florals and the topper.

    The topper was no problem; however, the flowers were NOT properly prepared for insertion. The florals bound together with floral tape had a diameter of over an inch and the stems were about 6-7 inches long. They were not placed in any kind of insertion pick, or covered with plastic wrap or foil to protect the cake from the soggy wet stems. I had originally requested a half dozen small floral groups for insertion, but instead got 2 large bundles, way too big for the cake unless being used as the topper.

    If this is what was wanted, then fine; I cut the stems so they would not poke out, and got some foil to wrap them so as not to contaminate the cake. Then I inserted them as made. If I had had my choice, the floral bundles would have been much smaller in size with several placed around the cake, and one with the topper.
    I do not think I shall ever do this again, i.e. have someone unknown make preparations for one of my cakes.

    Mary made our wedding cake perfectly to match the inspiration picture I provided her. The cake was absolutely delicious and Mary was a joy to work with -- arrived on time, all emails answered extremely quickly. She does wonderful work and I will be recommending Marathon to anyone!
