Yesterday was my 78th birthday. So I decided I would order my own Birthday Cake. A bakery had an illustration for some cakes for all occasions I chose an Elvis Birthday Cake. Phoned the lady well in advance and ordered it

A white cake and she told me she could put anything in it. I chose fresh Strawberries. Plus Happy Birthday on the cake.

Hubby picked it up Friday. We waited until I had my birthday supper. Hubby cut it for me. I am too messy with cakes.

Well!!!!!! Chocolate cake with chocolate filling in between and no HB on the top of the cake. I had one piece and it was terrible. Thick sweet icing and chocolate which I hate. Not going to eat any more and next time we will get our cake at Romes where the cake is nice and the icing is not sweet. The price of the cake $30

Well thats my rant for my Birthday:thumbs_down::angry:

Happy Birthday Super Gram! What a disappoinment that must have been.

If I was you, I'd march that cake back in there today and demand your money back. Hopefully, they'll still have the order form on file and will see what you had ordered.

$30 is too much money for them to make such a mistake on it.

Agreed. ^^^

Also, I find Romes cakes are really sweet. Haven't had one in years... are they changed?

Happy Belated Birthday! :)

Sometimes, it does pay to complain to the business, especially if they care about customer service.

77, ... wow! Double lucky!

Happy belated birthday Gram. If more people your age were as internet active, it would be a perfect world.

Soonet should have a feature where they can post birthdays (with the members permission) so we wouldn't miss the important ones like yours, .... congrats again!

Almost sounds like maybe there was a mix-up. someone wanting a plain chocolate cake got a special Elvis white cake instead. I'd definately call and let them know they screwed up, bigtime!

Hope the rest of your day was everything you wanted it to be, Happy Birthday Lady!

:sad:Not the only thing...I was upgrading to AVG free 2011, rebooted and my puter loaded and froze. Turned it off overnight............worked next time...thought I was smart and rebooted and it froze again. Kept turning it off and on until it loaded again. Not going to turn it off until I can get someone to take a look........BTW AVG is working just fine and did a scan in safe mode.....thats about my computer skills lol

Aww thats a a bummer gram. Happy belated b-day.

In June on my daughters 3rd birthday we ordered a cake from Tony's. It was suppose to be strawberry shortcake . Instead it was strawberry with black forest cream in it, It was nasty. They mixed up the cream they put in it.
I think next year Im going to try out Thynes (sp)

Hope the rest of your day was fabulous :)

I think that this is a classic example of how sometimes you can't have your cake & eat it too!

Nevertheless, Happy B Day!

Happy Birthday to one of the most amazing and inspiring woman I know (on here) actually there are two of you. Karen Annie is the other.

So full of life, and just all around down to earth..

Just remember Gram, you only as old as you want to be...... Like they say, if you cant stay young forever, you can always stay immature :shade:

Hugs and best wishes.
