This is the rudest cake I do – To some people it may even be too rude. I have to admit I did think twice before I took the order on.
The sad thing is, this isn’t the rudest cake I have been asked to do. Just last week I received a call from someone who was almost too embarrassed to ask for the cake she was after – a certain part of a male’s anatomy.
I know there are many cake makers who will do ‘rude’ cakes but I’m not one of them. There is no order that I am so desperate for that I would subject myself to making something like that.
I have the following rules before deciding to do a cake:
- Would I be happy for my children to see the cake? I have 3 young children and the cakes always spend time on our dining room table before leaving for the customer – This is really my rule of thumb. Funnily enough though, I was ok with them seeing the cake above – we are not prudish about bodies in this house and I felt there was a certain amount of decency about having the marzipan ladies’ boobs covered up with stars.
- Would I be happy for my mum to know I was doing a particular cake? I’m still 13 at heart!
- Would it create a good impression on my website? I’ve always got to think about future customers – I like to come across as a reputable business and one that people would be happy recommending.
- Would I be comfortable spending time making the cake? There are some fabulous cakes out there of various parts of the anatomy but I really do wonder how the cake designer felt spending so much time in close proximity to those body parts!
