    Piece Of Cake

    | Hillsboro, OR, USA | Food & Drink

    (Note that I am not the cake decorator at my store. I have no clue how to build or frost cakes. On this particular day, I am working alone.)

    Customer: “Is this ice cream cake vanilla flavored?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. That’s vanilla ice cream on white cake.”

    Customer: “What do you mean, white cake?”

    Me: “I mean, there’s white cake inside.”

    Customer: “There’s cake in there?”

    Me: “Um, well, yes. It is an ice cream cake. It’s made with ice cream and cake.”

    Customer: *looking distressed* “Oh…but, I don’t want cake! I want all ice cream! Can you take the cake part out for me?”

    Me: “Um, well, I’m not the decorator, so I don’t think–”

    Customer: “Just take out the cake part, frost it really quick, and I’ll buy it like that. It can’t be that hard.”

    Me: “So…you want me to scrape all the frosting off, take out the cake and throw it out, and then re-frost it for you real quick?”

    Customer: “Is that not possible?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but no.”

    (She ends up buying the cake anyway, but complains under her breath the entire process.)
