They just don't mix.
For example, there is a show on TLC called Cake Boss. I happened to stumble across it while working the other day, and lo and behold, one of the pieces to it was about a wedding cake.
And a bridezilla.
Now, I have been called a bridezilla. And, after seeing this, I call BS.. I am not a bridezilla.
Back to the story: this bride and her mother walk into the shop. The bride is surly looking and the mother is as giddy as can be. All the bride can do is sit there and pout and tell the guy that she wants a black cake with calla lilies -- in her words "funeral".
Carlo, the baker, tells them that he will make a cake that is 4 tiered, ivory, with draping and calla lilies.
The above was his creation. And boy was he proud of it. Though it's not my style, I can appreciate the cake. It seems as if it took a long time to create and everything.
Well, Bridezilla comes into the bakery the day before the wedding because she wants to see the cake. He obliges.
She walks in and tells him how horrible it was. That it was dull with no color and just terrible. I mean, it was bad -- she was horrid to him. He walks out to go take care of something else going on in the bakery, leaving her alone with the cake.
We all know where this is going, don't we?
Well, she turns around to grab all the pretty colored icings and goes to town on this cake. You can see the result above.
Talk about going ballistic. Carlo was not pleased and kicked her ungrateful butt out of that bakery. Now, please remember that this was the night before her wedding day. He calls the mom, who was a good friend of the bakery, and tells her what happens. You can hear the mom on the other end crying and apologizing etc. She begs him to create another a cake saying she'll pay him for both as well as the over time for the bakery, whatever it took.
He gave in! He said he would do it because he wanted "to be the better man".
And boy did he create her a gorgeous cake! 5 tiered, with a quilted pattern and sugar flowers placed onto it.
Now, the show leads you to believe that she wouldn't look at it and was just a total b**ch about all of it. The mother loved it.I don't know what she is like in real life. I have no idea if it was scripted or whatever. All I know is that she looked like a tool on national television.
Oh, and I am not a bridezilla.
