We had a rather large stack of unusual cake orders this week.
A carrot cake for your daughter Deena who is graduating? Sure no problem...
We don't make flan very often at the Inn & I'm very thankful for that. When you make them this big they take FOREVER to bake. Of course, when I don't forget about them and get them in the oven before 8 pm it helps. Still they turned out pretty good.
Orange (in case it wasn't immediately obvious)
The real laugh is that none of these touch the oddest cake I've made at this job. Chef calls me to the office to listen to a voice mail about a cake order last summer.
"Hi this is Janet. I'd like to order a cake for my child's 21st birthday. If possible I would like most of the cake covered in blue and orange icing flowers. It needs to say "Happy Birthday Phillip'. Thanks"
HUH?? Icing flowers and it's for phillip. But wouldn't this "philip" be a son? I call the person back thinking to myself I misunderstood the message. Nope I understood the message perfectly, I'm just still baffled.
Poor kid. Flowers for his 21st birthday cake.
