Wedding Cake Disaster

It was going to be a great reception at River Crest Country Club in Fort Worth. The weather was beautiful, providing a great view to the east from the upstairs ballroom.

The House Manager spoke with us as we were setting up our Party Machine sound system. He was shocked by the wedding cake that was just delivered, a bizarre creation of multiple cakes on stilts, connected by plastic stairways, with a cheesy plastic fountain under the center cake. The manager said it was the tackiest cake he had ever seen.

I had seen some exotic cakes before, but this one was truly weird. It was Barbie’s Dream House meets “Chutes and Ladders.”

Nevertheless, the reception went well, and everything was proceeding according to plan – at least until a large woman stumbled backwards into the cake table.

You guessed it: the stairs came a-tumbling down, and the fountain made a huge mess.

The manager happened to be on our stage when it happened, but instead of being upset, he was delighted! He made a quick call on his cellphone, and the staff had the mess cleared away before many people noticed. And a beautiful cake suddenly appeared in place of the bizarre Stairway to Heaven cake.

Sometimes a disaster can be a blessing in disguise.

There’s no accounting for taste – but it can be improved!
