It is my daughter's 5th birthday today. Leading up to it, she had requested a Cinderalla cake and was really looking forward to playing with the Cinderalla figure. The week before, I picked out a "Cinderalla Transforms" cake and ordered it for today.

Imagine my surprise when I go pick up the cake, I see Optimus Prime staring up at me. Huh? Maybe he is protecting Cinderalla from Megatron, so I look around the cake to see if there is Cinderalla in there. Something is obviously wrong, your daughter bursting into tears, kind of wrong. So I tell them I asked for Cinderalla. They show me the order - it was written "Cin/Transforms". I guess they interpreted this to be a Transformers cake.

So they are remaking the cake. I guess I was lucky that I decided to pick up the cake a few hours before the party.

Re: Cinderella Transformative: A cautionary tale or two times!
I'm wondering WHO is this 'Cinderalla' as 'moi' knows ONLY of that 'Cinderella' with her 'crystal' footwear, or even the "X-rated" version? whistle

My (teenage) daughter proclaimed this cool. She's tired of the princess needing saving.

I agree.

LOL. I'm expecting my daughter to ask for a Black Widow (fr. Avengers) cake. Has done both princesses (unmodified) and Jabba the Hut for previous birthdays.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

The sad thing is that a lot of those "fails" can be mostly avoided if you realize that it is impossible to re-create a fondant sculpted cake while using icing instead of fondant.

Most of those are just idiot putting frosting on before the cupcakes/cakes are cooled.
