Last night I attended the birthday party of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Courtney V. It was her 26th birthday, and I wanted to do something special for her. Since back in the day, I remember Court loved cookie cakes (you know, the ones made with yummy soft chocolate chip cookies, and lots of brown and white icing?), so I thought I would order her one for the party as a surprise. I didn't have time to go to Great American Cookies all the way in Columbia, so I went to The Great Cookie (located across the street from the law school in the hospital) instead. Their cookies are pretty tasty, so I figured a giant one would be just as delicious!
I called in the morning, and I ordered a large (16-in) round cake that said "Happy Birthday Courtney!" in purple and white letters. Here's what I got:
Oh. My. Goodness. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?? Worst cake EVER! I mean, yes, it's funny - hilarious, even - but please! I am still in shock over how hideously this cake turned out.
Let's talk about all the problems with this cake: it's a small cake (12-in) (not 16-in, like I ordered), it's heart-shaped (not round, like I ordered), "birthday" is on two lines, as is "Courtney," or should I say "Courney" since her name is SPELLED WRONG! Could there be more things wrong with it? Thankfully, there were no problems with the taste - it was delicious.
Clearly, I will never be going to The Great Cookie again. If I need a cookie cake, I should just do it myself! Harumph!
Happy cookie cake fiasco,
