I was in search of a cake today and was sort of getting the runaround. I don't have the budget to hit up some amazing bakery in LA, so I was working the Grocery Store angle.
Apparently, Vons can only make you the custom cakes they have in their little booklet. Which are quite impressive, I might add. But god forbid I want to take Shrek off the garden-looking cake.
"Nope, I'm not allowed. I just got yelled at for that yesterday."
Really?! Grocery store bakeries...red tape. Who knew?
I walked up to the Ralph's bakery counter and that woman couldn't say anything but YES.
Can you scan an image? Yes.
Can I get green....? Yes.
Will it be ready by....? Yes.
I made sure to tell her that Ralph's would clearly win a thumb wrestling match with Vons, any day.
