    well after lots of recommendations we bought a cake from a lady whos had business for years. We collected it yesterday for my daughter christening today, it looks beautiful but tastes vile. Not one person ate the piece of cake! Im quite pissed off as it cost us £40 :dohh:


    UPDATE

    I WENT AND SHE GAVE ME A FULL REFUND AND WAS SO UPSET BLESS HER. SHE APOLOGISED SO MUCH AND ASKED IF I WANTED HER TO BAKE ANOTHER FOR FREE BUT I SAID IT WAS FINE. X

    Sorry dont want to read and run but im not sure where you'd stand.
    Personally i dont think you'd be able to do anything unless it was actually wrong with it, did it taste off or just not nice??

    Goods have to be fit for purpose but what constitutes fit is a bit subjective. I would definitely tell the lady the no-one ate any because of the taste and she may ask to taste it to see whether it tastes like it is supposed to or not. If she believes in word of mouth etc. she should give you a refund but she may refuse. You haven't got anything to lose by approaching her.

    Id ask for £20 back as although it looked good it wasnt edible. Cant imagine she would argue it incase you started telling people her cake was gross.

    I think you should go and talk to her too. I'm not surprised you're mad.

    I'd also explain that you heard about her through word of mouth. If she doesn't do something that is reasonable enough, then I would by word of mouth tell others to avoid.

    Thats terrible. I hope the rest of the day went well though!
