There's No Crying in Catering
Let’s talk about cake incident. You can't blame Jasmine for trying to pull together a cake together for the client. Girl was deluged with ridiculous requests for monkeys and whatnot and this seemed like an easy enough thing to whip together than having the Central Park Zoo delivered. Of course, it was a crazy last minute request, but that's kind of how the business is going to be. She probably should have consulted Roblé, because she probably should start thinking of him as her boss. But maybe Roblé could have been a little nicer, particularly when she came in to try to get the cake for the singing. . . yipes! Someone did need to take her outside and give her a hug, but that's the sort of statement that's best said in a whisper. He should have knocked the cake out of Artie's hand and had him handle it.
In the end Kerry just threw the cake everywhere so it was really all for naught. And the monkey did make it. (He looked just like Marcel from Friends. Cosmo, his name, might even be related to Marcel from Friends. I'm not sure how long monkeys live or how professional monkeys get discovered. Is it a family business?) But here's hoping Roblé and Jas can let cooler heads prevail next time, or there are going to be a lot of tear-stained cakes in their future.
Next week's episode is super epic -- Kandi Burruss and Matisyahu. I know, how did we already get so lucky?
But what are your thoughts on the first episode? Leave your musings in the comments.
It was interesting, However looking at the client, to be honest I found her offensive, if I were in the cartering business, I would walk away from her. Looking at the previews with other clients I would do the same, these clients are going to kill the show.
if the show is premised on making the clients look bad then I fear that "The Co." will have a rough time finding new clients for their business...yet at the same time, ridiculous clients are what will probably continue to make this show a must-watch!
That last minute cake request was over the top rude. The poor cake baker was then required to make one and decorate it perfectly in just a short time..The demands on her were absurd. And then the birthday "girl" just obliterated the cake! Robles sister just is too inexperienced to handle the demands people make on chefs and bakers - she will learn in time, but hopefully she now knows to deny these requests until she speaks with the poor people who have to do the work!
