She just might have to start developing a taste for them. One of her bridesmaids mentioned to me that she told the B2B that she would not be handling any last-minute emergencies that resulted from poor planning, including any baking-related tasks the morning of the wedding.
The B2B may be having budget issues (she's mentioned wanting to save money several times), but is ignoring a lot of practical suggestions: instead of doing a picnic of sorts for the reception, she's having the food and dancing reception (at noon or 1 p.m., I'm not sure which), a sheet cake is tacky-looking (isn't the point of a cake to be delicious? If it tastes like heaven, I don't care what it looks like), and the last time I spoke to her, she mentioned that she was putting off some tasks, like finding a photographer, because she knew it would be expensive (which is why the photographer came right after the church and reception venue for me, so that I could find a good one and stay in budget). It seems like she wants her princess day, and her parents haven't contributed enough to make that happen.
The whole thing has since blown over, and the B2B has told me that my bridesmaid spot is still open (and will be open), should I decide to take it, as I've been trying to offer her practical advice with the baking (I have the same type of mixer that she's planning on using, so I've let her know that she'll need extra mixing bowls, etc., as you can really only make 2 dozen cupcakes per bowl in one shot). I'm tempted to say yes, simply to observe the wedding and then report back (the groom wants to ask his fraternity's cook to be a groomsman. The cook is middle-aged and has a wife. The groom's dad will also be a groomsman/best man. It might be weird for the bridesmaids, all of whom are in their very early 20s, and there will be an attendants' dance, where the attendants dance with each other.)
