cutting the b-day cake in the kitchen or at the table?

trolley | Oct 2, 2006 08:14 PM

i recently had a birthday party at a restaurant in venice, ca called beechwood. despite some really bad table snafu's they had (they insisted on minimum of 8 for table that only sat 6 at best) which is another whole other story, i was having a good time until...

it was time for the cake. my friend bought a big fancy cake from an outside bakery. when the cake was presented to me they had already sliced it in the back. i became a bit sad that i hadn't seen the whole cake and blown out the candles on top of the cake. i said something to our waitperson something along the lines of "shouldn't i have had the chance to blown out some candles on the entire cake?" then she said this was customary at a restaurant to slice the cake and proceeded to get really mad at me.

customary? is she kidding or am i just really out of it?
