The Original Poster (OP), a 29-year-old man, has been dating his partner, a 26-year-old man, for over a month. His partner’s birthday had recently passed, but due to his law school commitments, they were unable to celebrate it on the day.

Instead, OP suggested that they make up for it by visiting a DIY baking cafe on a future date.

OP believed that it would be a fun and unique idea for a date as they could bond over baking and he could also give his partner a cake for his belated birthday celebration.

Freebies and Fun

On the day that OP and their date met, they visited a baking cafe where the date was given the opportunity to choose a cake.

OP generously paid for the cake themselves, and they were even given some freebies to play with at the crane machine.

The Date Started Off Well…

OP deemed it important to recount the details of their baking experience, which would become relevant later.

Both OP and his date began by measuring and gathering the necessary ingredients. OP took charge of the stand mixer, while his date sat at their designated workspace.

Following the recipe instructions, OP mixed the batter for eight minutes, while his date sat nearby. Once the batter was ready, they put it into molds to bake.

OP took charge of the cake icing process, but his date expressed a desire to create an ombre effect on the cake by adding strawberry-flavored icing.

Despite initial nervousness due to a warning from the attendants that adding ingredients not in the recipe could result in an additional charge, they proceeded to create the icing as requested.

Over-Whipped and Over Stretched

Although it was his date’s first time making icing, he took on the task. Unfortunately, he over whipped the icing, resulting in some challenges.

After completing the baking process, OP and his date had some downtime while they waited for the cakes to cool. When it was time to assemble the cake, his date started with their icing first.

As expected, the icing was clumpy and not sticking to the cake. They attempted to fix it but only made it worse.

OP calmly offered to fix the icing, but his date abruptly disappeared. OP found him at a nearby table and suggested they finish the cake together.

However, his date became defensive and accused OP of doing all the work. Confused, OP suggested his date could finish icing and decorating the cake if they preferred.

His date refused to continue and instead left the cafe, telling OP to bring the cake home with them.

It Was NOT the Thought That Counts

When OP reminded his date that the cake was intended as a gift, he responded by saying that OP had done everything and should have just bought a cake instead.

He claimed that their time had been wasted and he should have spent it studying for law school instead.

OP was taken aback by his date’s reaction and felt unappreciated, even coming close to tears. Despite this, he did not want to escalate the situation and apologized repeatedly, pleading for their date to come back.

When his date returned, he forced OP to finish decorating the cake despite initially agreeing to do it themselves.

A Slice of Silent Treatment

After completing the cake, OP accompanied his date to the train station, but he remained silent and took the cake without saying goodbye.

Reflecting on the events, OP questioned if they were at fault in the situation. Reddit users had mixed reactions to the situation.

Others felt that OP was controlling and that the date was more about OP’s enjoyment rather than the boyfriend’s.

Some users suggested that the lack of communication and unrealistic expectations from both sides made the relationship seem unhealthy and advised OP to move on.

Others pointed out that the date was meant to be a joint activity and that OP should have allowed the boyfriend to make mistakes and have fun, even if it meant that the cake was not perfect.

Fault on Both Sides

Ultimately, many users agreed that both parties could have handled the situation better and that there were faults on both sides, making them both in the wrong in this situation.
