Yes, that’s right everyone! I made Matt Damon’s birthday cake! Here’s how it all went down.
On Friday morning I received a call from a girl who who wanted to order a custom birthday cake…. for that day! Normally if someone tries to order a same day cake, especially on a Friday, I am not able to accommodate on such short notice. However this day was a little different. I was already finished making my orders for the day and was in the middle of delivering them all when I got the call. I thought to myself “I can do this” and then accepted the order. My client was so happy!
So I asked her for the cake details. She said she wanted the cake to feed 100 people, and to be in an outer space theme, and for it to say “Happy Birthday Matt”. She finally mumbled something about the cake being for their lead actor in the movie they were filming. I automatically assumed it was a local, independent film and didn’t ask any more questions.
Closer to the end of the call after confirming all of the details, my client says “Yah…. the cake is for Matt Damon” and I stopped what I was doing and said “What?” and she repeated “The cake is for Matt Damon” Obviously I said “Are you serious” and then she said “Yes, please be here with the cake by 5:00.
This was the cake I came up with.
I delivered the cake to his assistant’s office right at 5:00 as requested. I never got to meet him, nor did I get to have any of the photos of him with the cake. The reason is, they all surprised Matt onset with the cake, and no one is allowed to see the props or his costume for this movie yet.
I can’t even believe that Matt Damon, an actor who I absolutely adore, ate the cake that I made for him on his 41st birthday. I was told he loved it and that’s all that matters.
