To expect the person that asked DH to buy a very expensive cake to pay him for it!

DH was away on business last week, and a person from his office asked him to buy a particular cake for them. Why DH didnt think "flippin heck that cake is expensive!" and ring the woman , I dont know!!!! Anyway DH bought the thing, but the woman has said she wasnt expecting it to cost that much, and doesnt want it! So we are now left with this cake, which is expensive and do not know what to do with it! I know some of you will say eat it, but to be honest we are not great cake eaters!
So is there anyone out there that would like to buy an expensive cake, its a chocolate torte!

I think if it was me I would be so embarrassed that would pay for it and write it off to bad experience, and remember not to do it again!
DH did think about the price when he was buying it, but thought as woman had asked for that cake specifically she would know about the price!

at £25, but even more [shcok] at the brass neck of someone who asked your dh to get her something and then when he does decides nah.....
Some people are just so weird. It's like they live in a parallel universe where basic manners and consideration for others is completely absent.

how rude of her though - to ask someone to get something and then decide you don't want it.
Can you explain that it was bought specifically for her etc - guilt trip her into coughing up for it.
Otherwise I suppose you have to just treat it as a learning experience.
