that people think that they can get a cake for 75 people and not spend over $100 icon_eek.gif. A customer called and wanted a red velvet island themed tier cake (she specifically said, "no sheetcake"). She said she needed betwen 75 and 100 servings. I told her I would send her some pictures I had in mind and a quote based on different designs. She said, "no, you don't need to do that. I trust your judgment. You can be as creative as you want." I'm thinking, GREAT! Then I ask what her budget is and she says she doesn't want to spend over $100. HUH?!? icon_mad.gif

Maybe she needs to rethink the sheet cake? Some people always want something for nothing...or at least a lot for very little.

I'm thinking you have to tell her you can't do what she wants for what she wants to pay.

Unfortunately, another customer who expects a premium flavor and custom decorating at Wal-Mart prices. icon_sad.gif

So, is she on her way to Wal-Mart for sheet cake, or did she up her budget to get the tiered cake she said she wanted?

OOps. I posted this in the wrong section. Anhoo, Jan, I told her she could either get a 12x18 sheetcake for $120 or get a 50 serving two tier cake for $175. She went with the two tier cake.
