I received a call yesterday from a potential customer that wants one of my cakes, but she wants me to use her recipe. I declined, of course. But really - how often does THAT happen????

BTW....she wants a giant dolphin fish, like the one in my pictures, in red velvet. How unappealing to cut open the fish and it's red.

on the fish.....ewwwww! icon_surprised.gif

And the odd request....yes, I've had that happen once or twice. And once I had someone want to bring in a plain sheetcake they either made themselves or bought at Wal-Mart and wanted me to decorate it for them! icon_confused.gif

uhhhh.... no.

I make a red velvet lamb cake for Easter almost every year. This year I made carrot cake and they were actually disappointed. icon_smile.gif
