Hi all! I'm so excited...I have to share!
I rec'd an order last week....this is the first referral type order...all others are usually friends/family/neighbors etc..

So the cakes were due Sat @ 11 am....the barbie cake (brianna) was for her daughters bday on Sat. The Baby cake (retro baby) was for the baby shower the next day. So...I dropped them off....she loved how they looked. And that's all I knew

She calls me this morning....she says:
"Hi Jennifer? This is Julie.....do you have a minute?"

"I just thought you should know something about your cakes..."

* AT THIS POINT I WAS FREAKING OUT THAT SOMETHING WENT WRONG BECAUSE OF THE TONE OF HER VOICE!*

She goes on to say "They were a smash hit, everyone loved them and wanted to know where I got them. there wasn't a single piece left over from either cake"....as a matter of fact there were 5 more people at the baby shower than expected and the lady who ordered it didn't even get a piece! But she said that was fine (I offered in advance to make cupcakes too just in case)

I told her not to lose my # she said"oh definitely not....you are very talented...you should be proud of yourself!" I so love that woman!

Anyway....we don't always get to hear such awesome feedback...I was excited and thought you guys would enjoy the story!

That is SO awesome! It's always great to hear compliments like that, especially after all the work that goes into the cake.

Congratulations!

It makes my day when a customer calls (especially a new customer) and says "the cake was the hit of the party!! " I have one customer who tells me everyone asks off the bat.. "Is that a Ginny cake?".
Gives me the "warm fuzzies" I hope you get many more phone calls just like this one!!!!!! WTG
