Good evening all... I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this... I quoted a customer an amount for a cake, that I thought was more than fair. When I delivered it she said that she wanted to pay me more. I told her that I didn't think that was necessary, especially since I had quoted her the lower amount, and I didn't want her to think that I had done a more elaborate design on purpose to get more money. She insisted- but I am wondering if I should cash the check. What do you think??? Thanks !! icon_lol.gif

Consider it a tip. She was very pleased with the cake you made and that is how she showed her appreciation. Cash the check.

I agree with everyone!

Just think about it this way.. Clients like that who like to show their appreciation to you more than make up for those that show their tushs!!

Oh gosh.. cash it. She will be insulted if you don't. She obviously knows a good thing when she sees it and appreciates that. Too bad they can't all be like that. You earned it so cash it and next time she orders you can do something nice for her to thank her if you want.
