I had a woman call on for an order of cupcakes for next Tuesday. She wasn't going to serve them until Friday night. I told her I didn't think they would hold up until then and they wouldn't be as nice. She couldn't pick them up any closer to Friday. Again I told her I thought we'd be pushing it, so she reluctantly said she'd find something else to do.
Was i foolish to let the order go? I didn't want to loose the order, but more so I didn't want her to serve MY old cupcakes!
What do you think?
personally i think you were right. You don't want your name attached to sub standard cup cakes, which they would be if they were old.
I think you did the right thing. I did the same thing this summer with a bride who wanted cupcakes for her wedding which was a 4 hour drive away, and three days from when she could have picked them up.
I told her she'd do better to search for someone in the area of her wedding to do them for her. I think she appreciated my honesty.
Did you offer to deliever them?
could she have kept them in the freezer until thursday? That would keep them fresh
I wouldn't have done it either. 3 days is just too long to leave cupcakes sitting around IMO.
