I was checking my email this morning and saw an email from my last minute cake bride titled CAKE PAYMENT. I was thinking oh my goodness what was wrong. I was shocked heres the email...

Shalina's Specialty Cakes? ..... try Shalina's AWESOME Specialty Cakes!!!! I just wanted to thank you so much for making such an amazing cake on such a short notice, and such a far distance. To me it was totally worth the drive though cuz it was so good. Although the first bite was more up my nose than in my mouth, the other half i ate last nite and all thru the day today most definetly made it in my mouth and it was the best cake i've ever eaten. My dad was like "I wanna see what a 300.00 cake taste like" and he took a bite, the first bite actually, and he found out. I got so many compliments on it and i will pass your name on to anyone i know that might be needing a cake. So thanks again for the most moist, best middle, polka dotted, pink black and white cake i and my wedding guest have ever eaten. thanks again ....ashlee from ky

It made my day!!!

Congrats! With all the horrible, nasty bridezilla stories lately, it's refreshing to hear that there are in fact sweet and appreciative brides out there. Receiving a great compliment like that would make my day too! icon_smile.gif

Feels so good doesn't it!!!?!?!??!! Very Cool - good for you!

I just had a similar experience from someone I had made 2 cakes for for a graduation. I was nervous b/c I wasn't happy with one of them and a young kid (17 maybe) came and picked them up and just threw them in the back of the truck!! !YIKES - I was so afraid something happened to them b/c I hadn't heard anything. (not that I expect a response from every customer but some of my customers I know I will always get a response from and she was one of them) Well I just got a hand written letter from her telling me how much of a hit both cakes were and how great they tasted and wanted me to know that she will need my services again in a few weeks if I'm available!!!

It just makes your day doesn't it when someone takes just a few minutes out of their day to think enough of you to put it down in words and send it to you!

Good for you - I'm sure you're still smiling!!

That's awesome. Great job!!

I made a cake for one of my co-workers mother and her mother called me and left me a voicemail saying how great the cake was. It really made me feel good.
