Hello. I work as a home baker and my housemaid has asked to order a cake from me. she said her budget was 10 dollars. Of course Im not going to charge her, but also at the moment I cant afford to give a lavish cake away for free. Shes asked just for me to make her a normal boxed cake with some simple decorations.
Can anyone give me an idea of what to do that wont cost me much and is easy? Im not really a cake decorator but mostly a candy/bread/pie maker so I dont know anything about fondant and the only flower i can make is a rosette lol. Any idea of anything I can put on the cake to make it a bit more festive?

I'm sure she will love whatever you do. I have done quite a few of "these" cakes ... housekeeping staff at work, coffee lady for her church, etc. I don't do "fancy" and they have always been thrilled with the cake. Of course the fact that they didn't have to pay for it might have helped - even though they didn't know that until I delivered it. icon_biggrin.gif
