this lady ask me to make a cake, really my first to sell... this is what she wants and I have no clue...

Can you let me know what you charge and what kind of ideas you would come up with. I want stuff like crutches, wheel chair, depends, and anything for the OLD, heehee. Let me know if you would be interested it's for a girl at work.

sounds like someone is turning one of the big Zeros --- 40, 50, 60.

and is going to be teased about being OLD, decrepit, falling apart at the seams, in need of all those things she mentioned.


first things first tho' -- set a FAIR price --- fair to YOU that is -- one that considers not just the ingredients but also ALL your labor and overhead (equipment, utilities, etc.)

do NOT undersell yourself.

I did one of those for someone I work with, I basically copied the idea from another cc'er and named that person in my description. It has a handicap placard, false teeth, fixodent, bengay, hearing aid, etc.. Check my photos, and also look at the one I gave credit to. Should get your brain clicking in that direction!!!

could make it look like a big Rx pad...

with a prescription for all those things as old age survival necessities.

12x18 sheet is a "half" sheet
