So i'm just getting started in this cake business and all the cakes i've made have been for friends. I got a call Friday afternoon from a girl that was a referral from a photographer friend of mine. She needed a cake THIS weekend for her daughters first birthday. But, of course, we were leaving that evening to go elk hunting....dang it. She knew she probably wasn't going to get a cake, and actually apologized for the last minute request. She said she'd keep my number for future cake needs. If she had called the day before, i could have had it ready for her. I actually made a for-fun cake that morning!! It's too bad it didn't fit what she wanted!!! Oh well.....there will be more, right?
Oh, and the REALLY annoying part? We didn't even get an elk....lol!
Sorry that this happen to you, but some time that's the way it goes.... Missing the elk is one thing, but one thing you can be sure of she will call you back... you will fix her a cake to die for. She, her friends and family will be coming to you with bells on looking for your wonderful cakes.
Good luck next time.
