So, I never do this... I never diss customers who call with ridiculous requests..but this is a DOOZY. Phone rings like 15 times this morning as we are trying to open the doors. Woman says " Can you make a 3D airplane cake ?"...
We say "SURE..no problem."
She says" Well I spent the last two days making one, and when I picked up to take it to my son's party, it broke.."
We say " When exactly do you NEED this cake ?"

She says, " Well the party starts in next town over in an hour and 45 minutes. icon_confused.gificon_confused.giftapedshut.gif

Really??? icon_eek.gif

We then proceed to offer her cupcakes or an extra 12 inch chocolate round we have knocking around, at which she says " Well why would I pay for that?...I already made a cake."

Some people are so clueless. I had someone ask me to do a cake for a big birthday (50 people) 5 days before the party. She knew I have a full time job - not cakes, and she had $50 for her budget. She also knew I do cakes to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma, so she probably thought she would be giving me a generous donation. I turned it down. I require a minimum of 2 weeks notification. I don't do many cakes, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it either!

I think alot of people think I'm a bakery that can turn out a quick cake....I guess that's understandable...they are often shocked when I tell them 3-4 weeks in advance.

That is hilarious! Especially as she knows how long it takes to make and bake a cake, if she just made one. Dumb butt!

What, you mean you don't have a walk-in cooler full of airplane cakes at all times?

That's what I was thinking.....I know mine is full of airplanes and trucks and for those "special" people I also keep dozens of 4-tier wedding cakes on hand just waiting to be eaten.


Geeze!!!

Hehehe. I'm a cake muggle and even I know that the "in a jiffy" 3D airplane cakes are only available during the summer months. LOL
