I got an email today from a potential client enquiring about 2 birthday cakes for her kids.
She wants a treasure chest cake to serve 8 kids..... yes, EIGHT!!
And a Thomas the tank engine cake to serve.....wait for it.....FOUR!!
Made me laugh and shake my head in despair at the same time. What do people think?
Maybe they are REALLY hungry kids....
wow, do you think shes kiding? maybe shes just inviting family.
I get this all the time.."Can you make a cake for 8-10 people"? So I got fed up and put a cake minimum on my site of at least 20 people or $40.00..I do not make cakes for 8 people..Some think that just because they want it for less people the cost will be less.Idiots!!
I told her that my minimum for 'shaped' cakes is $100. And that she might like to think about cupcakes!
It'll be interesting to see if I hear from her again.
I get that a lot and I basically offer to do mini cakes...but they still have to pay my min. amount. Do what works best for you. HTH
