I had a nightmare of a cake this weekend. Nothing was going right. I was on CC several times looking for help. I was ready to throw the cake against a wall. When it was finished I was not happy with the final product. It was not my best work and was not comfortable getting full price for substandard work no matter what my excuse was. I had prepared to offer 10% off the price on delivery.
We had a huge snowstorm, So I stressed driving icy roads to deliver said cake. I get there and even though it snowed 2 days ago they walkway had not been shoveled. I had to trek through the snow carrying this cake. The door opened and it was not hard to tell what the smell was in the air. And it was not cake!!
The party was an hour away from starting, but some "guests" were already there. While I was explaining how to cut the cake and about the supports as well as the discount, the guests apparently had the "munchies" and hacked into the cake.
I was mortified. It wasn't my best work, but it would have been nice if it had at least made it to the party in one piece.
They did say they would definitely be ordering again and I was inviting to drop by and "hang" out later.
Oy!!

Boy, I must still have a contact high 'cause there are grammar mistakes galore in my post. icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I showed the pics to my DH and the first couple he said I was being too hard on myself. Then I showed him the worst side and he agreed with me. I am almost too embarrassed to post pics on CC.
If I had know what was waiting for me on delivery I wouldn't have spent my New Year's fretting over this cake.

I could tap into a whole new clientele. I know where to get that "secret ingredient" now and there is a large college crowd here. Not the group I was hoping would be regular customers, but it could be very lucrative. icon_lol.gif

I had already handed over the refund check and had my back to the cake table. I will recoup it though. He orders cake balls from me by the dozens. of course now I know why a young, single guy wanted so many every couple of weeks. icon_wink.gif
