We just got a call from a bride who wanted to know our pricing. We told her how much the cake cost per slice.

Her reply:

"I dont want slices of a cake, I want a whole cake."

Kid you not!

Perhaps if you worded the cost "per serving" she wouldn't have thought you sold it by the slice.

yes, we use per serving, per person, all those terms, it just depends on who answers the phone around here! haha! She didnt understand any of the terms. her next question was what a cake for 100 would cost....

That is so funny! I have never heard that one!

PS, I love that skit! I love it anytime Christopher Walkin in on SNL. He is so creepy.

If you quoted her how much "per person" would she have told you she didn't want you to supply the people, just the cake?
(sorry, I couldn't resist!!)

Muahahahaha. Or, "What if there is only 100 people, but they each want two pieces of cake? Do we still just pay for the per-person price?"

Beleive it or not, I have been asked this question!!!! I had a bride ask me "What if they want seconds?" I told her that is why I dont beleive this just serve 75% of your guest type thing...because you will get guests that want seconds and guest that don't want any and it will even out....

Today I had a request for Un-iced pound cake to serve the guest. Huh?? I told her we don't do un-iced cakes. my DH was suspicious of the request...and thought maybe it was a gag. Who knows!

Not necessarily a gag! I had a lady order a 1/4 sheet cake uniced! I charged her $5.00 less than my regular price and she still wanted it! I wrapped that sucker in plastic wrap and stuck it in a cake box and she loved it!!!! People are odd

I like to leave an uniced cupcake for my 5YO. He doesn't like frosting that much. He just loves the cake. Of course, if it's cake for a group I can just let him scrape it off, but I like to make him a cupcake plain to make him feel special whenever possible. thumbs_up.gif

Wow, just...wow. That is too hard to believe that it was beautiful. My uniced torted cakes are not beautiful!

There was a thread about that a while back, which as I recall, didn't end especially pleasantly. There were a few pictures, and honestly, they were not attractive. If your friends was pretty, that just means she had someone very talented and meticulous do it for her! We all like different things, right!? thumbs_up.gif

Years ago, I quoted the "per serving" or "per slice" thing and she asked how I figured that ..... did I count the number of pieces as I cut it or what?

What do I look like, a buy-it-by-the-slice pizza joint? icon_eek.gif

Uh, no, darlin', it's not "number of pieces you EAT" ..... it's "number of pieces I BAKE"!!!

Muahahahaha. Yes, I make a ten tiered cake, and then count as it's served and you pay for how much is consumed. Doesn't that sound swell? Oh, but I'm kind of a rip-off artist, so when you're not looking, people are going to get really SMALL pieces. icon_lol.gif Sorry, I had to go there. tapedshut.gif
