Have you ever had a client not show up for their cake? Like completely disappear on you?

Curious minds want to know. icon_wink.gif

As long as they paid in advance I could care less if they show up or not.

In our 3 years of operation and 500+ orders we have had exactly one customer not show up (for an 8" round, not a huge deal). We do not require payment in advance except for large orders ($200+).

Oh yesicon_sad.gif I've been 'stood up' a couple of time.
One time a women came in to my shop w/a little girl about 4-5. Ordered a 12x8 (1/4 sheet) cake w/a horse in a flield of flowers for the child's b'day the next day. Never showed up to claim it. Don't remember now if it was paid for or not - probably not as I didn't ask for payment up front on those sizes back then.
A lady in town owned a balloon/gift shop. She told me of how kids would call up to order balloons and not get them all the time. I guess it happens to all kinds of businesses.
