So glad so many posts on this site talk about not lowering prices. A friend wanted a Dr. Seuss cake (for a wedding shower...) for 50 people. I quoted her what was a fair price but she politely told me that was not what they had intended to spend. I told her no problem, I completely understand. Keep me in mind for future orders. She said she would. I am glad I did not put my all into a cake for not enough money. I am now legal and will be charging accordingly. thumbs_up.gif

Job well done. I am still going through this myself. It is still hard to tell my good friends no, but I'm getting better at turning down work for not enough pay thanks to CC!

Good for you! I don't see the grocery store lowering my price if I tell them that wasn't what I wanted to spend this week, so why should you lower your prices?

Good for you!!! I am not a business, so I don't have to worry about prices, but I have been telling people no alot lately. I just don't want to be that busy doing free cakes. Sure, I enjoy making these cakes, but I enjoy my family too!!!!

It's great to stand your ground, but you could've taken that opportunity to tell her that it's illegal for you to do a copyrighted image, without permission from the copyright owner.
