What's the story on the ADORE book?  I placed my order months ago and it was set to arrive in February.  Still no book. Wondering if I need to try and get my money back or what.

You could try reporting this to the Washington State Attorney General:

But do it quickly, because CC deletes these threads when they see them.

Good idea!

 

When/if the book ever does arrive, I'm sure it's going to be nice to look at. They got amazing, talented cake artists to contribute without any compensation, they sold probably hundreds, if not thousands, of copies of the book (didn't even give the actual contributors to the book a free book- they still had to pay)- and then they never actually deliver a book. 

 

It's either a total scam or they are the worst business people you could imagine. Or maybe both?  Could this be an episode of American Greed? Stay tuned!

Should we take bets on if the magazine actually comes out tomorrow like Jacki's latest email stated? I'm guessing...no.

This is starting to get absolutely ridiculous!!!  My problem is honestly not with the delay of the book, it's with them taking my money yet never even communicating with me about when it's supposed to come out???  They took my money back in December!  I bought the book because it will contain one of my cakes in it.  I've emailed them multiple times with no response!  Argh!!!!!  So unbelievably frustrated!  When paying with paypal, most companies don't even make the charge until the item is shipped!  Not CC!  They've had my money for 6 months now!!!!  :mad:

We need you to post a pic of the magazine with you to believe that.... even then I'd b seriously suspicious

But hey, if they got ONE magazine out - then everybody else has a right to theirs.... right????   and its not like they print them one at a time...... or do they?

What we need is a mug shot of you, the adore book and a newspaper with the date showing, Just like they use to do for the kidnapping scenes in the movies.  Then we might believe you.

Well, the foot and matchbox car aren't included.  And the book you saw when you ordered it.  Looks the same. I'm not sure what you were expecting.  Though some free "stuff" just for waiting forever would have been nice!

HA, how do we know that you didn't cut and paste the picture from the order form on to a picture with your foot.  If you think that we are going to hand over money on such flimsy  proof you are taking us for fools.  OH, that's right, people have already handed over their money..........

Okay, pick a page # and I will open to that page and take a pic for you.  There are 256 pages.  I was not going to take a pic of me holding it because it is way too ugly in the morning without makeup.  I don't get the newspaper so the photo with the paper date wasn't going to work.  You guys are too funny!

Maybe they are taking so long since they are considering reprinting the cover to read 2014, since we are, now, in fact, over half way through 2014.

AOk, so I'm selfish, I vote to turn it to the page my cake is on???? Lol! Of course, I have no idea what page that is?? :)

You should offer to work for CC - you could email the book to people that HAVE paid for it ..... one page at a time !!   Still be quicker - I don't understand how they can stuff these things up - EVERY time !

I'm even more surprised at how people are so quick to trust them with money

LOL too funny ApplegumPam!  At first I was irritated it was taking so long but I already have all the magazines and I have already seen all the cakes anyway.  I was just concerned that I threw away money if I didn't receive the book.  But I am so busy with cakes AND a full-time job that time flew by and I kind of forgot about it.  Then it was HERE!

How come all your previous posts have the same mumbo jumbo...... are you an ALIEN?  or just the result of an unfortunate liason with  ??? ummm   who??

OR has CC put a hex on ALL your posts ???     better grab that garlic necklace  !!   haha

OMG ApplegumPam, you're hilarious!  Well, I guess you will have to sit and wait on that book.  It will eventually come.  I live in the states so for me it came quickly.  I guess it depends on where in the world you live.  There is a slow boat to China, I hear.

AIs this about the special edition book, I paid full price for in December, and still have not received it? I love CC but as far as buying anything from them... Never again! Been burned twice. Never received my subscription, when they Wete digital, nor did I get my money back. Now with this book, I was so excited to see it n get it and have wrote to them a ton asking where my book I ordered in December and paid full price n NEVER RECIEVED!
