This does happen quite often. Its not unusual, simply because the florist usually goes to the church or ceremony venue first and doesn't make it to the reception venue until later in the afternoon.Call the florist and coordinate the time. Then just deliver shortly before she'll arrive so that you can be there to monitor and get a picture. I usually have the brides get me their cake flowers and I do it myself. Even if they are already arranged, the brides know that no one...
things to bring:CalculatorServing ChartPrice ListContractpencil and pensketchbookbusiness cardsFolder to give them with copies of all infoEven though they don't want samples, it would be a great touch to have a small cupcake of mud cake for them to take home. This will be super fun! Just relax, and enjoy designing. You definitely have a gift, you just need to use it on a bigger scale!Best wishes!
I especially loved the bottle of wine next to the box- shoes, cake AND wine. Woot Woot!
Turn the oven down!!! You're cooking the outside before the inside even has hope of catching up, and as you realized, it is not death for cakes, but terrible for your cuppies. Maybe even lower it to 315? I never bake above 320. Even big cakes.
I wish we still could count on emails to alert us when there is a response!!Update- I actually got a response from the bride (yes, on her honeymoon), she said her daughters were in charge of the getting the items to me, and she was very disappointed because the venue was supposed to have the items out for them to see... Huh?Anyway, the vendor just called, on her way to drop the things off with my husband, who works with her mother.... and, she liked the cake so much that...
If you're serious, you need to change your mindset. You can't "just" do business. It is an all or nothing proposition. If you want to make money off what you love to do, you need to begin the process of getting to that point, and all the hitches along the way.I think most of us have gone through what you are going through- that changing of the mind that takes you from- "I JUST want to sell a couple of cakes a month from my home to "OK, I need a business plan, a loan,...
I know people who do Gumpaste flowers only and don't have to be licensed.
or cooks specialty? they are really cheap.
ok, I just got a call from the event site I worked with this weekend. The bride left all of my equipment with the site, and is now on her honeymoon. The contract she signed stated that the items must be returned by tomorrow or I would cash the check and begin deducting $5 per day until items are returned. I always thought that was fair, (and never had to deal with it) until this: This bride is an older bride (and a PITA) who threw a fit about the drive to my home. (about...
momma budda~I am in Greenleaf, and I know Brown County licenses home bakeries. Not sure about Manitiwoc County. I would contact John Paul at Brown County Health Dept. He is great to work with, and he will give you his counterpart in Man. County. You do have to have a separate kitchen, but it can be in your house. Good luck!
