so it wasn't just the icing cracking? The whole cake cracked? I never use room temp cakes to stack. Do you torte?
the only time I ever gave a deposit was when the groom's fists sent the bride to the hospital all black and blue. My hubby worked with her, so he went to see her and everything. I had proof, and I figured it was a reward to her for not marrying the (insert really bad word here).Otherwise, non-refundable is non refundable, as others have said.
don't do the newspaper. Its a waste of money. Website Website Website- sink your moola there and then get the web address in the phonebook when you can. Take your time and design a nice one, like Leahs said, you aren't legit until people can look you over before they call!
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.

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,...
