Exactly what kind of test strip do you have that tests for moisture in your baked cakes?  I'm intrigued.   I've only had one lady do to me what your customer is doing to you, and even though I KNOW the cake was moist, I gave her back half of her money and made her sign a waiver that the issue was settled.  I just didn't want her doing a chargeback on a $150 cake and risking losing all of the money.  But I know that cake was excellent.  I hope you are able to get her off...
Hi!   Does anyone have any experience with CK's new "Squeeze Gel Colors?"  I've used CK gel colors in the past (not the ones they are describing as a new product) and it always seemed to require much more of the CK product to get a deep color as compared with Americolor.    Thanks!
Hi Lisa,   I purchased your Craftsy class and can't wait to have some time to watch it!  I was wondering (if this is already not addressed in your class) what airbrush you recommend.  I would like to purchase a new one (gun only) and keep my current (very troublesome) Airbrush City one just for pearl spray.  Iwata has often been recommended by colleagues but they have quite a few different models and I don't know which would be ideal for cake work.  I would appreciate...
I posted this identical cake and request for the border mold half a year ago!   There is not a single mold (too bad) but the original artist used jewels from First Impressions Molds' jewel mold mats and created her own border on this gorgeous cake.
I'm in!   Perhaps the guilty bakeries themselves should be notified as well, in a spirit of gentle encouragement to not feed their clients inedible stuff.   Because if all "non-toxic" things were okay to be used on food, a cupcake with shavings of real crayons and a lovely topping of Elmer's glue would make an adorable school-themed cupcake.  A Pink Pearl eraser could be the topper.   For accountants, we could do cupcakes topped with pencil shavings, eraser doodles...
As a person who owned a bakery for a short while when I had kids at home (never underestimate the advice of others to never go into business with a friend!!!) and now as a person who owns a bakery as all 3 kids are now in college, I can tell you this: if you have children at home, then continue to cake from home.  There will be an enormous amount of time to dedicate to running a retail bakery once the kids are on their own.  I missed one of my kid's whole football season...
I (and many others) prefer a European butter due to its higher butterfat content.  Quality matters.
You could make some gorgeous Disco-Dust edged gelatin wings.  Obviously they should not be eaten because DD is plastic, but they'd make the wings super pretty.   I'm sure there are Youtube videos or tutorials on CC about making gelatin flowers, etc.  It's very easy and the results are really nice. 
I have all of the Clikstixs and love them now that I have removed the ejector pieces off of them.  I hated those things!!   I still think Tappits are superior though.
Okay, I've done some more research, and this item has been removed from the Sam's system.   It's not sold anymore.  Bummer.
