Not at all, you needed to see this guy. It was awkward borderline menacing. After that whole episode I don't care if he likes me personally, but he was a jerk plain and simple to his fiancée and a complete stranger. She seemed excited at first but devolved into an almost apologetic/begging manner after refusing to speak or help her choose. I wonder at him for ruining the fun of the cake appointment which was a special occasion in her mind and her for putting up with that...
Just finished a wedding consultation with a couple who drove quite a ways to do a tasting and iron out details for a tentative Sept wedding cake.. I welcomed them, introduced myself, we sat down at my table where the beautifully plated cake, filling and frosting selection was laid out..  The Bride was pleasant but the groom basically refused to speak the whole time, not a shy sort of silence but more "I don't like you/ want to be here". He didn't taste almost anything on...
I don't do adult themed cakes either. The customer is NOT always right. No matter what anyone tells you. They are Not entitled to anything you feel uncomfortable making.  I have worked in retail for decades and can finally just say that out loud and I mean it! I don't have qualms about breaking up with a customer if after great service, nothing I can do will make her/him happy. There are plenty more where she came from, and who needs the stress? I KNOW I bend over...
I had one yesterday while searching for a solution to my method of lining my pans with a sheet of wax paper I cut myself for each pan. I checked into buying the parchment rounds from the cake supply store near me, but they were like 19 cents each! What? I'm too cheap for that! But I'm busy and Sick of taking the time to cut them. I happened to spy some extra Coffee Filters on the counter my husband left out after morning coffee, and it dawned on me. Food safe, 8" paper...
Thanks for the support, wisdom and chuckles. I needed that Howsweet, I'm right there with you! Thoughts go out to you and your family!
I am never late. Almost Never. I have dreams about being late for things..  Ok so this last weekend I was working with a bride back and forth who only seems to want to text me on FB. She had my info from the Consult.  Anyways, I reminded her that her payment was a lil late-2 weeks- and I would need that to be able to deliver. All friendly like I always am to everyone. So she said  "I'm sorry, my mom will drop it by". Me- "ok I'll be here prob between 1-5 I have to be...
There are a few shops around here who share premesis. We have a coffee/sweet/sandwich shop in town who shares the front portion of her store with a gift business. Been there prob 5 years now. The Cupcake store in the next town has a purse shop in the front of it. Doing good so far. Would something like that be possible for you? Sharing the rent like that is smart and each business feeds the other.
That was exactly what she meant alright. I just thought, What did I do? Her last cake was beautiful and she loved it. Posted it all over FB. I'm not into games. I am good to everyone, and try to be kind and honest/up front and helpful about any/everything. Chalk it up to experience I guess, ha!  ,
Relief!   You know sometimes It feels like losing no matter how far backward you bend. I had a girl book a cake with me way back in the spring for *June*  and I had not heard from her in a long while. I contacted her a couple of times asking for her final details because I needed to know what to purchase for it etc. Then I got to the week of and messaged her: "Hi Sadie!, I still need details for your little girl's cake. I am super swamped! Will be shopping for...
I've been doing a kit for wedding consultations. 5-6 cake flavors and about a dozen frostings, fillings in lil cups in a pretty gift bag. It works out because it takes about a half hour off of the consult and the couple enjoys the "gift". I always have extra batter so I just fill the little 4" square pans I have and make kits from them.
