First Refund.... - Page 4

post #46 of 47
Thread Starter 
I have not heard anything from the bride yet. She was from a bridal fair and many brides create new emails for those. I am wondering if she even got my email.

Thank you everyone for your kind words, if anyone doesn't want to leave thier opinion on here, please PM me with what you think. I will not be offended at all.

This is my first time seeing this thread, and I just wanted to chime in with my support. Yes, you see it's a tad off-center and not perfectly smooth. All of us "pro's" do too. The bride did not see that. She saw her beautiful white cake with flowers.

About a year ago I had a sheet cake to do (HATE!) for some very nice people I know from church. My grandmother was in critical condition in the hospital and I was a stressed out emotional wreck making the cake. I hate sheet cakes and the cake was hhooooooooorrible. I didn't even post a picture here because I was so embarrassed. I wanted to give it to them for free. My husband told me something that I will never forget: "Don't go around badmouthing your own work." He wouldn't let me give the cake away for free, and guess what? The family LOVED the cake. They couldn't see any of the stuff I saw.

Two weeks ago I had a wedding cake partially collapse in the back of my SUV on the way to the wedding. I repaired it as best I could, but it was still a little crooked looking, and there was a smooshed side. You can see it in my photos, the top row (white with red rose petals). The wedding coordinators asked for my card because they said they could tell I did good work!?! I felt so terrible for the bride, I hoped she wasn't disappointed. But remembering my husband's advice, I did not jump the gun and offer to give her a partial refund. Although I had made up my mind that if she called and complained I would offer $100 back. She never called (at least not yet, haha icon_smile.gif ) .

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that the cake was not nearly as bad as you (the creator) thought it was, and that no news is good news. I have several of your cakes in my favorites, keep up the good work. icon_smile.gif
