post #76 of 89
OMGoodness ladies, is it a full moon tonight or something? This is the third or fourth thread I've seen today where people were just tearing each other to pieces.

Kim62808, for now you should just figure out your costs and make sure you're covering them. When you get that confidence up, you can start charging for your time, if you don't want to do it now. But don't take less for a cake than it costs you to make it and don't agree to do any cakes if you have something better to do that weekend, because if you're doing it too cheap or for free you may start feeling like you've been taken advantage of, and that takes the joy out of doing cakes.

As for leverly or whatever she calls herself , I won't take the time to look up her name b/c she has a distasteful mouth .Pimping out a cake she says or wanting to beat the holy hell out of me { ps I live in Mesquite Tx pm for my address } !!!!!!!!! .. What I want to tell you miss trash mouth was that if you are so worried about me the hobby chick down the street maybe your cakes are'nt worth what you think they are b/c if they were you would'nt worry about what I am doing down the street . So maybe you should be asking the " how much should I charge ? "

To the nice comments and actually help thatnk you !

Just to redeem myself..this was said by ApplegumKitchen

"Do you want all the platitudes about ... oh no - your work is worth more than that! - because I for one am not going to do that. "

That would be where the "self gratification" comment came from. It was implied in the thread...I'm pretty sure that makes me "staying on task". Someone else implied that's what it was and I was responding.

And I'm certainly not implying that anything should be sugar coated. I am all for constructive criticism. That's exactly why I like this site. I believe OfficerMorgan's criticism about her work was meant in a honest fashion. And I would love to hear something like that as it was given in a constructive manner.

SOME of the criticism here FEELS and READS like the writer is implying that the OP or other posters are idiots. I personally feel that's unnecessary...that is what I got heated about and felt the need to comment on.

Geez OP! Get hold of yourself. You gave so little info in your original post.

The OP asked if we thought $20 was too much. People answered. Obviously the answers weren't what the OP wanted or expected, so s/he feels the need to lash out at everyone who told her that NO.... $20 is most definately NOT too much.

I forgot to throw in a booooooo to applegumkitchen ,, wow ur a total donkey's butt !

It was a simple question , I am going to charge someday for my time but as for now I don't . I bake all the time and it actually did'nt cost me more than 20.00 to make I had alot of the stuff around the house . I made my own MMF and had it froze from a cake I made my girlfriend for her shower as a gift ,,YES A GIFT I actually did'nt try and be greedy and charge my friend it was a thoughtful gift . So like I said when I have friends come and ask me for a cake ocasionally I dont charge them to much ,, this dosent happen often !

If you're sure $20 covered your costs for the cake and you're not out to make a profit then why bother to ask if we think you charged enough?

Nobody wigged out. Except maybe you (not 'u'). Calling someone a donkey's butt is trashy.-

Seeing you are SO GOOD at using your brain to toss around the insults - try directly it to thngs of a BUSINESS NATURE! - your question DID NOT say.... this was a gift! nor did it illude to the fact that ... you were only charging for the ingredients that you had to GO OUT & BUY !! (did the ones in your pantry fall from the gods?)

Why are you saying all of this now? You are obviously VERY HAPPY with the $20 that you charged

WHAT DID YOU HOPE TO GAIN FROM POSTING THE QUESTION ??

Lurvely sweetie. And if you really took that to mean you, literally, then I don't know what to say.
