Ouch, that hurts....my ego! - Page 2

O, you guys are so great! Thanks, I needed that.
You know, you don't have to like my STYLE, but I have been baking for many years and sell about 40 to 50 wedding cakes a year. At least I thought they were PROFESSIONAL!
Yes, I am dying to know what their final cake is going to look like!

They COULDN'T have been looking at your website. Because I saw a VERY professional website with beautifully designed and executed cakes. There HAS to be some other story behind her declining your offer. HAS to be.

Remeber when she calls you back to make the cake since it will be too expensive otherwise that you are now booked for that date.
That is just rude, and she doesn't deserve one of your beautiful cakes!

Wow, that is just unreal! It's one thing to politely decline, but to say that your cakes aren't "professional" is just wrong (and rude). Like others before me, I have checked out your site and your cakes are GORGEOUS! Always remember that everyone has their own opinion and as long as you and your clients are happy with your work, that is all that matters! And I agree, if she comes back looking for it later on, tell her you are booked.

Ok I have to admit I thought, maybe people on here are just being nice because the cakes had to be a little off if someone passed up a FREE wedding cake..then I looked at your website...OH MY GOD!! You are wonderfully talented, your work is beautiful and clean and they are CRAZY. I really really hope that when they come back to you wanting that free cake that you tell them you are booked or better yet tell them since you don't think their wedding choices are classy enough you're going with a different bride..PLEASE...really!! your work is great..they're truly nuts. Crazy crazy people!

wow.... I just took a look (I imagined they were gonna be very amateurish looking...) boy was I wrong......

What is she talking about?!?!?! your cakes as as preoffesional and beautiful as they come.... maybe she is one of those close minded people that even when looking at your work... they just need someone ELSE!

Don't let it hurt ur ego... ur ego is where is shuld be... ur cakes are amazing and don't bother with the comment she made...

BTW: If I was getting married.... I'd be HONORED if u made MY wedding cake!

Great work! too bad she doesn't realize it... but she will... and when she does... i hope you tell her NO... I can't do it!

I just looked at your website, and your cakes are beyond gorgeous!!! Those wedding cakes are breathtaking -- literally, I gasped a few times as the photos changed. All I can say is, families can be crazy and rude, and you're lucky you haven't seen her in a decade. icon_wink.gif

I can imagine that your ego is hurt, stupid reaction and very rude.I hope that they included new contactlenses or glasses on their weddinglist, they sure need some!!
Ik kon het niet geloven toen ik je foto´s bekeek, ik hoop ooit zo goed te worden maar ben er nog lang niet.(I looked at your pics could not believe there reaction, i hope to be as good as you, some day.)

groetjes, saskia

icon_eek.gif Holy cow, if you offered to do my wedding cake I would be all over happy! Seriously, either they have Nicholas Lodge lined up to do their cake or they went to the wrong website. I can't imagine that excuse being used as a reason to decline.

I won't assume that the cake they end up getting will be crappy or they have bad taste, but I do think you have dodged a bullet. Now you don't have to deal with the stress a wedding cake for family can bring. thumbs_up.gif

Your cakes are beautiful....she's just silly. I would make sure I was at the wedding so I could see what she considers a "professional looking" cake.... you MUST post pics! LOL
I guarantee it won't be prettier than yours!
