SOOO, got wind of a little gossip today about my cakes LOL! Normally, I do not give a hoot who likes my cakes, who thinks the competition does better...blah blah blah, you know, small town talk...Anyways...my best friend just gave me a call, she seemed kinda mad...turns out a friend of hers was going to order a cake from me, but someone who has NEVER had one of my cakes, turned her nose up and said "ugh, she uses a box mix! I am taking my business to "John Doe's Bakery" who bakes from scratch. I will even pay double just to know its not a box mix"...Okay...great, do that then!! So now, this girl is terrified that my cakes might not be any good having never tasted them! I use a version of WASC for my vanilla cake only, everything else IS scratch! Normally, it wouldn't bother me a bit because the only reason I still use the WASC for vanilla is because it has brought me sooooo much biz and people LOVE that cake, I just cant change it because one person doesn't like the IDEA of a cake thats not 100% scratch!! Sorry for the vent..but it did sting a little actually hearing it, and of course, my friend was BLAZIN mad (hehe sweet friend ) because this person was talking down my cakes having never tasted one. It does make me want to try and find a good vanilla scratch cake that can live up to the expectations set by WASC though! Please oh please do not turn this into a scratch vs box debate, but, if any of you have any suggestions for a cake you believe CAN live up to the WASC, I would greatly appreciate you sharing!
