I'm glad others are in the same boat as me when it comes to this.
I was just questioning it beacuse I had a customer rave about how great the chocolate cake tasted...and her mom actually ordered the same cake/filling the following week for another event. But then I had a customer (well not really a customer..I dropped off some sample cupcakes at my son's doctors office) and the one nurse said she thought the chocolate cupcakes were dry... (same recipe as the cake) and in that same batch of cupcakes a friend raved how great she thought the chocolate cupcake was. Which than got me wondering...some love it, some don't...just would hope they'd give feedback either way..but I guess we can't be that lucky!
Well, as far as that goes, it's true that you'll get people who love something and the person sitting next to them won't. So feedback only goes so far. When I do tastings I can get one couple who loves one flavor and the next couple who comes in right after them puts it lower on their list. If I worried about what everyone thought each time I'd make myself crazy.
