Oh oh oh, I have one! This is usually said after the person has sat through an entire tasting appointment and has gone on about how much they love your cake etc etc etc. "I have a friend who does cakes, so I'm going to give them a chance to do it, then I'll give you a call."

 

Translation "I want the entire wedding planning experience so I'm going around doing tasting appointments, but I don't want to pay for anything, so I'm going to guilt my friends into doing things for free. I won't be calling you because I can force her into doing it, but thanks for the free cake and letting me waste your time, I had a lot of fun!"

Seriously. At $150, it would not be worth my high-ratio shortening.

Or it could be finished in the maple-syrup-and-powdered-sugar glaze I cobbled together for a dairy-allergic colleague's cupcake, when I made the Leland Awards cake. Or royal. Or whipped cream. Or cooked "fluffy white." Or any number of other materials that are neither BC nor fondant. Or (especially if it's a pound cake or an Angel Food) it could be dusted, or even naked.

My fav...after I quote a complex cake for $250.  'But baker xyz said they can do it for $60'.  I'd rather have yours, so can't you match their price?'

How about "I'd love to do a birthday cake for you!  How much do you want to spend?  It is a business that pays my bills, you know! (wink wink)  The answer could be interesting!  LOL

ROFLMAO   What did you actually do/say??  If anything!!
