It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Things my mom says to me,

why does the frosting taste so buttery?
Hey I volunteered you to do a 2 year old birthday cake the same weekend you have to make a huge wedding cake, that's ok right?
What is that fondant stuff, why do you have to put it on there (they ordered it) no body likes it.
Why do you have to do three layers inside, wouldn't two be easier?

My mom is silly :p.
Hey everybody! Check out google.com ! This is clearly an attempt to direct traffic onto that site and away from cake central. Because everyone knows you can only have one browser open!

I have absolutely told people over the phone, and in consultations, when they tried to haggle and say so and so bakery will do it for $XXX , that it wasn't worth it to me to make it for any less, so if they could find one as good as mine, then please snatch it up before the baker realizes they aren't making any money. And they normally decide to go with me, anyway. And if they don't, oh well!

I'd answer that one with something like, "You want it should taste like axle grease?"

Did they really say that? I'd reply that I'm glad to do staff training seminars, the cost is $100 per hour per person and they have to supply the location and materials.

This might be too mean to do to your mother, but I once made up a bunch of icing for a decorating class that had about half a container of salt in it. The kids in the class had been sucking icing out of the bags and saying that they "couldn't resist," so the salt icing taught them real quick that yes, they could resist.

I bet a cake iced with salty icing would make the complainers shut up real fast if they got to switch back to normal icing.
