THese cakes are the reason people seem to think "Oh people don't eat cake at weddings anyway."  Makes me go thru the roof everytime I hear that!  People don't eat BAD cake at a wedding; people won't eat cake if it is served too late in the evening and they've had too much alcohol (booze and cake don't mix well together!).  People don't eat cake at a wedding if you wait and serve it after most people have left (leaving a lot of cake leftover, ergo the ASSUMPTION of "people don't eat cake ... we had SO much left!")

 

A wedding planner said to me once, "Debi, if I didn't already know how good your cakes are, I'd know it today.  THis is the first wedding where I've helped clear tables and there is not one crumb of cake left on ANY of the plates!"  This planner worked a lot of high end weddings so you can imagine what a great compliment is was to me.

 

People don't eat BAD cake at a wedding.  Period.  8)

Sniff....you misunderstand me. I was giving it a compliment! I think it would be happy to be thought of as smooth, creamy, sweet, and delectable (and I'd like to see it hold it's head up high). :wink:

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I don't think he can hold his head up, he has no neck.

Which is why I'd like to see it, as suggested by cazza1. :)

See, anything is possible with the right encouragement (If you have the right talent).

 After several phone conversations with a costumer deciding on all the details of her ( Sculpted Belly Cake )  I made her a beautiful and perfect cake.  She come to pick it up and looks right at me, as serious as can be, and says... "Oh my gosh it is amazing! Did you really make this!"  :-o   I wanted to say ... No I have magic cake fairies that come out at night and they made it!  ha ha

Family is what makes me mad sometimes. I posted a picture of pumpkin spice sugar cookies I did for a regular customer on my Facebook business page, and another of my regular customers asked, "how much for a dozen?" I replied back $20, which is the price listed on my website (keep in mind that I live in a small town in Utah, and so my prices sound cheap compared to lots of places, but they are the same as similar bakeries in the area). My sister in law then commented, "Wow! So expensive! I'll just make them myself!"

Grrr

I hope you chewed her ear off!

Delete your sister-in-law's comment, then call and chat with her. Tell her that you had to delete her comment because it was on your business page and it could hurt your business.

I'd probably do something snarky like - answer her on facebook saying "You do that, hon, but be sure to post photos of your final result.".

Absolutely agree. Sister-in-law needs to be told what was done and why. Keep the discussion strictly discussion.

It's never "just cake!"

 

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