Things NOT to ask a baker? Definitely not: 'Was it baked (in the oven)?'

 

Young girl comes to pick up her purse and make-up cake. Looking suspiciously at the cake asks 'Was it baked?'

 

Me: 'What exactly? .....The cake? Of course.' .......(I usually bake all my cakes - unless you wanted your purse full of liquid s#@t but you didn't specify that in your order. But you are right, it would make the MOISTEST cake ever but at the same time also clean and modern one...icon_wink.gif)

 

Girl: - 'Everything.'

 

Sure. I put a cake drum in my magic oven and a purse, fondant lipsticks, eyeshadows and nail polishes grow overnight like mushrooms. The only hitch: I have to bake the cake drum 2 days in advance otherwise it wouldn't have time to harden enough.

 

Apart from that, I don't enjoy working with people who ask for 'no buttercream and no ganache' in their cake.

dunce.gif MY JAW DROPPED AT THIS! I can't believe someone would be that dense! BUT i Let out a big ROAR that I have never heard before with the cake drum and "magic oven" comment hahahahaha

 

 

please tell me she was blonde shhh.gif

So, do you have a line-item in your pricing structure for "mental fatigue"? Wait a minute! Metal cake pans, metal cookie cutters, metal knives, metal everything else - does everyone charge for "metal fatigue"?

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

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

tonight i figured out a new one! yaaaay! i get to come to this thread and share LOL

 

I had made a really cute santa face/head and didn't get to take pictures before i left the house...so I was taking a photo when I got to my destination of a lovely family gathering with a bunch of kids. One of them was like maybe 4 and really REALLY wanted my santa cake...even after seeing it for 1 min lol. but my aunt was holding up this kid while I took a couple of photos, but my cake was near the floor and it was really hard for me to take a picture. so after about 3 shots my aunt is like....

 

 

hurry up and cut the cake! icon_confused.gif

 

I just sighed and said "let me get a good shot" but she proceeded to help the 4 year old by saying "she really wants cake can't you just cut it?"

 

yea....don't ask a cake decorator to hurry up and cut a cake when they are taking photos of their work...it's just not nice. icon_lol.gif

I always hate when someone asks me how can i cut the cake? Umm, its cake! It has to be cut to be eaten, unless everyone is planning on crowding around it and gnawing off of it like jackals on a fresh kill... And i will be angry if i worked that hard to make it yummy and special, then it gets wasted. No, its not all about getting paid for it.
