Did you answer, "Because you're a cheap-o YUTZ, trying to get a rush job for less than the base price?"

I did the second time he called back. I am the only vegan baker in my area. i told the guy look here is a list of bakeries in the area call them they will tell you the same thing NO or if they say yes it wont be vegan then the words cheapa$$ just rolled out of my mouth.I also strongly suggested that he find a new baker. but, this guy has done this to me two times before calling the day before easter and the day before the 4th of july. 

May good luck be your friend
in whatever you do.

A stranger to you.

I think he should go on your "No cake for you" list.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

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

 Try," I'm sorry sir, but my baking schedule won't allow me to take any new cake orders until next year." ;)

I love how they want to tell us how much they want to pay. Lol

My favourite was - 'Can you just knock me up a cake'.    Or 'my sister wants a cake, but she is a bit short of cash - so are you still making cakes?'   One thing is for sure - I DO NOT knock up cakes, neither do I make them for cash strapped people.   If they want one cheap they need to go to Costco or supermarket and fight with all the e numbers it contains.   If they want they can make it themselves, that would be classed as a knocked up cake I guess.   If they want one for free - the only way is to pinch one from a store, that way you get the ingredients for completely free!!!   (Don't try that at home - as you will be in trouble with the law - but why do people expect stuff for low price from the cake decorating world - it makes me MAD)   Kx

Ok luv - "knock me up" means something entirely different in th US.icon_biggrin.gif

Yes. Now if cakes actually could get "knocked-up" (presumably in dark refrigerators) it would solve a lot of problems.

Ha Ha.  So the differences between UK English and USA English strikes again!!   Seriously in UK you knock up cement as well as knocking up cakes!  (We do have the other version to which you refer too - but it is not so common!)    I was watching re runs of a USA series recently and it did strike me how different our slang language is, and some things that were used on the programme, which we use really lightly, were deemed as massively offensive in USA, actually the use of one word (I wont say it) led to a disciplinary at work on the programme - and we use it as a fun saying to imply someone is useless - it is far more sinister, it would appear in USA.   (Now that got you all wondering what it is!!!)     So apologies if anyone across the pond takes offence at our sayings!   But on the other hand - if you knock up concrete to make an expensive house, the other kind of knocking up turns into much expense, then why on earth is a knocked up cake - deemed as a cheap version???   Things need to change!!! Kx

I just do cakes for fun but I know a lot of you have people asking for pregnant belly cakes so wouldn't knocking up cakes help you all out? :cool:

I flavour my fondant so it tastes like whatever I want. My favourite is banana essence. Mmmmm
