She tried to bargain you down, @Claire138. That's happening a lot these days. Amateur cakers will say okay and are overjoyed that they got a sale. Unfortunately, this process has only succeeded in degrading the entire cake industry.

Definitely

 

(I'll say it again - a lot of the blame for this goes to 20 minute tv shows that don't show the amount of work or people behind the scenes or price that goes into each cake, therefore leading everyone to believe they "must" have a cake but do not want to pay for it)

 

How much can she be making though if she's only charging 30€ for a 6 inch cake? Madness.

Really. *snicker*

 

1.  Would I really serve cake with broken glass on it?

 

2.  What part of "SALTED Caramel" did you not understand?

 

Sometimes you just want to reach out and slap their Reset button.

Oh my gosh, I had this happen to me once when I was working in a cafe. Some people.
