Hi, newbie here, I love making/decorating cakes, but by no means am I a professional.
Anyway, a cousin emailed me if I could make her sister-in-law's daughter's birthday cake. She stated that she would provide all of the "supplies," which I don't know if she meant ingredients and bakeware...etc. There is no mention of paying me for my "labor/service," and I doubt it she will pay me, since she thinks she is supplying the "supplies."
On top of that, I don't even know her sister-in-law! Never met her before.
So, should I do it out of the kindness of my heart if she provided the "essentials" to make the cake or should I say, "Sorry, I'm busy???"
I just thought it was rude to expect someone you never met before to make and decorate a cake without talking about prices first, even if you are supplying the essentials.
Making and baking cake is expensive and hard work!!! I hate washing all those dishes!
