Hi all, I need some advice. An events planner met with me 2 weeks ago for a wedding cake, cupcakes, cookies, etc. The events planner said the 1st cake person she went to was very unprofessional and refused to give them cake samples which led them to me. Unfortunately for them my price was twice that of what she said the 1st cake person quoted. She then asked me to make it work with the quoted price from the 1st person. I couldn't for many reasons such as more expensive ingredients, kitchen overheads and being a LLC. Then she wrote me tonight to say that she is getting the cake donated as a gift to the bride by a big cake company here and if I could do part of the order of the cupcakes, cookies,etc.
My concern is that somewhere along the lines, someone is going to mix up my business name with the business that did the wedding cake. The company doing the wedding cake is known for very dry tasting cakes but do very good decorating work.
How do I politely refuse her and would you also feel concerned about having your reputation mixed up with another company? Am I wrong to want to refuse this order?
