haha! no, they drop their kids and run! no one is that crazy!
I'm ON it!
Actually, I am spoiled from my own cooking and baking, and think most candy just tastes cheap. I like Lindor,(sometimes, the outer chocolate is bleah) or Ferrero Rocher, or homemade. I am too snobbish to hork down a Kit Kat, and too lazy to make my own, lol.
To the original question, I say "I can do pretty much anything. What's your budget?" Then when you know what that is you know what you can offer without having to hate them for being cheap when they're really just clueless.
And chuck a wobbly is seriously my new favorite phrase
Like you if you can do only wedding cakes.. We havent even managed to "get ou" of "those" cakes!!
We do get pay-off enough to live from cake design, so our point is easyer to solve
Wend we don't want to the the cake, either we say no, our we say that the date is impossible for us !!!
It's not that difficult to say NO !!!! It's kind off a commercial line: Just Do it !!! what's going to append !?
Are they going to regrat asking? - YES !!!
Are they going to ask again? - NO !!!
Or, for a very different approach just tell them to go and talk to someone else, and give someone else in particular the job.
If you can't handel it on your one, have a "partner" that does it. You jus might get a new friend, and som problems off your back !!
i really don't understand. it sounds like you don't like making money.
If there was ever such a blanket statement, I haven't seen it. This situation actually proves just the opposite, since there is not enough time in the week to be profitable off sheet cakes with a DecoPac on them.
Exactly. Call me a romantic, or crazy, but I want to do cakes I can be proud of. If there are a few ugly step-sisters in there, I can take it, but trying to do 15 sheet cakes in a week, or 1 wedding cake is a no brainer.
Getting paid extra to do the boring" stuff can pay the bills too. Even with the crazy PITAs..... How about the good old minimum order price? At least then you are making a set minimum to talk to them... :)
Enjoy that time off!
