There are so many things that drive me crazy, thought I would share and see if others have the same issues!
Here's 10 of mine-not in any real order:
1. Mothers calling needing a special birthday cake for their precious child--the day before the party! (First Birthdays drive me the craziest)
2. Some one saying "Oh I don't need anything too fancy....(Do you go to a tattoo artist and tell them to give you a tattoo, but nothing too fancy??)
3. Friends and family (who have gotten free cakes from you for years) comments "Who knew you were so talented!" (Well I am apparently talented enough to make your free cakes!)
4. Customer calls and wants to order a cake, but they're not sure what they want written on it or how to decorate! You make some suggestions and they shoot down every single one! (If you don't know what I want neither do I)
5. People who think it's ok to mash up as many birthdays and peoples names on one cake as they possibly can! (I can't imagine Grandma Sue, Uncle Bob, Niece Suzy, and Brother Jim appreciate sharing a cake)
6. Offering to do a cake for a friends birthday (for free as the gift) then they proceed... adding to the cake, wanting to make the cake bigger, and at the same time hinting for a birthday present! (When I win the lottery I'll let ya know!)
7. Customers request a custom cake, you quote a price per slice. They freak out saying why does everyone charge by the slice, I just want a small cheap cake?! (I now reply with a phrase I found on here a while back "Paint is sold by the gallon, bread is sold by the loaf, carpet is sold by the yard, and cake is sold by the serving."
8. "I just want a simple, quick, last min cake" when asked for more details they reply "Oh just a handful of roses, 2-3 tiers tall, beading, lace work, painted designs, etc" (What was the simple part??)
9. "I need a Yellow cake" (Yellow is a color not a cake flavor)
10. Showing up late to pick up your cake. This is especially annoying if they were adament about the pick up time when placing the order!!!
Now your turn! What drives YOU crazy!
