All of her cakes were TMNT, Spongebob, Hello Kitty...
I know she can't be making much money.I know she will price herself out of work. I know her buttercream wasn't even slightly smooth. I know she is not technically in a beginners league. I know I wouldn't want the customer base she is getting. But it still drives me bonkers!
I'm not giving her a hard time because she is new, we all had to start somewhere. I'm still new compared to many of the other decorators here. It's just so disheartening after everything I've gone through to get licensed, remodeling my home, etc. I can't help but feel terribly frustrated and she's not the only one in my area that's cut through the red tape (so to speak). I almost did it myself before I knew better, well went about things backwards anyway. There are people in my area that post other people's work as examples of cakes (with watermarks)!
I know there are people that do this all over, maybe some just don't know any better. I saw websites that listed 'easy home based business' for stay at home mothers' cake decorating was one of them, 'Do you like making cakes? Sell them from your home!' Again, I'm not disrespecting home based business owners! I bake from home, so please don't be offended. Just venting, which has turned into me babbling incoherently
