That's gross sales, not profit, but still, it adds up.

 

Holy crap, that's a lot of cookies!

Yes! She is doing 30 dozen this week. She may burn out before long at this rate.

There's issue number one, BAD enough. But then, her children got to it and chewed all over the outside, bit chunks out of it, licked it, etc. Did it go in the trash? Nope...she redecorated it by patching the holes in and slapping some cut out flowers on. And put it back up for sale. I believe a family member eventually collected it, for a party.

Also, recently saw a tray of cake balls on someone's page done for a gender reveal, with a pregnancy test stick sitting on the edge of the tray. It was not a brand new stick either, if you get my drift. Now the decorator did say she did not take that picture, but on what planet would someone think that was an ok thing to put on a business page?

Hopefully nobody grabbed it to stir their drink. icon_eek.gif

I've actually seen worse things on business pages. I'm more appalled by the cleavage and ***y selfies. *gag*

I know EXACTLY the page, I saw it myself. Shockingly stupid to put that up for sale AND explain the stupid story, plus that wasn't the first time her kids had demolished a cake.

I remember a past thread where someone was saying they only get paid for ingredients or they charge less because they are new. Someone stated MD's, lawyers, etc. don't charge less for being new to the business lol, I love that because it's so true!

 

Just to clarify, its not strictly true that professionals (i.e. MDs and lawyers) who are less experienced don't charge less. I can't speak for doctors, but in the engineering/planning/law consulting business, rates ARE based on your level. So a junior, intermediate, senior and expert professional will charge different rates to reflect their experience level. It also reflects how much you get paid (i.e. 3x your salary for example).
