Got an email last night from someone I made a cake for earlier in the year. She says her mom was wanting my strawberry cake recipe. Is is weird I don't want to give it to her?
Anybody else dealt with this? I don't know what to say!
It's perfectly o.k. to decline.
I agree!! All kinds of recipes on the internet!
As above. Or reply, "Yes, you can have my recipe when I am no longer in business." Giving away recipes is like giving away the keys to your cash register.
Another perfect response!
There is this Thai place that is amazing. I actually was picking up food there a couple of weeks ago and this lady was getting two tubs of their yellow curry sauce, she said she was having a dinner party but couldn't make sauce like theirs so she was cheating! She was cooking the meat and vegetables and than adding their sauce.
Once upon a time, I worked in a bakery...brought in some of my cake because the owner was curious. Then he told me he would buy my recipe for my frosting...um, nope...didn't even consider it! Nice guy; loved working for him and it was quite a compliment. Through the years, many have asked for the recipe and I politely decline. It is what the people remember most..not too sweet and very tasty.
