How does everyone price their cakes? - Page 4

post #46 of 70

Strangely, her wedding cake was actually decent looking. How odd.

 

I think OP is lying. I think this is really her cake and the wedding cake was the result of amazingly gifted little furry hands.

 

I saw "Ratatooey"; I know what's going on here.

that's certainly one way to say it--fully invested in the 'loving hands at home' quality is another -- we don't want to discourage anyone from posting, lightening the mood and getting us to laugh at ourselves-- or do we?  :grin:

 

it's a tortuously homely cake but there is an odd merit to the art..sorta

I started thinking this might be a fake post after you girls mentioned it but OP went on to give advice about pricing to two other 'newbies' early this morning!

She advised the first poster that said she could easily get $5/serving then less then five min later she told another 'newbie' to sell her cakes for $1-1.50!

I simply don't understand how one would justify this thinking.

But this thread has been very amusing this morning icon_wink.gif you girls crack me up

Woo hoo! What I generally do is put up an ad on Craigslist, load a few random photos from the internet of cakes I think are pretty, and call them "reasonably priced" kustom kakes. I wouldn't charge more than $50 for ennything though, cuz that's jist greedy to ask for moar.

It's the thinking of many newbies and hobby/business bakers on CC. They know it all and are ready to dispense advice or yell "rude!" whenever they damn feel like it. Cause everyone's an expert, right?

Yes, they do. They share it with their friends and laugh at getting people all mad or whatever. So if this is a troll, it's not typically just one person having a big laugh. People alway point to their joining date, but a good troll will join lots of forums and lie low for that very reason. When you feed the troll you're providing entertainment for the troll and his friends.

this is the opposite of a reason to not think this person is a troll.

The best indication of a troll is if their posts are pretty much statements that drive everyone crazy and low post count. Trolls like to brag about how they got so many people upset.

If the OP is not a troll, some of the answers on this thread have been unkind. Since there is no way to know, it seems to me if you think this is a troll you wouldn't want to post.

I should have mentioned - trolls are not typically grownups.

I concur with this statement. I play those multiplayer online games a lot of trolls are kids looking to stir up trouble. What's funny is when an older player trolls the troll! xD

due to the drastic difference in skill level from rat cake to this one i'm thinking op is not a real caker--but it's just a guess--albeit reasonable

I've never understood trolls, don't they have anything else to do? I'm confused.

Considering that dependent children are now considered to be 'kids' until the age of 28, this sure creates a lot of prospective trolls.  Is this like the old version of calling on the phone and asking if "You have Prince Albert in a Can?" or "Is you refridgerator running?"

Ah ok, that explains it although if I had no date on a friday night (I'm married but you know what I mean) I'd tuck myself up in bed with a warm toddy and something good to read!
