Okay, I talked about this lady in another thread about her wanting these cakes for her October wedding. Now, her budget is $200 for her cake and $100-150 for his. I'm uploading pics of the cakes she wants. They're not very clear, but you get the idea. Hers has flowers on them and everything. Someone who knows her very well told me she does not want to pay any money to any of her vendors. Hers is 3 tier! Now she only wants to feed 150 people so you do the math if I'm gonna charge her $3.50/slice. I can see now that I will probably be passing this order up. I will meet with her this weekend and give her options but if she insists on the cakes looking like these photos, she'll have to go elsewhere for $350 for both cakes.

I would just tell her, "here, these are my prices, let me know what you decide". Wouldn't even bother meeting with her until she OKed that.

There's no reason to waste your time or hers. She's not your customer.

Neat cakes--I love hers, it's really pretty. Too bad she can't afford them.
