If you have access to a Michael's or Hobby Lobby, the student kits and all other Wilton decorating supplies can be purchased using their every other week 40% off coupons which would significantly reduce your total cost.If not, then there's an ebay auction of the same kit currently going for $159.99 as a Buy It Now which would still be a significant savings over Golda's...

It's great that your customers know what the requirements are for ordering one of your custom baked and decorated creations.

And she didn't provide any info so that we would know how she states her ordering requirements (or if she has any) - only that she was frustrated with late orders.Educating your customers so that...

It would appear that you don't have adequate information on your facebook page to advise potential customers of the correct way to schedule a cake order.If you don't inform them of the way your system works, they don't know that it's not okay to ask for a cake the day before they need one.If baking is a hobby, don't let it take away from your children or jeopardize your health. Just let everyone on facebook know that custom cakes take time, so they need to plan...
If you need more time to smooth, so that the icing doesn't set up while you're still in the smoothing process.... You can add a bit more fat to your icing recipe so that it takes longer to set up.I use CakemanOH's brite white frosting recipe which includes several drops of (white) vinegar (to prevent the frosting from cracking):http://cakecentral.com/recipes/brite-white-buttercream-icing/HTH
