i know it would be hard for you to get there and then have to take your cake back if they don't pay but be sure you stick to your guns.They likely will pay you but incase they don't you have to show them you mean business. If they offer to pay in advance be sure you say yes.it has been said so many times on this site and will be said many times more...no money = no cake

I have considered this type of advertising too.The one thing you will need to do is have a "call to action" what should they do after they see the ad? go to your website, call you?I have considered having a contest... "enter to win a $500.00 wedding cake" that way you can measure the response by how many entries you get and the people will actually do something rather than just see your ad and forget about it.The downside is of...
