Oh my gosh didi5......I'm practically begging you NOT to do it for her. She doesn't deserve your work.

she really doesn't deserve it.

please don't do it, you'll regret it....

70 mini cakes is so much more work than you think....i'd rather do a regular sized cake any day than a mini...so hard to work on.

i find if you turn these picky cheapo !@#$%^s down...there someone nice right behind them to fill thier empty slot.

Well better yet, you can point her to the Little Debbie aisle.

Um... I think you better "promise" not to do business with her. They are forming a pastry posse...things could get ugly.... Seriously...don't let her disrespect you...you are an artist.

P.S. Your cakes are way to amazing to be selling 70 mini cakes at that price. Maybe I would do them at that price, but only because I still consider myself a beginner with not alot of wedding cake experience. But your cakes are incredible and well worth the price.

They will probably spell her name wrong (which is what she would pay for). I got my sons 1st birthday cake there (long before I started decorating) and it said Happy 7st Birthday. They thought the 1 looked like a 7...with a st behind it. So that and a few disastrous store bought cakes later led me to doing my own.

OK I have a new saying! "can you really put a price on the most important day of your life!"

I was watching ER last night and they were talking baout how expensive cakes are. Let her go find a deal else where. You get what you pay for!

I don't have time tonight to read all these posts but I HAVE been looking at your cakes. You do wonderful work! Don't you dare bend to this idiotic woman! Geez, the nerve to bring someone to you and demand/whine about getting a two-fer deal, well almost. It never ceases to amaze me how some people think. As someone wise once said "Too bad stupidity isn't painful!"

You know, I have a lot of respect for brides that stick to a modest budget and buck the trend of getting into huge debt for a wedding. HOWEVER, if you have a strict budget, you need to buy what you can afford, not try to get an extravagant cake for nothing.

If $250 is her budget, she needs to be willing to accept $250 worth of cake.

didi5, your work is AWESOME! The nerve of that bride and her friend and mom to get involved in trying to cheat you. Well I never! icon_mad.gif I always figured that if I weren't to make my own wedding cake I would at least be prepared to pay anywhere from $700 to $1000 for the green sugardelites cake. Honestly where do they come off thinking that wedding cakes are cheap? Keep on truckin'! thumbs_up.gif

I hope you send them on their way - your work is worth much much more! I would also worry about this kind of person upon completion of a project too. Make it COD, 100% in advance or take a huge security deposit, - like their car!!! I would also NOT be alone at hand over time, I would cover my behind in every way I could, photos and writing, because this kind of person will always try to find fault to save a $.
