HELP! Wedding cake HEdoublehockysticks... refund?!?!??? - Page 8  

post #106 of 110
You really should stick to practicing with friends and family or just for yourself. I'm new to this myself I am dying to do a baby shower cake and plan to next week just for practice.
A wedding is not play time. you and the bride were wrong you bit off more than u could chew, the bride should not have answered your ad. Keep practicing and only promise what you can guarantee.
Every oven is different, there are a lot of factors that contributed to this mishap.

After eight pages of posts, Kelsy has enough advice from all of us here to make her own decision. What she does is her responsibility and hers alone.

Just my opinion.

I just wanted to let all of you know that I have read all the posts, and I thank you for all of your opinions and advice.
I'm sorry to say that I feel a large number of the posts were overly harsh and rude, but I understand that people have a right to post what they want, and how they feel.
I don't plan on quiting cakes (in fact I am making one for a friend tomarow), but I don't know how much time I will be spending here in the future. I really am quite turned off at some (maybe even most) of the responses I've recieved. NOT becasue I didn't/don't agree with what was said, but because I felt attacked and critisized much more than was necisary... especially in a forum where we support each other and share our "disasters."
I really do appreacieate all the advice, I just wish some of it could have come in a slilghtly more tactfull form...
As for those of you who are wondering about the cost of my supplies, yes, I am including equipment and gas to deliver the cake (not any of my other travel costs though). I also am including my costs to make several tasting cakes, and the practice cakes I did. While the bride ended up deciding on DH mix, she also wanted half of the filling to be homemade reaspberry filling and that amount of fruit wasn't cheap. She also wanted organic vegan icing (because she didn't want the taste to change at all from the samples) all of which have very pricy ingretents. Yes, I proably could have spent less on this cake, but I was buying things in a large city where prices are high, and I don't have a membership to any cost clubs. I DID spend at least $350 on the cake, so you all can either believe me or not, but please don't openly doubt that I am telling the truth here anymore.
I have decided not to post what I have decided to do on this board in order to avoid any more discusion of this. If you really want to know PM me, and I will share.
Thank you all again for posting, and especially to those of you who have given me kind words and support weather you agree with me or not! I can't tell you how much it means/ment to me!
I will probably be back at CC sometime, but I think I'm going to take a brake for a while to get over this.
I truly hope all of you are well, and happy caking!

I'm going to close this thread now. As requested by Kelsie, you can PM her for further discussion.
Birthdays are just nature's way of telling us to eat more cake.
