I have to be honest, as upset as I was last night, I was ready to never do another wedding cake and start returning deposits from the dozen or so others already booked for this year. I have been second-guessing my abilities and questioning whether I should even be selling cakes.




Please try not to let one person's comment's destroy your confidence in yourself. I've looked at your photo's, and your cakes are great! Like you said, the MOB has not tried your cakes - so she basically doesn't know what she's talking about! Do not let these negative comments beat you! You are better than that!!!

Between this post and another one in the lounge I am dying to know what going on. I don't think I've ever been wrapped up in a thread like this one before.

I feel angry, taken advantage of, and fumed for you!!!

Best of Luck in the situation! thumbs_up.gif

Kitty, they haven't paid $500 yet. MOB was "willing" to pay $500 of the $600 balance at this time. The remaining balance would be COD.

Fed-Ex did deliver today. It's at my neighbor's.

Right after the post around 10:30 this morning, the family was called in for my husband's g'mother, who is terminal, so I haven't been home to further deal with this. We just got back from visiting with her. She's pitiful. She's been given mere days at this point. I did receive another e-mail from the bride, but right now, I'm emotionally drained. I'll deal with everything tomorrow once I'm rested and have my wits back about me.

I'll try and update tomorrow...

In the meantime, any and all prayers would certainly be appreciated for DH's g'mother. icon_smile.gif

Thanks so much everyone!

Sorry to hear about your DH's GM.

We will be thinking of you an your family.

My mom passed almost 2 years ago now of lung cancer. In the end we were thankful that she went peacefully and that we were able to visit together.

Thinking of you.

So sorry to hear about your bad news. I will definately send up a prayer for her........ thumbs_up.gif

I'm also glad that Mr. Fed-Ex showed up. This will be wonderful for you when it's all said and done with. I am sure you'll do such an excellent job (from looking at your gallery) that the MOB should at least apologize to you.

Best Wishes to your family

I just finished reading this entire thread. Amy, I'm so sorry you've had to go through this all and now dealing with your hubby's grandmother on top of it. Sometimes it seems that life is testing us. I'm sure you'll feel better in the morning and things will look clearer to you. I've already said a prayer for your grandmother-in-law and I hope no matter if the whole check is in that FedEx envelope or not, that things work out well and go the way you want them to go.

One thing I have to say that I'm surprised no one else said earlier on when you were dealing with MOB. Being that this came down to being an issue of the contract, if it was me and I had told the MOB that the contract was between the bride and myself and I couldn't talk to her (MOB). If she had given me the hard time she gave you, I would have told her, "Fine, you hold on to the money. Make sure you give it to my ______(fill in the blank - sister, cousin, husband, etc.) and my 10 year old son. They'll be delivering and setting up the cake." I'm sure she would have questioned that, and the answer that would have come back: "Well, I know it says that I'm going to set it up in the contract and that's what I told your daughter, but something came up and I have an order that's worth more money than your daughter's so I'll be setting that one up instead." You'd be sure she'd be quoting the contract left and right at that point and that would be when I'd jump on her and say that it goes both ways.

Anyway, that's the passive agressive in me, but that's what I'd probably have done in your situation. Honestly, I think you did the correct thing and I hope no matter what the breakdown is, you are happy and don't let this experience sour you. Just chalk it up to another lesson for future reference.
