ARe you kidding me!!? - Page 10

Wow.. what a wild ride. Sweetie.. never underestimate yourself. That cake was beautiful. Worth MUCH more than $45.00. You can't be mad at her for paying what you charged, but you can be miffed about her tardiness and for the whole "I'll do RESEARCH to see what it's really worth" comment.. so rude! I'd take an order from her again.. and make sure you charge her FULL price (maybe tack on an annoyance fee since she was so annoying last time). When she gasps at the price.. tell her her cake was given.. yes I said given.. to her at cost because you had never done a cake of that kind before and weren't sure how it would go. Since she did her research she knows the fair market value of a custom cake. I am glad you got your quoted price. I wouldn't have let that cake go for less than 150$.. 50 servings at 3$ a slice is what I would have charged.. fondant modeling for the turrets and all would have been more. ((hugs)) I am glad it's over for you and you got paid.

lepaz, I'm glad the drama is finally over. Sorry she didn't pay you more, but at least (very least) you got the agreed-upon fee. I commented under the photo - your castle came out gorgeous. You should be (I think you are and rightfully so) very proud of yourself. You did an amazing job on it.

Thank you also for sharing the tutorial. I very much appreciate it.

Lepaz -- your castle is beautiful. I would have charged a minimum of $200 for it. It's hard to even calculate how many hours those castle cakes take to make!
