Just how many DARN tastings are required???? (LONG RANT) - Page 3

post #31 of 112
How about this->

Instead of making a cake, make batch of petit fours. Give the moocher a single petit four to sample. When he asks for more give him a wide-eyed look and tell him they are for a school bake sale. But quickly add that you would be happy to sell them to him for 75 cents each and give his donation to the school.

I totally agree - no more freebies. The nerve of some people!

OMG...you guys have made me forget about the problem...I was reading those posts and laughing till I cried! And I did kinda "kick him in the head" metaphorically if not literally. I emailed and told him that it was customary to provide samples until the customer found one they liked and rejected the others....and that after that ...it was a cake order.

I also explained that I have done tastings ( actually only one where they didnt come back they got a fam. member to do the cakes) and not got the customer...and he was kinda apologetic and said he just couldnt remember which icing he had preferred but that they were locked in with me as far as the job which made me feel better. It is a 1,000.00 job so I guess Ill bend that extra lil bit and let him sample cake again too...since I actually am already gonna be baking today anyway and do have some of his particular type of frosting made up already.

Thanks for the laughs guys...it made me ease up a lot and just go send that email when I normally would have just stewed about it.

As long as he redemed himself a little bit, and you have extra already around, I guess he is allowed a little cakey. But NONE to take home!

What a baking slut! Giving in that easily! (I am seriously just kidding!)

You're doing the right thing. He probaly respects you more as a business person for sticking up for youself.

Congrats on the big cake order! Have fun!!

OMG, I just love threads like these! You guys have me rolling for sure!

Hehehehe... she called you cake slut!! I love it! I am sort of one of those. If I get five minutes of spare time I bake a freebie for someone!

But seriously, I think it's a real testament to your cakerage that some guy is having... um... 'moist thoughts' about your chocolate cake! I could really go for a slice!
