Yep she hated it... - Page 3

post #31 of 160
i looked at your cake, and NOT amateurish at all. extremely good as a matter of fact!!! the lady honestly has mental issues, what kind of adult behaves like she did? don't you love it when people say "whatever", then decide they don't like what you came up with. i'm sure she ate it, and part of me hopes she choked on it. i don't think this will ever happen again, but if it does, you can be prepared with your reaction (like scooping it up and throwing it in the trash and saying, well, we can't give this to your guests then can we?) that would throw her off guard, cause then she wouldn't have a cake!!!!! i'm just waiting for the day something like this happens to me, i'll probably react like you did, try to remember that she is a NUT

The only problem I see is not walking out with the cake. There's no way I would have left without that cake. Even if we were both covered in it by the time it was all said and done. icon_smile.gif

I just keep looking at the cake again and again. I just can't see what she found wrong with it! I think it's beautiful. I've never made a gp bow and I am so impressed. I think you did a beautiful job!

I would not do any business with her after this. I would also probably send her a bill. You made her a cake and she did take possession of it. She owes you for your services.

Don't let that bitty get you down! Some people you just can't please.

Your cake is wonderful! Yes it is!! I would love to have your cake, I see nothing wrong with it ....PERIOD!!! She was in the wrong, not you...please don't think otherwise.

And I must say I love you ladies! You are all wonderful and creative and funny and supportive and I love this about CC!!! I agree that we pull together a posse and head to Kentucky. I can be there in about 7 hours, who is with me???? icon_wink.gif

I agree that the cake is very cute...and a very pretty yellowish gold color for the bow. Do not ever take an order for anything from that woman again...NEVER!!!! She does not deserve a nice cake from you!

((((hugs)))))) to you!
Your cake was beautiful. I suck at buttercream cakes, and I wish I could make one like that!
When you said how it looked, I was expecting something horrible, but it was gorgeous! That woman is obviously unstable.
Don't let her get you down. I had someone say something nasty to me a couple of weeks ago, and it upset me so much that I even canceled some of my orders. But, I got back on my feet, and can see now she was just a psycho. Keep your chin up! You did great.
Glad you got out of there safely...Now I hope her husband sends you a check plus some for emotional distress....

Christie, don't even let her get the best of you. Her actions were completely unacceptable! It's amazing what some people do! But honestly, your cake is darling - and it looks delicious! Don't loose any sleep over this one! I wished you had picked that cake up and walked out with it!! Keep your chin up!! thumbs_up.gif

What a heffer!!!! I cannot believe she got all trashy like that with you. I think you did a great job considering it was last minute, and if she was so worried about having a cake she should have thought about it well in advance. There are people in this world who are just never happy. Think about it, if she was like that with you, imagine what her poor husband has to go through or even worst if she has children??? In the future, I would block her from your phone and NEVER take an order from her again. That is just ridiculous, and for your own sake, keep that cake on your profile, do not let her do that to you, it is your work, and you need to show it off, you did a fine job. Keep your head up, sincerely, Veronica

I think your cake came out adorable for the being on short notice!! I'm not saying this just to be nice, but you did an awesome job with it. It looks so delicious (don't mind me, I'm craving and chocolate is my best friend right now. LOL)
I even asked my Hubby and he said that it came out really nice!
Don't let people like that intimidate you or take advantage of you. That happened to me once and I froze just like you did and left without any money...

Again, I think you did awesome on the cake. I know it's tough when someone makes you feel like sh**, but just take this as a learning experience.
Good working hard and continue to do your really nice cakes.
Good Luck!! icon_smile.gif

What a WACKO! Sounds like she was having a tantrum like a 2 year old! Your cake is just fine, NOT amateurish one bit! But I would take amateur over IMmature any day!

Christy - head up girl - your cake is awesome! I agree with others, the only problem I see here is that you left your beautiful creation with a total biatch! It amazes me how people feel they have the right to talk to someone like this when they are receiving a "service"? What's gotten in to people? Someone else said that she probably had something very specific in mind, and when you didn't do what she wanted, she wouldn't have liked it anyway. Of course - this is in NO WAY your fault. If someone can't communicate what they want, what are you to do? If we were mind readers, we'd be working for the psychic network making a hell of a lot more money than we do now! I agree- send her a bill! And, don't take any orders from her, EVER again! Her husband was probably mortified by her behavior - I know I would have been! Hang in there! You are very talented, and deserve to have someone eat your beautiful creations that appreciates them!! Hugs from CO!

You guys crack me up!!! I also think the cake is great, I only know one person that doesn't like chocolate and she is kinda weird!!icon_smile.gif I agree with BakingGirl, NEVER take another order from her again!! Let her go to Wal-Mart and see how their cakes taste and look!

I know you were so shocked and hurt by the moment, but my anger would have gotten the best of me on this one. I would have told that b**** and her dumb*** DH that I was taking my s***** cake and going home; and then I probably would have eaten the whole thing myself!!

Hugs to you; don't give it another thought. Your work is great - it's the people that aren't.
