Then maybe once the cheapies see what the cake cost, they will leave us alone and be happy with walmart.



God, this is SO true!!! I get photos all the time from women who want to have a birthday cake for thier kid and they want to pay 20 dollars for it. I asked them "do you know how much time it takes to make all those gum paste cars and trucks or bows and animals??"



AGREE! I describe it as "Their eyes have seen the glory (on Ace of Cakes) but their brains haven't caught up (still thinking walmart price)."

Hubby has a GREAT idea to battle this! We're going to put it together, I swear we are, and I'm hanging it in the shop!!

Picture of a rock .... picture of the statue of David. Sub heading? "Both made from the same ingredients."

Picture of a paint by number .... picture of a Picasso. Sub heading? "Both made from the same ingredients."

Picture of the ugliest cake in the world (butter knife iced, grocery store candy letters) .... picture of a Sylvia Weinstock cake. Sub heading? "both made from the same ingredients."

Headline at the top of the page? "YES .... THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!"



OMG, I was cracking up at this image!! Oh yes, please do post the results of this. I think the cake you should use for the "bad cake" should be the one written out wrong from the grocery store. You know, that email that went around a while back with the "quote" on it?? icon_lol.gif

The widsom of Indydebi (and others on here), you can't put a price on! Worth more than gold they are! I, for one, am very grateful to all of them.

As far as the cake, I agree with the others. A nicely worded letter outlining your correspondence with the bride should do the trick.

Have a great day!
