Sarah --Sorry about not getting back to you right away--I am not wanting a cake for 200 people I just want a small one for pictures because I am having a choc. fountain in place of a big cake---so I have checked around before finding you and was quoted a price of $75.00 how much would it be for 100 people?
and this is what I sent back...Now I feel bad I sent it, but I was shocked and I wasn't sure if I should believe her or if she was just trying to get a better deal. Let me know what you would have done.
Wow! $75.00!!! They must be taking a big loss or doing you a major favor. The ingredients alone would cost more than $75.00 because I make everything from scratch. The cake plate it is displayed on, supports(dowel rods and cake plates-so the cake doesn't collapse), the , box, cake flour, butter, eggs, white chocolate for the fondant, not to mention delivery...I have no idea how someone could do that and be able to just break even not to mention the time it takes to do that kind of cake. Even if it was and only buttercream cake. I am in shock...definetly thank whoever gave you that deal. I am so sorry I can't match that price. I wish I could have helped you and I wish you luck on your upcoming marriage. If for any reason you ever need my services feel free to contact me.
Thanks so much,
So what should I have done???
