Ace of Cakes cake - Page 26

post #376 of 384
He has to do that to weed out some of the cakes that would just take up too much of his time and not really worth it. With the fan base they have, everyone and their little brother would want him to do their cake. And most of them wouldnt pay that much for a cake because they probably couldnt afford it. So he has to take customers that are seriously interested in paying them for their time and creativity. I understand stand that. A lot of FN chefs and cake decorators do get a minimum like that because they ARE famous. All the power to them! I would love to be in that kind of position. (either way, to be the decorator that could command that type of salary or the person that had that kind of money at their disposal). But Im not!
And people, there are dishonest people out there. People who make up stories just to get attention or just have no life of their own so they have to make everyone else miserable. But this woman went out of her way to tell us before her family even received the cake and was excited to tell us about it! Not everyone on here is out to get people and be dishonest. And if you accuse people without knowing the facts, thats just wrong. I agree with her daughter and the people that accused her should give her an apology. I just dont understand how people can go out of their way to be so mean to people.

I am new to CakeCentral and your thread was one of the first I saw. You did a great job posting and I loved the excitement you created, especially not being able to post the pictures, it just made the suspense more intense. It was like watching a TV show that leaves you hanging before the commercial or being continued the next night or week. It was kinda like who shot J.R. all over again.

I agree with most about the cake and I know you would have done a much better job at a fraction of the cost. We've seen the cakes that Duff's done and just expected a lot more. But still, a cake from Charm City Cakes is like a lock of hair or sweat from Elvis Pressley. Your niece is a very lucky woman to have a such a great husband. They sound like a fun couple.

Thanks for a great thread!!!!!!

Oh, no. President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

sorry, i'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that some think tht because you are paying for "the name" that some how means its ok for the product to be substandard. in my world it means the exact opposite. i think that there is a difference in the chosen design ("maybe that is what they wanted") and the quality of the execution of the design. and i agree that the cake is not what most would think of as a ccc standard quality cake. obviously, i am not anywhere near ccc level but i am a consumer and i would have been really upset if i had paid $2000 for a cake from them and that was what i got. i am a huge fan of the show and their work, i am just not sure that i will be saving my cake baking money to buy one of their creations. and that is just my opinion.
grrrrr!
