Like everyone else has said to you the cake looks beautiful. You deserve ever bit of that $75 dollars. Just cause there were a few problems with the cake, the picture does not show it.

The more I hear, the more I think brides think they're SUPPOSED to act miserable about something--anything-- on their wedding day. Reality TV syndrome: "Everybody's doing it...guess I should too."

I understand your feelings of being concerned and uncomfortable. I have not been doing wedding cakes for long and I learn something new everytime! I think the hardest for me was confidence. Now I work for a grocery store and am considered a "wreckerator" by some. I try my best with every cake I make. Sure I have had some wonderful wrecks! If we didnt have wrecks, it would be a boring proffesion!
Always remember that 75-90% of cake decorating is covering up "mistakes".
and MOST of allIf the bride was not happy with her $75.00 cake ( that is beautiful by the way!) she would not be happy with a 750.00 cake either. Pick up your chin, smile and move on to the next cake! KNow there are many of us just like you too! icon_wink.gif

I totally agree! $75 is more than fair, and they knew this was the second cake wedding cake you have made. They knew this up front and took the risk that something could go wrong. It looked great and they definately got their money's worth!

Mimi,
I have had the same problem with fondant dots falling off the fondant. What do you recommend for adhering them securely?

Thank you all for your confidence boosting posts. I am starting to feel much better about this cake. Also, thank you for the great advice about sticking fondant, to fondant. That is a great peice of advice for the future.

I did a wedding cake for a co-worker as a gift but told her she had to pay for the supplies. After about 3 weeks of phone calls I finally got my money. Love the girl but not giving her a $100 gift! The cake is beautiful, unfortunately the rudeness of the ungrateful bride is bringing you down. Id start calling for my money!

Boy, how i wish you had charged them more, delivery included. get your $75 and never charge that little again. the cake looks great to me. worth way more than $75.

$75.00 on this cake is a steal! I would not consider giving them a discount.....

All I can say is "$75 my ask". M best cake doesn't look as good as your disaster. Make them pay. I just hate it when people try to get something for nothing.
Here lately my memory hasn't been that good and not only that, my memory hasn't been that good either.

Is that the most beautiful avatar you've ever seen or what?

I would have charged at least $250 for this cake, issues or not, so go get your money. Also, if you ever watch Food TV, you'll feel a lot better about your own cakes. I used to think I was the only one having problems until I watched the masters and all their cake problems. Now, I know that we all have them and the sign of a good decorator is when you can cover them up and still get compliments. I think the being late part was what the bride was tore up about but it doesn't warrant a free cake. You're not Domino's in the 80s. Just have to start earlier next time. I always try to be done at least two hours before the cake is due so I'm not stressing and they surely won't stress.

That is a totally lovely cake!!! and worth the retail price, for sure. These snotty little bridezillas just make me want to slap their snotty little faces. A lack of gratitude is one of my pet peeves.

Unfortunately, your friend is in for a rough ride with that little princess. Hope she grows up someday.
