(whereas before that was brought up, it was NO, you HAVE to tell them the truth, don't skirt around it, don't try to sugar coat the fact it isn't from "scratch" - you have to just say NO it isn't)
Yep, double standard, if you ask me.
But the customer isn't asking about the fondant. My buttercream is made from scratch, and I have been practicing making fondant from scratch as well.
However, at the moment, if a customer asked me, "Is everything made from scratch?" I would be honest. I would reply that while the cake and buttercream are, I am currently shipping in Satin Ice fondant. (and I would definitely be sure to explain that it doesn't taste like Wilton's! lol
