I would let them know up front the cost of the cake before the deal is done so the customer is not shocked when the time comes to pickup or deliver the cake. Also, I tell my customers that I don't carry change at pickups and deliveries icon_biggrin.gif

I used to work for someone who "played business" (not cakes) and it was so frustrating to show her that in some instances, it would be better to have less sales to certain places, because it was costing us money every time we sent something, but she only saw the increase in business, not the decrease in income. I would bang my head in the wall (almost) every time I showed it to her and it would not penetrate. Then her son came into the business and faught with her about it and straightened up the place, it is now a multi-million dollar a year business because it is run like a real business.

Don't worry, the oven was off. I had opened it to adjust the racks, and he climbed on the door. I figured i can get a pic b4 I heat it up.(with him far away in the other room). It's almost time to change it, it's almost a year old.
