This bride cracked me up, thinkin shes so slick.... (long)

post #1 of 113
Thread Starter 
Ok here is a copy of the email she sent me about a cake she is wanting:

Hello, Thanks for the reply. Them are good lookin cakes altho we are wanting a scary cake. Here is a description of what we want i def want a blood look in the castle some how.... also we got to thinkin about another idea.... In the wedding me being the bride is goin to be dressed as a witch! an the groom is being freddy so we was thinkin of maybe havein a castle or haunted house castle an makein half theme freddy an half theme witch. We would also like the cake to look like its been split in the middle by freddys claws. Also we would like it to be in tiers like a castle on the bottom and then maybe those cone lookin things on the castle holdin up another tier, atleast two more tiers on top if poss. The main top would be a small one with our weddin topper that we can keep for our first anniversary. then the second one dont matter the size but we have our own haunted house an we would like our name to be on that part of the cake which would be like this" Slaughter Yard Wedding" If you think you are up for the challange please let me no, i have a few ppl that has offered to do our cake but of course im lookin for the best deal so tell me about what ur price range is an how much u think a cake like this will cost an also the other cake decription how much it would cost. I love the pics u sent them is a really great job an i would love to have you make our cake. Our wedding is not until sept so u got plenty of time to be creative. again any ideas feel free to let me no.


wow! Okay. "g's" must be against her religon...lol. Thats besides the point. Here is my reply


Just by the description of the tiered cake with the castle holding up the second tiers and all the details, you are going to be in the $1200.00 to 1500.00 range. The large castle cake alone with blood and the freddy slashes would be around 800.00. Its really hard to give an exact price with out the number of servings you would need and all the details worked out and the cake drawn up on paper. There are alot of options that we can do to get you the cake you dream of and to work within your budget. I am almost booked for September now, so if you are interested we should schedule a consultation and get your date booked.

Her very next email.


hello, thanks for the reply your pics look awesome altho the price doesnt.... i have someone that says they can do it for $325 an i seen there cakes an they are pretty great. If ur willin to work on price a lil more let me no. There will b no more then 100ppl let me no thanks

Are you freaking kidding me!?!

She has got to be out of her gourd.

My reply:
That is a great deal for 325.00, I would snatch it up if I were you. My price is firm. Remember, you get what you pay for.

I think my response my have been harsh. She was really trying to work down that price. No way would anyone do the cake she described for that price!

Are you sure it wasn't a scam? Sounds a little fishy to me and can anyone be that dumb?

Oh barf. I'd have a hard time believing that was a legitimate request.

OMG, firstly the whole wedding sounds beyond a joke, and her wishes for that budget are the biggest laugh I've had this year!

WOW! And she couldnt wait to have her wedding on Halloween?! This woman is a joke. I had a hard time reading her email. She needs to go back to school. I would love to see that $325.00 wedding cake of hers. LOL

This email is the result of this person's texting all her life! Evidently, anything is acceptable when one is texting!

All I could think is that for $325.00 she WILL get the scary (very scary) cake she's after......especially if it's 3 tiers with the bottom tier being a castle and slashes through the middle.

I have a feeling we're going to be seein (lol no g's) this thing on cake wrecks!

Wow...I am speechless at her lack of the English language. Honestly I quit reading about 1/4 of the way through. I just couldn't handle it..ugh
I did go back and pick up the pieces though.

As someone mentioned above, maybe that is the outcome of someone texting all their life but this has me afraid for this bride to come out into the real world and have to deal with people face to face. WHEW!

Anyway, I don't think your reply was harsh. Let her go get that "cheap" cake. As you said "you get what you pay for" and that is SO true.
I have a feeling that if you took this order you would have a real headache dealing with her before it was all over.

hugs!

One thing I will say...if the grammar is so bad it is incoherent, chances are they are a bargain basement bride that wants a Neiman Marcus cake at a Walmart bakery price.
