Ouch, that hurts....my ego!

post #1 of 123
Thread Starter 
I have always wanted to make a wedding cake for family or friends, but well, my family is small and everyone I know is already married.

Until... my mother mentioned last week that one of my cousins is getting married again in the fall. That brought an instant smile to my face! Although I don't know her that well (that is an understatement, the last time I saw her is over a decade ago, she lives 200 km south), I always believed her to be very kind.

I sent her an e-mail that same day, telling her that the wedding cake was my present to her, that I would personally bring it to a location of her choice and that she could choose whatever design and flavor she wished. God, I really felt like making that cake!

I received her reply this morning...
She and her future husband 'appreciated' the offer, but after looking at the cakes on my website, they decided to decline my offer because they prefer a professional looking wedding cake icon_eek.gificon_confused.gif

are you serious??????/

I can't imagine a cake looking any more professional than the ones you've got posted here! You have amazing talent with cakes.

You know what??......just sit back and relax, once they get that "PROFESSIONAL" price tag......they'll be crawling back!

Wow! That is tactless! Why wouldn't they just say something like "they have their heart set on ordering from a local bakery that they love," or that "they've already made arrangements," or any number of excuses that would avoid telling you that they think you suck....which you don't. Weird. Rude. Tactless.

ok, I just looked at your website and it's more professional looking than MOST sites I've seen (honestly). I can't read a lick of it......but it's gorgeous! lol

You have got to get pics of her wedding cake and update us!!!! I have a feeling she's going to be a bridezilla and wind up with a terrible cake after putting her baker through a living torment for 9 months leading up to the wedding!!!
