I have been known to tell a customer or two:

Your lack of planning is not my emergency. Your lack of following the rules is not my problem either.

What i gather daughter is pretty upset since she is not getting married so she thought she should have a big baby shower cake to replace the abscense of a big wedding.



As I was reading the 1st post, that's exactly what I thought would happen!

I figured that mama had no intention of paying for an expensive cake and so rather than fess up to being cheap, she'd try to make it out as your incompetence!!!!

We live in an era of "if you can think of a way to make it someone else's fault--go for it!" Makes me sick, too.

I'd be calling that beotch and telling her that if she continues to malign my business practices, I'll be suing her for defamation and loss of revenue due to slander.

Heck, I'd take out an ad in the local paper/pennysaver stating that I was NEVER paid to make a cake for the XXX baby shower and that despite current rumors, I had no REASON to show up with a cake because I hadn't been hired to do so!!!!!!!! icon_mad.gificon_evil.gif

Kidding? NOT! icon_twisted.gif

He asked why and I said "because you are nice and nice people deserve a break". The jerks that come in and act like your momzilla...just keep on going...we don't need them!

It's always nice to do something special for someone because they deserve it and not because they expect it or demand it. thumbs_up.gif

I made a three tier cake with six small cakes last weekend. I told the lady that I would email her a picture on Friday of three choices of ribbon as she wanted gold ribbon on the cake so she could pick which one she wanted. I heard nothing. I also told her that she would need to pay the remainder of the balance on Friday the day before the event nothing. So I sent her and email stating that I informed her that she needed to pay for the cake by Friday and pick the ribbon. If I didn't hear from her by 1:00pm on Saturday that she would need to make arrangements to pick up the cakes that I would no longer be able to deliver them and she also had to send the remaining payment on pickup. She called me at 8:30am the next morning giving me excuses on how crazy everything has been. I'm sorry but honestly I don't care. I told her that I needed one months notice to make gumpaste roses for her cakes she gave me three weeks. I also asked her to send me a picture of the flowers on her daughters dress as she wanted me to match them so she sends me a picture of a flower she found online. I had to wing it on the color since I didn't have an actual picture of her dress. She waited so long to decide on the cake I received my supply shipment the day before I had to assemble the cakes. I think these people think we wave our magic wand and poof there is a cake. Don't feel bad it's their fault not yours they did it to themselves.
