First, the bride who decided since her vendors don't take credit cards, she wouldn't be paying some of us. But that's in another thread.
Then, last night I had a tasting. First, they show up with 5 people. I allow 4. So right off the bat, I'm ticked because they KNEW this and now I have to squish people in.
Bride ordered 6 sample flavors (paid for 4 of them, 2 were complementary). VERY specific flavors. I boxed up 3, allowed them to sample 3.
First flavor, "oh yum."
Second flavor is white cake with espresso and caramel. MOB says- why'd you order THIS? No one likes coffee! Bride says the groom likes coffee. Groom says, well yeah, but I don't like to EAT coffee. So they all bite into it and complain because it tastes like coffee.
OK... moving on, the next is lemon poppy with rasp fill. Complaint, it tastes like raspberry.
Then, they mention they don't really like chocolate. Guess what 2 of the 3 other samples are? Red Velvet and Guinness Stout with Ganache. Now, I get that Red Velvet isn't really chocolate, but you KNOW that there will be issues.
Or maybe it will be too red or something. *beats head against wall*
