OK, I just have to add this, I got a phone call last week from someone looking for an emergency wedding cake for 200 for last weekend (4 days lead time). They have a design in mind, it's something SIMPLE, you know, SIMPLE?
I get this emailed to me while they are on the phone and I had to mute the call I was laughing so hard. Your know, SIMPLE?
I asked the budget... $400 because it's so SIMPLE.
I think this oh so smart bride was following the "New Money Saving Advice of 2012" and waiting to the last minute to order a cake because, you know, us bakers will work for free last minute if we don't have another event booked for that weekend and they can get a DEAL!!!!!!
