Declining cake beyond ones skill level? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Looking at it from a customer's perspective, I absolutely disagree with a cake decorator using my cake as practice for a skill she KNOWS she is not able to execute. While they may or may not be paying for the cake, it's a big deal. It's not a birthday cake where you can make a better one next year. An engagement cake or wedding cake is often a one-time affair for the couple. Vow renewals and co are not the same as that very first engagement cake or wedding cake. If the cake is going to be a point of attraction at my event, under no circumstance would I tolerate sub-par work because the cake decorator was feeling confident she could execute it when she knew it was beyond her skill level. Practice on your dime, not on mine.

I believe that you can offer alternatives as previously stated, being honest and telling the bride what they want is not something that you are confident with goes a long way in good business practices.
