Oops - you mean it was today? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Glad it all worked out.

As a side note...according to your post the friend called Monday night asking for a different icing to be used. It didn't sound like you had ever used this type before. I think this should be a learning leson as well:
Don't try new things on a clients cake especially the day the cake is due.

Always do a trial run. If there isn't time, tell the person so. While they may be disappointed they will learn and in the future give you enough notice to make changes.

On the other hand all the "ingredients she asked to be used and would pay her back for" were used. The cake was eaten. There needs to be reimbursement.
If she'd paid your for your "skill" that would require a refund.
Ask her for the cost, if she balks. Then she's not a friend. Does she think you have $45 to spend on her disappointment?

I'm currently sitting on an over due $178 from a bride who threw an extra 75 serving into her order a week before the wedding. She'd already paid for the original cake.
I trusted her to pay me because she and my daughter are such good friends. Billed her and no response. It sucks. But now I have drop the emotions and put on my "business pants' or I'm out the money.

With nine kids, a husband that just got lost another %5 because he works for the failing California government...that's a lot of groceries! Friends don't take money out of your kid's mouth.

I'm giving her one more week ( a month from the wedding) and I'm sending the registered letter.
