My dillema I have is my husband's cousin is marrying a friend of mine. I told her 4 years ago that when they got married I would make her wedding cake. Well, the problem I'm having is she's one of the get stuff done last minute type of brides...her wedding is in 2 weeks and I just now got a chance to sit down with her and discuss her cake.
I had told her that I had planned on my wedding gift being their wedding cake since I was friends with her and the groom was family. During our meeting she tells me that as of this morning the RSVP was at 205 and there was still several who hadn't sent in their RSVP cards. And to make matters worse my husbands cousin keeps inviting people who he runs into.
So now not only do I have a last minute wedding cake to hustle to do but this cake is going to have to be huge and what I was thinking would only end up being a low priced cake I could be charging $400 or more! So I'm not sure what to do because this may be my husbands cousin and friend but I wasn't planning on giving them a $500 gift!!
What should I do...talk to her about it or just go along as I had previously stated back in February about it being a gift?
I'm also at a loss about how to transport such a large cake. The seign she has picked out is going to require precise placement of each tier. I'm considering trying to talk her into have a regular fancy cake and then a grooms cake in the grooms choice of cake (the only cake the groom will eat is funfetti....yes I know!!) and make two less large cakes then one giant cake.
Any advice or comments are welcomed!
