A little respect goes a long way.

"Is the cake going to look like that or will you do a better job?"

This is a response someone got on another thread asking how to price a cake that she had attached a picture to. These (I think) are the kind of answers the OP of this thread is talking about. The person that made that comment of course has no pictures in their gallery, yet has the right to critique someone's elses work? That one line had no reason to be in the response at all...the OP wasn't asking about the work quality of the cake at all...just asked how to price.

It was my comment, and I stand by it.

The person posting that photo did not mention of who made the cake in question, and she (assuming that she's a woman) wasn't wondering about how she should go about figuring out pricing. She asked a direct question: 'How much should I charge?'.

The price of a cake should indeed reflect the quality of the work. As well as the quality of the ingredients, the amount of time making the cake, as well as any and all overhead.

I would never expect someone who just took their first Wilton class to achieve the same result as myself or any other very competent scratch baker/decorator, and thus they would have no business charging the same amount as I would.

No, I have no photos in my gallery. Why should I? And why should the fact that I have no photos in my gallery prevent me from criticising someone else's work? By the same reasoning I should then never be allowed to tell anyone that they did a great job (which I have, many times, in the gallery).

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Yes.

Price is directly linked to quality: a higher quality product can command a higher price, but if the skill level is not there yet the price would need to be adjusted downward. I probably wouldn't have put it the way Godot did but it is a valid point.

As am I. Completely legitimate question.
Well, all good things must come to an end sometimes. Hey, is that a cake?

That's normal "Godot behavior." The two-line comments that really hurt people.

Notice the appropriate answers on this other thread. Even though people were telling the truth to the OP, and not really giving her any puppies and rainbows, they were still tactful. Then, there's always the one person who comes over and says the wrong thing. *sigh*

Yep, it doesn't get much more hardcore than "oh my".

But I suppose that's normal "vpJane behavior", making a big deal out of nothing. icon_wink.gif

I need links to everything everyone said to back up their statements/opinions, otherwise I am just going to assume you are all trolls just trying to start some drama and pee in my Cheerios.

*giggles* Same old CC!! icon_smile.gif

OK, I just read that other thread, and I really feel that is a horrible example of "meanie" behavior.

But oh well.

It's a good thing we're all intitled to our opinions. Right, wrong, and everything in the middle.
