Never had to do this before but 2 weeks ago I had a bride approach me about a cake for early January and provided me with a thumbnail picture from the internet. I found a larger version of the cake and made a dummy "mock up" that she requested. Well I meet with her and she loved that the design was perfect but she wanted to tweak all the colors...no big deal. A week later she calls and asks what day we have set to meet up so she can check out the second "mock up" something I had not agreed to do since I just planned to show her the colors later but I said ok my next order for supplies is going in soon and the bulk colors were on backorder until the 18th so she would have to wait until then. She then started saying "If I couldn't do this particular cake we could go with her second option (her second option is twice as time consuming intricate piping and with my other orders that weekend I'm not sure I would want to do it)" Considering her only problem after the first meet was the colors and she is now thinking I "can't do this cake" my gut is telling me to run!!!!
She just called again and after the last call I went ahead and ordered some of my metallic colors to do this mock up again sooner. Well now she justs wants to change it to her second cake option but she wants the cake more ivory than pictured...I feel like she will find a major flaw with anything. She had approached a number of places here in town and they all told her the first cake was too time consuming and they wouldn't do it exactly that way and I'm sure they would say the same about the second. The design of the original cake was something I can do and did to her liking the first time and I told her my stuff would be in this week and I will do the mock up for next week but if there are any more phone calls I think I will just find a way to end this one.....what would you do?
