I'm curious if you will also be making the wedding cake as a paid for cake?  If not doyou really want someone elses cake next to your cake?  If the wedding cake is yucky people may think you made it too.

I was a stay at home mom for my daughter for 2 years until she started kindergarten and had my son, who is 4. (I had him exactly 1 month after my daughter turned 5!) so, I have been a SAHM for 4 years and a WAHM for 2. I must say that I practically cling to other adults, and have had to set a timer that sounds like a phone so I don't talk my clients heads off! And now that the little one is 4 1/2 and going into preschool, I have been doubling up on birth control, and my husband is getting a vacectomy!

I worked until my oldest was 6, which was when my youngest was born with some complications and I was no longer able to work. I haven't worked for 3 years now, it's impossible to maintain a career while having to take endless days off for medical appointments. I hope that I'll be able to get back to work when he starts kindergarten, but we'll see.

Hahahahaha! I always had something part time on the weekends when my husband was home with the kids, but even being at home all day with a baby and toddler made my brain start to melt. When you start trying to prolong conversations with any adult who's working the supermarket checkout just to have adult conversation you know you need to get out of the house more.

Uh.... You're not supposed to prolong conversations at the check out? Oops!

And I get dressed up to go to restaurant depot, it's in a bad part of down town, and all the guys who work there "appreciate" my ghetto booty, lol. I love the attention. I need it. Hahaha <---- manic laughing

Okay, not really, I don't have to dress up, and I don't need it, but I do get a lot of attention there icon_smile.gif

I'm going to start pressing my card into the checkout persons hand, and the people behind me at the store, and say "call me! Well talk more later!" Ooh! Ooh! I have a stamper with my business info on it, I will just stamp their hands! Bwahahaha!

You're just not right.  That must be why we love you.

"But I can get two tiered fondant cakes for 50-55 people for 75 $, cause I got it like that"
Hey everybody! Check out google.com ! This is clearly an attempt to direct traffic onto that site and away from cake central. Because everyone knows you can only have one browser open!

Client: How much is a cupcake?

Baker: Asks how many pcs does client need so baker can quote her a good price

Client: (out of nowhere mentioned another seller)  So-so's cupcakes are quite good

Baker muttered under her breath: then go buy from her, what are you bothering me for if you like her cupcakes?

 

Same client bought lemon cake then later feedbacked that it was a bit sour ( I make it a point to bake extra so I can have a taste before the cake goes out, thought it was fine) I'm like, of course it has some sourness to it, it's lemon icon_cry.gif

 

Sometimes I wonder if it's even worth the time and effort to make something from scratch for a client like that. I've vowed not to accept any orders from that client ever again.

I'm just a hobby baker too. One line I hate aswell is "Wow, you should go on Masterchef!". Obviously they don't know the difference between cooking and baking -_-

I would just say "I'm sorry you didn't know. Cake is an art form, so like PAINT, we have many COLOURS. If the rainbows not enough, I know a leprechaun who would happily change this for you". Some people have no appreciation for bakers icon_evil.gif

Just start acting all excited and say "oh my God, if you can get it for that amount you'd better go get it before they realize they're making $2 an hour! Really, run! GO! GO! Why are you still here, GO AWAY QUICKLY!"
