things NOT to ask/say to a baker! - Page 113

At Kroger, you buy 10 or any item that is 10 for 10, and get the deal, so you could mix and match.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Until recently I never saw that you HAD to buy ten to get the deal, or whatever it was, but you didn't. Now I've seen a couple of stores put labels on that say you have to buy a certain number to get the sale price, so you have to pay attention. I'm super cheap, so I pay attention to things like that.

It's true; some do and some don't. I hate that they are giving me something else I have to think about, like remembering that we are out of ketchup isn't enough.
When something is 10 for $10 and you have to buy all ten to get the deal I have to consider whether the deal is good enough to warrant the space all ten of these things will take up in my house. Sometimes the real estate is just more valuable.

LOADS!

'What's your favourite?' to which I answer my favourite. Proceeded by customer ignoring my choice and proceeding to go with Vanilla Sponge. AGAIN.

 

'Can you do Black Forest Gateau like *insert my cake competitions* Black Forest Gateau'?

 

'Can you use fresh cream please? And deliver it 3 days in advance? Oh I don't have a fridge by the way..'

 

Requests intricate carved 3D cake and *only wants it to serve 5 people*

 

FACEPALM! :P

My answers in order are
1. My competator owes me money and we are not on speaking terms at the moment, but mine is better anyway.
2. I will deliver any time you want. Just sign this release form saying I am no longer responsible for the quality of your cake upon delivery. Thank you.
3. If you've got the money, I've got the time. Your cake will stand 5" tall and look really silly on your table and I charge extra for intricate detail.

After having a afterschool job as a checkout chick at a supermarket I learnt that the multi buys (10 for $10) would change the price of that product once you had fulfilled the ten for $10, so for example if I bought 14 of a product that was on special for 10 for $10 that was usully $2 each, then it would cost $14 instead of $18
Works in coles and im pretty sure woolworths in aus!

Speaking as a model railroader, quite accustomed to building rolling stock, structures both simple and elaborate, and even the occasional locomotive in 1:87 scale, out of materials including cardboard, plastic, wood, and brass, I don't see why an elaborate sculpted cake scaled to serve 5 (especially if that's with enough extra servings to provide several days worth of leftovers)  would look "really silly."

It would look like a cupcake in drag, which is silly.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Owatto, without looking at your location I read "checkout chick" and thought to myself, got to be a fellow Aussie.  Love it   :)
