I'd just tell them "ok", but it will be $$$$ (my choice) for the class, depending on the season, and they would have to supply their own cookies and decorating materials. I would be "very happy to supply a supplies list")!! And I would pick the day(s) for the class. No problem!

But let's talk about cakes.
I love you.
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!

I would be happy to send cupcakes to everyone, for whatever the going rate is ;-) What does Magnolia do them for?  for 6 for 24? Plus $45 for shipping? I would sell 6 cupcakes for $70 all day, lol!

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.

Aw, don't worry about it. He was just clued in by you. Probably did him a favor.

He is the new boyfriend of a longstanding client who is recently divorced, and the cake is for her, so I guess he doesn't want to look like a cheap skate, lol.

That's our society...it starts in school. Everybody gets a trophy just for participating then the govt fosters it as they grow. The "kids" we have been getting in the Navy the last several years are horrid to deal with. They all want something for nothing then when they don't get it they yell discrimination, favoritsim, soso talked mean to me and we have to go give them big hugs (exaggeration a lil) and the leadership has to have sensitivity training. No way this country can survive if we keep going in this direction. There will be all takers and no producers. Sorry...that's my rant for the day

I agree!

Rest assured that we are not all raising kids like this. No matter who is in office.

Was just discussing this same thing literally seconds ago with a dear friend. Specifically discussing my 26 yo renter and how I don't think  she knows she is rude...but this is a cake site and I will keep my opinions about the degradation of civilized society to my FB page where no one listens to me either! lol

Actually, I have worked to be paid when my boss came up with the money. Of course, when I did so, I was working a video crew for my best friend. And on other occasions, again working video crews for my best friend, I've refused any pay, both for cases in which his financial hardship was extreme, and for cases when I felt that my job performance failed to measure up to my own standards. (And I spend most of my Saturdays docenting at the International Printing Museum, in Carson, CA, for nothing more than getting unfettered access to graphic arts equipment for personal projects.


But those are cases in which I'm working for my best friend, or I chose, on my own initiative, to become a museum docent.

I wouldn't even do that. My orders have to be paid in full at least three weeks before for wedding cakes. For smaller things I still make them pay in advance. I find that when people pay anything at delivery they tend to forget to pick things up, and I end up stuck with something I don't need. If you order custom furniture they make you pay in full when the order is placed, so why should we be different? custom anything makes it pretty much impossible to transfer that specific item to someone else, so pay in advance or you don't get it.
