things NOT to ask/say to a baker! - Page 121

post #1801 of 2803

true. I never gave a hoot about anything once the rings and clothes were bought. the chef hired and the dj paid. It wasn't perfect heck it was sooooo lazy-cheap it was hilarious. noone realized or complained because they had a whale of a time. people need to realize the volume of fun the guests have is not related to the amount of money spent. I dont think my "friend" gets that. as long as peoples guts are filled with tasty food and there is music in the air Caribbean people are going to dance up a storm even with no liquor.

...meadow....as if Jamaica has a meadows in the first place (shakes head)

Hey I can make her a $75 topsy turvy as long as she doesn't tell anyone who made it and promises to submit it to cake wrecks! lol

 

It will be make from 4 layers of cupcakes. I will even go with jumbo cuppies!

I just had my first Bridezilla! She was an old work colleague/kind of friend. She had changed her mind on the design three times, then changed her mind on whether she wanted sugar flowers, fresh flowers or fake flowers. 
She messaged me on Saturday to check what the size of the top tier was so she could get the fake flowers made up in the right size and I had mentioned that I hadnt recieved my invite yet, but she said she had sent it, so she gave me the details in a text message.
Last night I emailed her the order form/agreement to fill out, sign and send back to me. It is required of all my brides to fill it out, so I have all the contact details of the venue, and the earliest set up time etc.
This is how the conversation went afterwards (She is red):
 

Hi,
Could you please fill in the details regarding the venue details, and read and sign the other parts.
Thanks,
Liv
 

ummm... i gave u the details on the weekend yeah?
Its not working for me sorry.
If its all to much just say so dude, i can look into something else if its easier?


Hi, 
This form is required for all wedding cake orders, I also need you to read through the conditions and sign it. 
Every Bride who orders a wedding cake off my business needs to fill it out. 
I will send it as a PDF this afternoon as it usually opens better in that format.
Thanks, 
Liv


Seriously dude, I cant scan. Mayb we shoyld just not worry bout it, its getting to hard, i have to much other stuff going on to worry about the cake sorry dude.

Hi, 
It is up to you whether or not you continue to order your wedding cake through me or not, but you do need to tell me as I do not want to refuse orders for that week if you decide not to continue with the order.
It is a requirement to order one that you fill out that form and agree to the conditions, you are able to post it to me if you do not have access to a scanner. 
Thanks, 
Liv


cool, I think we will just have to leave it sorry dude.


Her wedding is in September, I think something is up, like she has another cake organised... if not good luck to her getting a cake now....I also told her that I am unable to attend the wedding due to not being able to get the day off as it a Thursday.... I now have a day off in the middle of the with nothing to do as I didn't accept any other orders for that week.

 yes something is up with her (and in more ways than just the cake order).

 

She just gave you four very clear signs/messages/red flags that this is not going to happen.

Pretty sure shes the only one in Australia that does... I was getting mega angry by the end of it... I just had to keep saying to myself "keep professional, you are the face of the business"

She sounds like a real PITA, dude.

 

Just be glad you got out of it when you did. Use that day off to catch up on some reading, take a bubble bath, and forget about this idiot.

Love is all you need. Well, love AND cookies.

Well a bubble bath does sound nice... I am very happy, I wasn't really looking forward to doing it as it was. I had given her a discount and it was $10 over her "budget" so that could be why she was so weird.
 
But I have a few theories as to what has led to her crazy bridezillaness:

- her friend who had taken a class and offered to make the sugarflowers to put on top of my cake, has said she will make the cake cheaper/for free
- she has just gone crazy and decided it was all to hard to do her signature so will go without a cake
- the weddings been called off

- they've run out of money

I'm really hoping that she will end up realising she can't get another cake that price and comes crawling back... and when she does I will be all booked that week... and in my bubble bath of course!

The only mistake you made with this was not ending it right after she wrote this to you. I would have replied "Okay" and left it at that. She's obviously up to something weird so who cares, have a nice sleep-in on your day off.

Definitely time to say goodbye to that PITA and enjoy your day off!
