It's not like she has any reason to doubt me either; I've never forgotten or neglected a cake; I'm starting to feel almost offended! lol

I just keep telling her its all in hand and she's nothing to worry about and the cake will be baked nice and fresh for her big day.

At least in 3 weeks it'll all be over!

Does she think she's getting a fruit cake (or is she just one herself?)?!

My personal favorite is when someone wants to compare my cake prices with walmarts cake prices, my advice, if you want a cheap, previously frozen, mass produced cake then hit up walmart for your wedding cake! I have no problem turning cakes down. They are too much time and effort to make them for people who dont appreciate it.

We were recently planning a pot luck family dinner.

Family member who knows that I make cakes: I'm going to bring dressing and a strawberry cake!

My thoughts: you're a [insert foul language here]

I'm the kind of person that gets along with pretty much everyone I meet so before you think I'm being too harsh know that this particular family member is spiteful and we don't get along well...

Is it not the case that the alcohol would bake/cook out of the cake?  It should.  It would be like making a wine or vodka sauce when cooking.  I have seen many other posted recipes that call for liquor that all reflect based on the amount used and the baking process that the alcohol content cooks out.

I'd be tempted to go all out and say "oh, I thought you were bringing strawberries so I've made this DELICIOUS cake to go with them" and write rude words on the roof of my mouth with my tongue!

I recently had someone ask me, when they had emailed on Friday morning about a question for their cake due the next day, and I had responded with, "Well, the cakes were baked last night and I'm working on the decoration today.."

She emailed me back with, "I just wanted to make sure, so, even though you baked it yesterday, it will still be fresh on Saturday?"

 

I really wanted to respond with, "No, it won't. It will be totally stale. That's why I bake on Thursday every week and people keep coming back for more orders. Because I'm tired of you all and I've decided to start making crappy, stale cakes for a change."

I homeschool because I don't believe in the mass production of human beings.

"We don't want to waste the money on a big expensive cake, just a cheap fake cake is fine (insert picture of a 4tier cake here...), besides it'll be easier to cut and serve sheet cake/cupcakes, anyway."  .......???  First of all, there's no such thing as a cheap 4tier fake cake, and "waste the money"??  What exactly is that suppose to mean, anyway? To see all my hard work and yummy frosting go in the garbage- now THAT is a waste!

 

As far as the fondant quotes- "It should be cheaper, right?" ....umm....ya, because it's SO much easier!! 

And the bargaining on the price of a cake? That's another favorite!

People are so clueless, aren't they??  icon_smile.gif

I just had my first request yesterday to make a cake using FONDUE!  LMAO!  JEESH!

post #855 of 2783

FONDUE!!!!!!!  I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for someone to actually pour Fondue over a cake and try to serve it and see the customers reaction! Smiling sweetly saying you SAID you wanted FONDUE!  *snort*  HAHAHA
