Ugh...don't get me started! I have been making cakes for over 25 years and this funny thing recently happened to me.
My son recently got married and I made his cake ... of course.... :). Their wedding coordinator whom I've known 'of' since she was a teenager was just as sweet as could be and began recommending me to her soon to be married couples. After a few of them had come for tastings and interviews, she sent me a lengthy email detailing some "feedback" from them. She noted that as a "new baker" they felt I was overpriced and not cheaper than any of the local cake shops.
Ummmm... I've been doing this for over 25 years... gone are the days of freebie cakes...and I'm not trying to undercut anyone. You either want to pay me for the cake or you don't. Not concerned with bowing down and begging for you business.. run along now... I have a paying customer to attend to. :) lol
I'm absolutely not sure if because she had never been in my circle before and didn't know I was a baker she assumed my son's was the first cake I'd ever made???
