"Why are your cakes so expensive" ?! Hmm well see the thing is.......... - Page 2

post #16 of 20

I fixed the links - they should work now

post #17 of 20
I have had several people come for a consultation and then tell me later that they are getting the cake from some aunt or cousin or friend of the MIL.... They knew they were getting the cake for free before they came to me and wasted my time and money and energy. I am seriously thinking of charging again, but no one else around here does it... It is such a conundrum!
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.

Could you not apply a charge for the consultation/tasting which will be applied to the cost of the cake if they eventually book with you?  That way those who book with you are actually not paying for their consult/tasting and the ones who want to waste your time are paying for the priviledge and the ones who want free cake will go bother someone else.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.
