Stop the insanity?? - Page 2

wow, I'm so glad that you guys were able to give me so much input.
I failed to mention that the class I was in was actually for a Communication requirement class. Sangria, I was hoping this class involved more public speaking because that is a MAJOR issue with me.
If I had to decide to make one cake either for my dh company or the class I would go with the class. The people at his office are more than familiar with the fact that I sell these cakes. The class is a whole new group that may be interested in buying a cake. If I bring in a cake I will definitly print out some flyers with pics of cake and prices of basic things.
Momofthree...my dh has already dropped hints to the person that buys cakes for the company parties. She contacted me about a cake a few months ago but when I mentioned that I charge about $1.50-$2.00 a slice she was shocked. She needed a cake for 80-100 people and a quoted her $120...I didn't get the order.

Hey Jenn,
I really feel for you because your generousity has obviously been taken for granted. I wouldn't give in to them though. It's one thing to give it out to people that have never seen your work just for the sake of gaining new clients but it's a completely different story when you're constantly giving them out to the same people. It takes a lot of time, effort and money to make a cake and a lot of people are ignorant to that. Stand your ground and tell people that if they want cakes they'll have to start paying for them.

Sorry I just forgot to mention that you did really well by not lowering your price for the lady that wanted the cake for 80-100 people. Sounds like it wasn't worth your time anyways!!!!!!!! And to top it off, in my opinion, you were even UNDER charging her!!

Daniela,
I had intentionally underpriced my cake for her. I figured with 80-100 people seeing and tasting my work it would generate more business but I wanted to make at least a couple of bucks....
