We all know about this one, but I just feel the need to vent - Page 2

I don't know why you're all being so mean about this. The person who's charging $140 will be making at least $3 an hour after expenses. That's more money than she started out with, so she's making a good profit! :twisted:

Putting it like that, making 50 cents per hour would also be making a profit. Charging $140 means she's price gouging. I'm so tired of these people who claim they sell affordable cakes but are really just out to rip-off the public.

I wouldn't say they are ripping off the public (if they are making great cakes)...there's nothing wrong with the public getting a good deal.  On anything other than cake, that is.  LOL

 

They're taking money out of our pockets.  That's what is bad...

 

Not being snarky, but is that what you meant? :detective:

Aah, cake. . .the 5th food group!!

Wow, well done, I didn't think to google the photo, that is it spot on.  And yes if they did do this cake perfectly for $140.00 it would piss me off more than seeing it on Cake Wrecks.  Just before I came on here I was doing the staff wages for the week and if you had to turn over enough to pay yourself and seven other people, and this was the only income you and the staff live on, this kind of thing bites even more. Sorry I'll stop ranting now.
