Reply Pricing Cakes & getting told it's to expensive.. Sheesh!

Tina ...

yah same here… when i gave a quote 2 things happen, they booked or ran away lols… my thinking is like “well if u cannot afford me then scram! or if they can, well then i am goin to give u my best!” plus i submit sample cakes pix b4 i work on the final and agreed design.. i rather sleep than work on a cake that i know i am not paid for all its worth, and even if the client says ‘just make it simple’ -( translation: simple and cheap)… goodness i cannot understand what is simple to them, coz everytime i am workin on a cake i dont stop till i am so dang happy and proud of it! my principle is; i am practicing a lot, meaning my skills are improving, so my pricing must be too, besides i dont want the reputation as the cheap cake lady! its nice and inspiring to be spending a lot of time workin on a creation knowing it is paid for all the effort and time consumed. i am a newbie just 5 mos old on the biz but as much as possible i want to start right to stay inspired! :D
