I recently received an order for a cake that was for a woman’s two sons birthdays. She is the sister of a girl I use to work with so I gave her a deal and quoted her 85 for a three tier detailed Ninja Turtle cake with fondant. I also gave her a two tier option for 65. She never responded and the date for the cake is the 28th. She hasn’t returned any of my messages and if I don’t get started on some of the detail work by tomorrow there is no way I can finish the cake without pulling a few all nighters (since I’m a stay at home mom with a 10mo old this would be extremely stressful!) I feel almost like she thought I was charging too much and was out of her price range but she hasn’t said anything to me about it. What should I do? Message her and tell her I need to know by tonight? Or just leave it alone and if she messages me tomorrow or early next week just tell her I don’t have time to do the cake?
this is the first time this has happened so I don’t know what I should do!
