Do I bring a gift?

Forum: Cake Decorating Business

If I am the cake decorator and I am invited to the wedding, do I bring a gift? I don’t think I would be invited if I wasn’t doing the cake. I didn’t charge her for delivery and setup.

Are they paying for the cake tho? X

Kristi ...

Yes, they are paying for the cake. I gave them a 10% discount on the cake and didn’t charge a delivery or setup fee.

Hmmmm…good question. I have the same dilemma coming up next month so I’m interested in the replies. I am actually going to charge full price for my cake though because I gifted them a baby shower cake a couple months ago.

I would say yes you have to bring a gift if they are paying for the cake. The cake is not being considered your gift. Even if you decided to give them a 10% discount and no delivery charge.

Did you decide to give them these discounts before or after you were invited as a guest?

Essentially Cakes ...

I have a similar dilemma for tomorrow. Have been invited to a combined christening and 1st birthday party to deliver and set up cakes I have made. I have finally decided to just take a card as have put too much time and effort into cakes to go shopping for gifts too (also relatives, so massive discount for 20" fruit and 2 tier sponge)

If you hadn’t been invited to the wedding would they still have gotten the discount and free delivery? If the answer is yes, then buy a gift.

I would bring a gift -you could always give them a gift certificate for a cake to be use at their next event as a married couple!
