and....oh wow, how rude of that person.
I'm with you on covering cake boards. I only cover them if it's part of the theme.
The problem I have is that I seem to dent, knock, or get things on the board so I don't cover it unless I really have to.
I have come across one or 2 cake makers that have been a bit catty, but that might have been just how they are, not because they make cakes. I've not taken cake making on as seriously as I could do due to having a large family, and not enough time to commit at the moment.
I am always wanting to learn, improve and get advice, so even at the stage I'm at now, will gladly take constructive and helpful criticism........and won't get too offended if it's negative.
You will always find someone who will express their opinion on-line, especially on facebook. I'm sure if they were standing in front of you, they would chose their words a bit more carefully.
Is the comment clear on your cake group for all to read? I can have a look if it is
It will get better as you progress and get used to prices of ingrediants/cakeboards etc.
The hardest thing to price up is your time, and the one thing that I think people sometimes under-value.
It's hard to get advice on pricing cakes. Theres a lot to take into consideration with cost from beginning to end. With the
odd orders I've had recently, if I work out what I've earned for my time, it's been about £2.00 an hour so I'm just
keeping cakes as a hobby, or for family.
...anyway, hope it all works out for you
