First off, let me say I'm so glad I found this forum. I bake and design wedding cakes and always like to talk with my fellow bakers. On to the issue. When I deliver my wedding cakes, the bride has agreed to leave flowers and greenery at the cake table, so I can finish the cake at the venue. I had something happen today that has never happened. I delivered the cake to a home that was rented for the weekend and the wedding. I go to the cake table and the are 2, dollar store flowers and that was it. I asked the girl helping the bride were there any more flowers or greenery. She says "oh sure" and brings me 2 plastic pieces of eucalyptus. At first I was very surprised that she would pay $197 for a wedding cake and plastic flowers. Then I felt bad and had to ask God to forgive my thought. Maybe that was all she could afford. My questions is, what should I carry with me next time, incase this happens again. I really feel mad at myself for feeling miffed. Every bride to have a special cake and she hired me to do that for her. I did my very best to make it as pretty as I could. It was a small 2 tiered semi-naked cake, so there were no other decorations. Thanks for any ideas in advance.
