So a few days ago, I got a text from a new client asking if I can make a sugarless cake. I said sure. Little did I know, it was the beginning of a few days of chaos for me. She basically spent the next few hours questioning every answer I gave her.
What kind of cake do you have?
What kind of frosting?
What does it look like?
Oooo you have Instagram?
Can you make it look like this?
Instead of strawberries, can put raspberries?
So expensive? Okay, stick to strawberries. Can add maybe one or two raspberries?
Still same price? Okay. Don’t want raspberries. Can put blueberries?
Eh, you can put flowers?
How much? So expensive? What if you just put maybe one or two flowers?
Can make it just blue flowers?
What about nuts? Can add nuts?
Do nuts have sugar in them?
If mix of walnuts and pecans, you think it’ll be too much?
But how much will that cost?
This was basically the gist of the conversation I had to endure. It went on all weekend. She needed the cake on Wednesday and by Monday morning she still hadn’t made up her mind on what her final cake will look like and consist of. But the questions kept coming. I finally told her, she would need to decide now. More questions followed.
Can I confirm tomorrow?
You don’t need that much time right? Sugarless cake very fast to make right?
Somehow in her delusional mind, hers was the only cake I was making. Also, in her delusional mind was the fact I had a raspberry tree in my garden where I can just pluck one or two raspberries as and when I please. In that same delusional mind, she also thinks that I have an entire garden of edible flowers. But the best part, somewhere in her delusional mind, she actually thinks I have the time to deal with all her questions. The poor delusional woman. I ended up telling her that I’m not her personal baker and that I have other orders to attend to. Also told her to google sugarless cake recipes. Really… What is going in the head of some people?
