cake tasting fee
i know i read on here a few days ago about another bride to be who was being charged for a cake tasting. how usual is this?
yesterday i emailed one of the two cake people i was considering to let her know that we went with another baker as we wouldn't meet her minimum cost with our guest count. i was shocked to get an email back from her today saying that i now owe her $20 for a consultation fee.
apparently, this little detail was on her web site but i certainly didn't notice it at the time and she never brought it up in any of our emails or at the consultation. i guess i have to pay her but i feel like i've been scammed - especially as we only met with her because she makes a special kind of cake we're looking for and she didn't even make it for the tasting!
