Ok, I had refused to partake in this nonsense since it started to escalate into something more than what it originally was.
Kifornee & Sara - Thank you very much for the acknowledgement.
Sonja (The Cake Lady) - I pray that your daughter has regained her health 100% and hopefully you can get back to work and continue to show us your beautiul artwork and creativity through your cakes. You truly do make beautiful cakes.
Everyone else - Let me set the record straight and hopefully those who choose to carry on this drama may be able find something else to do with their time like "Read a book!"
Now, Kifornee originally contacted me about a cake for her daughters birthday cake 'months' ago, however, she then became undecided on whether or not she would hold a birthday party. So as a 'normal business person' would do, I continued to take orders and focused on fundraising events I participate in with my fraternity. THEN, when Kifornee did decide to have a birthday party I had told her that my weekends for the month of September were completely booked! THIS IS when she contacted Sonja!
Question: This makes sense right? If you can't get the product from one store you go to another? Answer: RIGHT!!!!!
Now, to set the record straight - I suggested to Kifornee that she contact Brittany or Sonja but Brittany had taken her ad down. (No disrespect to you Brandy but I know Brittany and I have tasted Sonja's cake myself). It was NOT until Sonja had contacted Kifornee to inform her that she would be unavailable that I had decided to make the cake for Kifornee's daughter. By the way, both Kifornee's family and mine are very good friends, so for me to suggest that she commission 'someone else' to make her daughters cake obviously indicates that I DO NOT have a problem with it!
As for Sara, I have never met her or spoke to her in my life! She was a customer in desperate need of a cake for a birthday party and I am thankful for her that everything worked out.
I myself have spoken to Sonja about a cake that I have asked her to make for a district conference I will be attending in December and we both agreed that this whole argument on NAH is RIDICULOUS!!
@ Tyler -I agree wholeheartedly!
@ D - It appears that you were looking for another response to this blog which appeared to be over with the nice little humor Carly had left...Why would you have to "Light the Fire" up again?
FINAL NOTE: CAKE IS CAKE - IT IS A DELICIOUS DESSERT THAT IS MADE FOR PEOPLE TO ENJOY DURING CELEBRATIONS, DONT' TURN IT INTO A SUBJECT FOR AN ARGUMENT!
I hope that this will end the argument and I appreciate the acknowledgements from the 2 women who originally posted and I believe Sonja had the last word - let's try to leave it at that!
Marilyn - Heavenly Cakes!
