Things you need to understand about cake makers... When they've made an effort with nail varnish on toes, lippy and they happily take a day trip, the cakes are all done for that week. The relief is palpable
When you walk into their house and there is an open litre bottle of vodka on the table, that's edible paint thinner and nothing more.
That there is possibly never a safe time to make a surprise visit during the final few days of a cake especially when there are no clear surfaces even for the kids to spread a bit of jam on a scone so they use a chair... The last thing they'll do is check their look in the mirror or leave enough time to wipe the flour and icing from their clothes before heading out to collect the kids from school
If there's piles of clothes on the floor downstairs, that's actually left over from the last binge of housework activity.
We sweep and mop our floors a lot but you will always step on something edible.
Answering a ringing phone when you're up to your eyes in cake means that they're possibly not the best communicators.... and messenger is the way to go. A visual reminder and paper-trail works best.
That we put in lots of time, attention and effort into every cake and nothing is more fulfilling than a happy customer because making a living from being creative and making your day is what it all comes down to in the end.
They might be hard to love. Being stressed, sleep deprived, working day and night so little time to spend with you but they love you really and will pay back your patience x
