If You Asked Me

Thank You so much Nura! many cakes I make in a day, I would say not many.
If you asked me
...why I could not make more, I would show you my only two hands.
If you asked me
...why flour, sugar, eggs, milk and chocolate fetch so much, I would show you my heart,
If you asked me
...why deliveries are costly, I would give you the equation : Tolls + petrol + effort + time away from my oven x 2 (to and fro)
= Delivery

If you asked me
...why the cake is imperfect, I would say I am too.
if I asked you much should anyone pay for a cake which took the time from sunrise to midnight,
what would you say? Try divide the price with the hours taken.
It's laborious...have mercy.


Salam Maal Hijrah 1430. May Allah bless us with abundance of iman, good health and continuous prosperity in the new year. Amin

Thank you so much Hazlin!

Art is the one thing one should never negotiate price on. Your work, my friend, is neither foods nor goods. It's art from the heart. Those who think of your work in terms of price should get cakes and cookies from wholesale bakeries.

I rest my case (like I even HAD a case in the first place).
