After doing the cake I posted about yesterday I had a second order to take care of. This was the order form that was left for me.
I wasn't sure if that was Happy 30th birthday Dobie or Oobie. I also didn't know if the writing was supposed to be either green or blue or did they mean they wanted green and blue, or did it mean they wanted a color that was greenish blue. I tried to call but with only the last name Anderson who do I ask for. It ended up I couldn't get through to talk to anyone any way.
I did what I thought the order meant and this was the very plain cake that they got.
I wasn't there when they picked it up so I have no idea if it was right or not.
It drives me nuts when they take orders like that though. 9 times out of 10 I can't get in touch with the person who ordered the cake to ask them questions. I try to stress that they have to be very explicit when taking an order so that I know what it means. I've also tried to tell them that I need a first name on the order so I know who to ask for if I have to call. I always feel like and idiot when I have to call and say I don't know who I want to talk to because I only have a last name. It would be so much easier if people would call during the day when I'm there but most of the orders come in at night when they are talking to someone who knows nothing about the bakery.
