My friend is a cake decorator and saw this on Craigslist. I am not sure what planet this woman lives on.

 "BAKE AND DECORATE MY DAUGHTERS BIRTHDAY CAKE!
My daughter is turning 7yrs old and I need an amazing cake baker/decorator to come to my apt Friday feb8 and bake her birthday cake. My daughter has SEVERE nut allergies and I need the baking done in my kitchen to ensure that there is no possible nut contamination.. i will buy the ingredients and pay you to bake and decorate it. Total time should be about 2hours. You must be an expert. Otherwise I would do it myself. Either went to cooking school/pastry chef. Please tell me how much for this service. Be reasonable or I will not hire you.Cake should be for 30-35 people. You must be very clean with your hair up and handwashing essential."

My friend was looking on craigslist for cake pans and stuff and came across this. She found out that the woman wants all of this for $30!! She wants someone to travel to her home, be a professional pastry chef, make a cake for 35 people, in less than two hours, for $30. What planet does she live on?

Wow, that lady has no idea how much a cake cost. I went to culinary/pastry school and I can tell you I would charge a lot more then that!

Quoting CjEmmemommy:

Wow she has lost her mind! She could also come off more pleasant! I would want to help her as I am sure with a nut allergy that bad she is likely stressed but even n print you can tell you would be a pain!

 Oh and 30 lol that is insane,. How do you know she only wants to pay 30?

I think she answered the ad, just to see what she thought was reasonable.

That is what one might call unrealistic expectations.

LOL! It isn't such a huge demand if the money was there. $30.00? LOL!
