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?

 I would not go to that crazy womans house. Sounds like a serial killer trap.

LOL  I have a severe nut allergy too.

That's why I bake my own cakes OR go to a nut free bakery.

Crazy lady.

She is insane! You get a cake at Walmart for $30 maybe but not for that many people!

Obviously someone who has never opened a cookbook.

Just like someone who asks about having a twin size quilt custom-made for about $50.
