We love Calvin and Hobbes, but we can't recreate those sweet characters in 3-D unless we had lots of time and the customer had lots of money to spend. We have learned over the years to do our level best not to say "no" to a design. You have to offer options that fit your skill set and their budget. I don't feel it's right to agree to make a cake that a baker doesn't know IF they can do it. Almost every cake is unique in my situation, but most aren't made with unfamiliar techniques. When you are asking a baker to create something you have not seen in their portfolio, offer to pay for a small cake in the same technique before you sign the contract for the larger cake. Please trust me, it will be money well spent, a lot like cake insurance.
