Excellent advice, thank you. Cross marketing makes complete sense to me.
It seems as though they wanted "wholesale" cookies. Upon clarification they wanted me to make custom, incredibly detailed cookies for them and in return they would give me all of their cookie work. The catch? They were not going to credit my work AT ALL. They were going to pass it off as their own on their sweet tables. Plus they wanted "wholesale" prices! Do they think it takes me less time to make more cookies?
I am sure you have all had the pleasures of dealing with similar situations but honesly I am pretty shocked.
Clearly it's a no go. I did, however, take it as a huge compliment. They are a big party/event planner, I think one was a cake designer/baker, and for them to be interested in taking credit for my work, well I'd have to be a fool not to be flattered.
