i think this is the law
it seems pretty wide open--and the word advertise isn't mentioned so looks ok to do so in that it's not prohibited
good luck to her
typically buttercream tier cakes start at about $3 -$5 a serving and fondant cakes $4 to $6 a serving give or take--it depends on a lot of factors--
many many people ask this question so i have an extra bit of information for you--
what's really important is to price responsibly--there are people who make their living at this and when random newbies or even seasoned cakers price too low it borders on unethical and is very hurtful for the industry as a whole--and so...
no she can't advertise that she's a bakery unless she's a bakery and as i understand it kentucky is very strict about it but it's not impossible--just basically need a separate place on your property to do it with all the plumbing etc--but yes your friend needs to jump through all the hoops in order to advertise and in fact in order to operate at all--
i'd recommend that you contact your county officials--the greene county population is under 70,000--this bodes well for less rigid regulation--but it all depends on the peeps at the zoning and health departments--
best of the best to you--be fierce--you got this--a few phone calls or in person visits and you're there--i hope!
would love to know how it goes for you
i respect your opinion--i guess a more technically accurate name for it is a trompe l'oeil but all my cakes like that come under 2-d or 3-d sculpting-- i would charge as much as i could--it's far more expertise than a random 3 tier cake to me
you say potayto i say potahto
so if you found some motivation--drop me some bread crumbs and i will follow in your pathway --lol
your cakes are awesome--chocolate groom's no problem-o
i love the bride's cake the contrast of pearls to black ribbon with the twist--such a stunner design so well done
overall i think you're low for fondant--i'd go with those prices for buttercream
if you did an 8 x 6 x 4 at $4 a serving it would be about $160-- if you threw in the logos -- which you do encounter copyright issues with logos too--but logos should be about $10 - $15 at least unless your per serving price was high enough to absorb them--which it is not at this point --
$4 a serving for fondant is about as low as you can respectfully go i think give or...
mkreger, i have a different viewpoint on that with all due respect to you--but i have also worked places where the pricing might be that low--
sculptures cost many hundreds of dollars--should start at $8 - $9 a serving at the least--but if it is small in size the price holds at a certain minimum--like $250 - $350 depending on the success of the decorator and what the traffic will bear--some decorator's minimums are in the thousands so...a few pricing thoughts to throw...
