post #46 of 173
Hi all!! Just dowloaded version R, Alice how can i ever thank you enough! It's a wonder work! I applaud you and hope to be able to use it soon! Still studying and reading instrutions. Will in no doubt be a helpful asset! Just wantedc to ask though, i notice that you have the cake mix in the recipes, I the uk we don't use cake mixes rather from scratch so how do i put these in there? I have to say that i have never used an excell sheet before!

Thaks a lot!

Wow, you just saved me HOURS of work!! I was wondering how I could adjust the chart so that it's metric. I use grams and kilograms and am not sure where to change what.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

If you go to the beginning of the thread you will see it.
page 2 has the latest version.
Thank you so much Alice I'm also new. I downloaded it a few days ago...I'm studying it but it is also helping me to understand all that is involved & how we can justify our pricing. I so appreciate this.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I was so lost, and your spreadsheet has really helped. I am proficient in Excel, but would have never been able to put together what you've done. Thanks again!!

There is a cake recipes tab, you can put your recipes in there, they don't have to be cake mix icon_smile.gif

Someone asked about converting measurements... there are a lot of places where units are put in..... it might be a big task to convert to metric. I don't ever use metric so while I am sure that I COULD do it (math teacher... would be embarrassing if I couldn't) I would have to check every cell of the spreadsheet to see if any of my formulas are using non metric conversions...

The matrix took me over a year to get to the stage it is in right now where I worked on it for hours each day. I really enjoy using excel!

Wow this spreadsheet is awesome! Thank you so much. I am a full time accountant and, granted I haven't been decorating cakes that long, I wouldn't have been able to come up with this in such detail.
Great work!

Hi Alice,
I would like to join everyone else by saying "thank you" for the pricing matrix icon_biggrin.gif . I have a question /problem though. I'm not very good with excel.I needed to add a few rows on the basic price sheet for cake boards.It calculated all the way over until I got to the blue cell asking how much was used.How do I adjust the formula or format, so it will work all the way across to the yellow column where it adds the total with sales tax included?

Thanks In Advance

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

but now i have a question...

version R

when i am putting in my layers - i'm confussed - i use three 1.5x8" round pans and my ONE layer is composed of 3 layers of cake (one batch of scratch) - what do i enter under 8? one layer with 2 tortes or 3 layers with no tortes? also, if i ice in buttercream but do decorating in fondant, is there enough being charged if i just put "extra decorations yes" or do i need to add that in the "extras" tab?

i'm trying to price out my first "chargable" cake and still it's a little confussing...and i need to give her a price by the end of the weekend!

this is a FABULOUS little gem though!

I'm new to cake decorating and I found the pricing martix and it looks great... I have a few questions about pricing though. In the charges section..what is a normal price to charge for fondant, butter cream and fillings? any help would certainly be appreciated icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you for posting this!! I do have one question if anyone has time to answer it. Do you all include taxes on the products used for example cake mixes, etc.? Thanks in advance!
