Should I charge family and friends? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I typically charge for the costs of supplies and with my friends they usually end up giving me extra. I love doing it for my family and friends. I have not done any wedding cakes yet but I would charge for the materials I believe and my labor would be a gift to them, for family members.

Having a cake at a party is a great advertisement and for that opportunity at parties that I attend I usually have a lower price because they are where I hand out cards and generate more business.

My siblings and my husbands siblings would likely make simple mix cakes with no fancier decorations so I charge them the cost because they would not have gone out and purchased the store bought generic cakes anyway. This way they get a better cake for about the same money and I get more practice and just maybe somone outside the family will see the cake and decide to order from me.

This is the first time I have posted a reply but I have been observing and reading the great information on this web site. You all are so talented and I have learned a lot in just a couple weeks.
