I'm just starting out at home. I'm still not good at figuring out the best way to price my cakes at.
I called a few bakeries to see what they charge and some of them charge by the cake pan size & others charge by slice per person. I asked the bakery what cake size do I need for 25 people & I'd like a chocolate cake with fondant covered.
She suggested a 10' round for 19 servings @ 2x2 servings for $80 or for $85 a 10' square 25 servings. Some bakeries simply said it's $4-$5 a person.
I hardly ever do buttercream covered cakes, all my cakes are covered in fondant. That's what everyone likes.
My question is what's the best way to price cakes by pan size or by person? What do you charge for fondant covered cakes? cake pan or per person?
Thanks in advance,
