My finished Doghouse cake!! What would u charge?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well, I finished the dog house cake...I wasnt very happy with the fondant doghouse, but thankfully this is for my little sister, so she'll be forgiving, plus I still think she'll be thrilled!! icon_biggrin.gif I learned my lesson!! I'm now ALWAYS going to use gumpaste with my fondant!! Thanks for all your help, fellow cc'ers!!

Just out of curiosity, what would you charge for a cake like this. I hand molded the dog...all the flowers are fondant. The dog face was stenciled on with Royal icing...Size is 3-8 layers, and 2 tall 6 layers. Chocolate with Raspberry filling..

The dog is suppose to look somewhat like the American Girl dog, Coconut..Which is what my sister is obsessed with right now icon_lol.gif

Thanks everyone!!

Your doghouse turned out adorable! Based on my pricing, I would probably charge about $125 for this cake. I think I'm on the low side compared to many others here, though. It really depends on your area. My pricing is more than most bakeries charge for party cakes and less than what they charge for wedding cakes.

This cake is just adorable!! I think I would charge around $100. I don't know if I would get it since I've never made this kind of a cake for anyone here, but I wouldn't quote any less!

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore, & who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Thanks everyone!! Now I know in advance if anyone asks about it, how much to charge!! I joked around with my parents that they owe me $100... icon_biggrin.gif You should've seen the look my lil sisters face when she first saw the cake...she stared and stared in disbelief! It was so great!!! She was so protective of it! If any kids got their fingers to close, she got after them! LOL...The reaction from little kids makes it all worth all the work!!!
