I'm not sure I understand,.. and it's late so forgive me as I reply...
I did make the cakes and I did them for the $200. No it probably wasn't enough but in calling around I found our low was $1.35 and the high around $1.85 here in STL. My Wilton instructor charged $1.25 so I thought I was doing good at $1 to start since I'd never made one,.. other than my course III final and I thought since it was a 'friend' though I'm closer with the MIL to be than the bride herself, I was doing an honorable discount. My thread started when I took offense to the bride saying that the $1 pp was to much when I already thought I was giving a great deal. My next two brides don't care... the one for June said... 'Whatever you charge will be fine. Just let me know the bill!' And she wants two cakes! One for their OOT wedding in Florida for 20-30 people and one for their reception when they return. I will be charging more hereafter do not fear. I feel like I have 'the experience needed' for the job now. I know I could have been more 'professional' on my responses to them but here I am new at this game and used to talking and dealing with 4 kids 24/7.
Enough said... just wish she wouldn't have had those dang dolls on the top! (Yuck!)
Thanks all for the great feedback. You always make me feel special and that's one thing I love about CC and why I can't get off my computer at night and go to bed after all is done for the day! This website is very addictive!
