Biggest fbct ever! - Page 2

Wonderful job. I suggest you set some prices on your cakes based on size to start. I know there are sites that will tell you to how to do pricing by the serving and then price per everything they want (ie borders, flowers etc) but I find it easier to be able to tell someone what I charge and then decide if I can do the cake they want.

I charge $40.00 for 12"X18" large, $30.00 for Medium cakes 10" to 12", and $20 for small cakes. This is the only hobby I have ever had that is self supporting. Charge enough to get you some larger pans, the right equipment make a big differance.

Thanks for all the advice. I will definately come up with a price when I do a cake this large again. It really was alot of work. I dont think I will ever charge family but they keep asking me if I could make a cake for so and so and its putting me in an akward position. How do you guys deal with family members "refering" you to people...for free? icon_redface.gif
Especially such big projects.
