I honestly don't think that 75-80% of the people behind the pricing questions have a clue how much money and time they spend doing a cake. I think they get asked to do a cake, and say okay with out knowing. That goes along with those that made a cake then come here asking how much to charge for the already made cake.
We have seen it on here time and time again when someone says I charged $50 for this cake and after they are asked and they have to figure it up they realise they spent $40 on making the cake.
Yes there are some people out there that do know how much they are putting into cakes, those are usually the ones that ask the more detailed questions and give people more information to work off of.
Those that say "I'm making a 5 tiered cake to feed 40 people, with dots and strips, how much do I charge," haven't thought many things through yet. A 5 tired cake and 40 servings in this care are often two different things.
I know there will always be pricing questions. Ive come on here before with them. But I understand where others are coming from as well. I also think that many people on here do answer the questions, giving them food for thought. It is just that I can think of 4 or 5 of them off the top of my head right now that have popped up in the last few days, all with the same vague theme, and I am sure that is what has prompted the worry from others.
