I have only been cake decorating as a hobby since the start of the year, mainly just for kids birthdays. Just friends and family and the odd friend of a friend which I do charge for as they are strangers. Somebody had a cake at daycare today which was really good, fondant covered with a fondant digger on the top "digging" a hole in the cake. Looked really cute and apparently the cafe where they purchased it only charged $45. I would probably charge $70 and I am only learning and am thinking that I should just throw in the towel when there are more experienced people putting out wonderful stuff at such cheap prices. Hardly seems worth it by the time you factor in ingredients and labour! I guess I just need to keep learning and practicing and hopefully I will get quicker... Just a vent - but does anybody else ever just feel like your a lost cause LOL!!!!
