cake pics with prices - Page 39

post #571 of 664

Thank you zahnby! Reading this thread has made me kick myself in the butt when it comes to pricing. I always second guess myself when I give someone a quote. After reading this thread I actually sit down with my mom the other day and we went over my prices and made a new pricing structure and I called some bakeries around me to get a feeling of what they charge.... now I just have to stick to my pricing structure and not second guess myself.

This is a strawberries and cream cake. Yellow sponge cake layered with fresh whipped cream and strawberries, frosted with vanilla American buttercream.

It's an 8 inch cake with five thin layers of cake (2.5 torted layers). I charged $35.

Please use the search feature and review previous pricing threads. The purpose of this thread is for you to tell others how much you sold your product for. No one can tell you what to charge for your cake. There are too many variables. It is a very cool cake though.

What a beautifully elegant design! I love how simplistic but designer it looks.

That is a gorgeous cake. I can smell the salt air, but feel like I should be wearing a scuba mask---it looks so close up/realistic! Yes, truly elegant.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

I think that's a reasonable price Smitty.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

There is a new show actually, Fabulous Cakes, which does quote the prices, and I love it!

If no one says it's not allowed by tomorrow, I'll start thumbs_up.gif

I agree! I have previously visited websites of some of those tv show bakers to price what I could and I found it hard to breath when I seen what few prices they did have posted. I have been told by other that I should charge a minimum of 10-15 per batch of cake. Also when I have something new I have never done before I start by calling around to local bakeries to see what they charge before I make a decision on what to charge for mine.

I hope you also figure out your ingredient cost so you know how much each product costs you. If you need help, use the search box and type in "how to price cakes" or "jason_kraft pricing cakes" and learn how to do the math.
