Rice Krispie Wedding Cake $$$

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been asked to make a 3 tiered wedding cake out of rice krispies. It will be a "naked cake" with a ribbon around each tier and decorated with fresh gerber daisies.
What would you suggest charging as I haven't a clue? Thanks

The same as you would charge for any other three tiered wedding cake.

"Naked" as in no covering? No buttercream or fondant? No hours of extra work to hide the "cake"?

Now that is original! I like it!

If I was just forming crispy treats in cake pans, stacking them, then adding a little ribbon, I would not be able to bring myself to charge even a fraction of what I would charge for a full wedding cake. I'd calculate cost of ingredients plus my time and packaging. Personally I think I could bang that project out in less then 2 hours so that's how I'd price that.

Can't help you with price ...but be careful how soon you make them because I know they can get very hard if left out.

FromScratch thats exactly what I was thinking! MimiFix yep naked as a Jay Bird icon_lol.gif I really couldn't bring myself to charge the same price as a baked, torted, iced and covered in fondant kind of cake...I personally would feel like I was ripping them off icon_rolleyes.gif

Can't help with pricing, but wanted to reply to Renee. There was a picture of a Kellogg Rice Krispies design for a wedding cake on the official site for Kellogg Rice Krispies. If you go to their site and search for "wedding cake" it should bring it up.

I just googled it and some of the cakes are interesting looking. Not bad at all for a rice krispie cake.

I also agree about not charging the regular cake price.

If they don't have to worry about peanut allergies, adding peanut butter to rice krispy treats it is so yummy! Add one cup of PB per normal size batch of RKT.

If you are ever making these for home consumption, and you like chocolate, take some Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels and place them on top of the treats as soon as you've pressed them into your pan. The left over heat will melt the morsels, then you can spread out the chocolate.

Don't bite off more than you can chew.  One day you may not be able to swallow.

I too agree that there is no way I could charge full price for this. Most of the cost is the time, and I could knock that out in less than 5 hours. If there are elaborate decorations that are time consuming, then I bit more than my gut reaction of about a buck a serving icon_smile.gif
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

How did it turn out? I am going to try to make a 3 tiered square wedding cake for my daughter. I did not take into consideration that the cake pans are 2' tall, and I need 4" tiers. I didn't want to stack them because then you would see a seam. Any suggestions on what to use to get the 4" depth and still keep the sides and tops square?
