Do you think I charged fair?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I am just starting to get my pricing together and with what is being charged in my area, I have decided on $2.50 for BC, $3.50 for fondant, $1.00 extra per slice for fondant/gumpaste accents on the whole cake.

Can you please look at the layered petal cake in my gallery (pink, white, black) and tell me if you think $42 is fair for the 6-inch. Wilton says it serves 12. She was glad to pay the money, but some people I've been talking to keep saying, "a 6-inch cake is $42?"

Thank you!!

42 seems very fair. they are not just buying a cake they are buying art. Its a wow factor for events, the fact that its edible too makes it a plus. I'd say stick to ya guns don't lower the price. Personally Id rather sell 1 cake a week and charge more than work my butt off selling cakes cheap and still only making the same amount.

Those that are saying that it is too much have no idea what goes into making that kind of a cake. They are just going by what they see at Walmart, Costco, etc. You cannot compare the two. You get what you pay for.

I think $42 is fair. And yep, those people who think that it's too much are probably comparing your price to store bought cakes, they don't know what they're talking about.
