I think we will be! We've been business acquaintances and then after that, friends, since she opened her home business in 2009. Just getting to know one another, we have many similarities in our businesses but at the same time, different strengths....we really think its gonna work out great. icon_smile.gif

Best of luck! x

Really I think some people are just clueless as to how much a carved or other custom cake costs .

I've read many times the first two questions should be what is your budget and how many people do you want to feed . This clears up a lot of questions right off the bat . Then you can listen to what the client has in mind , This cuts to the chase and saves more back and forth .

If I had a business and say a facebook page I would clearly state that carved cakes start at $XXX.
Yes I know some people do and people still ask for a $300 cake for $50.

Good luck to OP and remember as the pros here have said you need to market to those who are willing to pay your prices . .

Yep...the nice thing is that we each have a current business that already does that. We already have a $200 minimum and we are maxing out our schedules with those orders. We already have pretty much our market and our target clients coming.... with the merge, we just have room to expand and accept some of those orders we've been turning away due to lack of space and time and commercial ovens, etc. Plus with a storefront we can have a higher end consult room and even further target the higher end clients. Thanks!

I think Cakery2012 didn't mean to post on this thread. That was for another thread on pricing.

Congratulations! It has been great to see the evolution of your business from home to storefront.

And that Circus cake is absolutely INSANE!
