I am just wondering,
I am making cakes from home, living in Southwest of UK, and I usually got 1 order per month. I charged around £50/cake lately, and they were all big cakes, feeding about the same amount of people (50), so £1/portion.
I work so hard and it took me about a week to get the designs ready for the customers.
I am very polite and hardworking person.
I just wonder, seeing all these cakes here... and reading some of the forum posts... do I live at the wrong place? I wish I could make more money by this, and I think I am good at it (check out my cakes please!), plus I LOVE baking and making cakes, so any advice would be appreciated.
I have posters around my village, which is 30min drive from any town, and for my marketing purposes, I use mainly internet. I had a baby recently and used this break to raise my pricelist, too, and I suspect that might be the reason why there's no orders coming. People here must think it's too much to pay £70 for a cake? But what I say is my cakes are more than just a cake, it's a work of a sugar artist, what do you think?
Any comments appreciated!
