I am making five dozen cupcakes for a 13 year old's bday party. The mom would like a cake stand. I'm guessing I would have to make one about four tiers for that many cupcakes. Any idea on what I should charge?
Just like any other product, you should charge for materials plus labor plus markup when creating a cake stand. If we buy the cake stand and rent it out, we charge the full replacement cost of the stand as a refundable deposit plus a third of the cost as a rental fee.
