Here are a few i have managed to upload, also i have no idea on what to charge for these sorts of cakes, any help would be most appreciated.
They look great. As you do more and get more experience they will get better & better and and yo can start putting a higher price on them.
I have been making cakes for over twenty years and started my business in 2008. In the early days of my business I charged much less than I do now because I did not have as much confidence to do more challenging cakes and I wanted to get the orders in.
As time has gone on I have increased my prices to be a true reflection of the work involved.
HTH and best of luck!
You're doing great! Your fondant is neat, Your stacking is level and you've a good eye for design; it's easy to add too much detail especially in a kids character cake- well done!
Keep at it! Keep trying different things; maybe go for a 3D car or teddy, google 'how to...' or post a question here; we'll help :)
Take care doing cakes for money, even if you're only paid cost, I gave 'practice' cakes away for months (under the stipulation that I make what I want to make- not what you want me to make for you- as it's my hobby and my practice- I want to learn something!).
Looking forward to seeing more of your cakes :)
your cakes are wonderful! Usually, we are less confident of ourselves as we know the flaws that we have done. We are always the worst critics of our own creations.
Keep it up and you'll do much better...just remember not to under price your work... cake making is easy, it's the design that goes into it that makes a cake more tedious and labor intensive...do not underestimate your labor work.
