Hi I am new to this site which I love already!
I only bake for myself and family and friends and dont charge and give them as presents and was asked to make a 12 inch square highly decorated fruit cake for a family members business associate who business was celebrating 60 years.
The cost of ingredients and cake board etc from a supermarket was £40+ so I said I would do it for £60 and they were horrified at the cost.!! I thought this was cheap considering the work that I would have to put into it. They went elsewhere which was not a problem as Im not a business .
What are your thoughts as to costing.?
PS i am thinking of starting a business this year as I make cakes all the time and give them away and lots of friends think I should do this as a job which I would love to
