Price the Cake

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

For our first cake, let's do one of my favorites.

 

http://www.verydeliciousdesserts.com/#!Lace-Inspired-/zoom/c1w0q/imageien

 

This is a 6" round white with white choc mousse & fresh blueberries, 8" sq. white with white chocolate mousse & fresh strawberries, 14" round..blueberries, & 16" sq. fresh strawberries.

 

The lace is hand piped detail of the bride's gown.  The 14" round is covered with edible pearls.

 

What would you charge?

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Cake alone retail $6.00 per person= $1380.

Plus: tax and delivery (I'd give free deliver with this order)

Wow! I want $6. Hopefully someday!

Side note: I charged $100 delivery/set up in this case. The venue is gorgeous, but tricky with 2 sets of stairs.

Before you get excited over my price, keep this in mind: I've been a wholesale business. (I'm just building my website to go retail). So right now I get $3.00 p.p. from my vendors for this type of decoration.

When you guys post what you would charge, could you also post where you are located please?  I'm curious about the pricing for different regions...

My $963 quote was based out of Nebraska.

I have 248 servings for $930. I am in Northern Ky, in the greater Cincinnati area. It would be $868 without the fresh fruit.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.
