I do love them! I had a lady contact me a out a mascot cake, and I don't want to do it, so I quoted high, and she says,"that's fabulous! When can I give you a payment? do you take a check? " heck, I'll be happy to do it for the price I quoted icon_biggrin.gif
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.

LOL that happened to me, I said them: the larger the more expensive, a bigger cake requires more work and structure... they never came back.

I know this is an older thread, but I just had to pipe in....

 

I've always had starting prices and a minimum on my website, but I still get the occasional budget shopper. Not sure if they don't read what I have posted on my site, or what. WIth the budget shopping, usually when I give them a quote (assuming they've seen my website info), they say something to the effect of "I didn't think it would be that expensive!" And then they try to negotiate!!  The way I see it, you don't negotiate your grocery bill at the check out, so why would my CUSTOM cake be any different?

 

Just updated my website to include "PRICES ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE" as well as a tab on "Why Custom Cakes are so Expensive". Hopefully that will weed 'em out!
