what would you charge for this cake? - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I am a hobby baker. I make cakes for my family and friends. I can in my state bake cakes and sell with out braking the law. I would not know how much to charge for this cake. I would need to know what size, are the ribbons and diamonds being furnished or do I need to buy them. I hate how everyone on this site jumps all over posters!!!!!! if you don't want to answer then jump over this one and go to the next!

Oh snap!

Didn't even occur to me that this could be a potential client looking for what to expect in terms of price.

It's never "just cake!"

 

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

Did you see my post?  Dem29, that's hard to say.


If you are looking for information on how to price your cakes, there are some wonderful web articles including the one on the Cake Boss Software site.

In general, you will need to have an accurate account of your expenses (ingredients, supplies, packaging, overhead, insurance, etc). You will also need to research your particular area to determine what your market is willin to pay.

I you are honestly curious what people, here, would charge, you'll need to provide more information. What size is the cake? We're the ribbons provided by client or made from fondant? Are those edible brooches or provide by client? What flavors & fillings?
 

 

I know it got a bit off there for a minute, but there were some of us who are/were trying to be helpful.
