Pricing on cake servings?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was just curious to how much you charge per serving on the cakes your selling and your location?

 

I'm slightly new to selling cakes (I've only sold a few and still don't have a set price)

I've been charging about $2.75/serving for fondant and $2.00/serving for buttercream.

But I'm not profiting a whole lot after buying ingredients and whatnot.

So I'm just wondering what others are charging?

Thanks! :)

With pricing by serving, are you using a particular cake serving chart? I mean, if someone wants a small cake (6")
How many servings are you using for that size. I was thing on for instance, 1/2 sheet buttercream $50 period unless its fancy or something. What I'm saying is it seems easier to price per cake.

Before you sell your cakes, work on your pricing first. Read on old threads from the Cake Decorating Business, you'll learn a lot.

It's never "just cake!"

 

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