Please do a search and find out how to figure out your pricing based on your costs and expenses- including overhead and time.

 

Really only you can figure this out as it's your time,  overhead, flour, sugar, etc etc. 

 

PS- use the white chocolate as a 'glue' to hold the strawberries on the side


Please explain to me why everyone has to be so rude? we all come here because we.....at some point had a passion for cake decorating....if you have lost that passion, don't be rude, just simply don't reply.not everyone has been in business for years, and the last time i checked this was a website to LEARN and GAIN KNOWLEDGE on the topic of cakes. Please be more considerate of others, its not classy to say this time and time again  :)

I didn't see anything rude. The information sought is easily available and good advice was given. You are a newbie. When you have seen the same question about pricing for the 100th or 500th or 2000th time, you will be tired of them too. There are over 26,000 threads on CC about cake pricing

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I didn't see anything rude in any of the replies, in fact the question is probably the rudest post on this thread. It's rude to just join a site and post a question expecting professionals who have done all of the hard work and research to spend their free time giving you all the answers, when all you had to do was click search and type in pricing. It's not as if there aren't 10,000 of them already.

OP - if you're trying to do this as a business you need to do your research and make a business plan, that includes figuring out your costs, what the local market price is and from there, what you should charge and whether you can even make money doing this. You may find that there's not enough customers in your area that are willing to pay a fair price for your work, or that there are but you need to market to those customers. There's more to being a successful baker than being good at it and enjoying it.
