How much would you guys charge for a 3D scorpion cake for 50 people?
I think I'm undercharging it. Bummer!
My 3D sculpts start at $4.50 per serving but that is for a very simple design. It easily shoots up to $7.50+ per serving. All depends on the design and structure needed.
Well...what exactly is it going to look like? Like a funny caricature of a scorpion, or a real anatomically correct scorpion? Stinger raised in the air, or laying flat? Same basic pricing still applies as mentioned above, but when realism is a factor, and scale and proportion are crucial, take extra care to account for your time and skill.
I charge $5.00 per serving for 3D cakes. They take more time and depending on the design, more cake too (so really they could get more servings out of it). although it really depends on the design and how you plan on making it. I'm doing a tire cake for 38 servings for $190.00, although if it was a tough design i have in my contract that i can charge more depending on how detailed the design is. I quote it first and let them decided if they still want it, sometimes people think its too much, but they cant buy a custom 3D cake at walmart.
My 3-D cakes start at $200 for about 20-25 servings. dpeending on what kind of detailing and internal structure it's going to need, the price will go up from there, like AZ said. For even a "basic" 3-D cake I end up spending as much, if not more, time on it as I do a wedding cake, so there's no reason to charge less.
