How many servings? Are you making the sportsball pan and an 8" or 9" pan for the hoop?
It would be nice to get the prices "the perfect cake" is charging! I'd charge $50 anyway...
I didn't see where "the perfect cake" listed their prices.
I will probably use a 9" round for the hoop and I'm not sure how many the ball pan will serve.
I've always been nervous about charging certain prices. Sometimes I think it will scare away my customers.
Here's their pricing page:
But they are only estimates, it looks like the cheapest sculptered cake you can get is $110 and it only serves 15-20 people. (ouch in my pocketbook
WOW! What a price list! Since I'm just starting to get more clients I don't think I will charge $110 for that cake. I think the minimum will be $50. I'll put together a list of all ingredients, colors, and time then I'll determine the final cost.
agentcakebaker, i did a basketball cake and charged $60.00 for it. it all depends on what size you're using. mine was a half sheet and the ball cake pan.
The goal will be a 9" round with a basketball on top (ball pan).
I'd go in the $50 area. You can always charge more if they go for "premium" cake or filling.
One more question concerning the 3 D basketball cake and hoop. How would I transport a cake like this?
Is there a box larger enough to cover the entire cake? Also, which is better to use plastic or wood dowel rods?
I also want to make a basketball theme cake for my boyfrien's little sister this june. Iwas thinking of doing the round mold basketball and put it on a sheet cake as if the basketball had crashed into it. Just an idea...
Plastic or wood would work just fine. I would place a cake board btw the ball and the basket and dowel as in a tiered cake. I know they make boxes to fit the doll cakes. One of them would probably work.
I will check my local cake supply store today.
Great! Good luck! I definitely want to see pictures!
Will do! I'll post as soon as I'm done.
Great! Can't wait!
