I have a bride wondering how much it would be for 200 mini wedding cakes for her guests...how much do I tell her?? The cakes would be 2" and 3" each and 3" high. She wants them done in fondant with little dots as the decor. Please help!!!
I have only done a few miniature cake, nothing on a grand scale like this but I wouldn't charge anything less than 8-10dollars, expecially with that fondant. I don't know if this is out of line or not, but I know they are a lot of work.
Can you do poured fondant? It would be easier than trying to smooth fondant on those small cakes.
Well, if you started at $2.00 per slice, then it would be $400, and if you went with the $3.00 that most start charging for fondant, it would be $600. I would start there....I've never made that many little cakes, but it will be a lot more work than just doing 3 cakes. Also, it could be a lot more baking time if any of them don't come out right.
Good luck and let us know what you decide!
I have made one of those little cakes but with buttercream rather than fondant and they are tricky, picky and time consuming. I would not charge less than 10 dollars a peice. Miserable time.
WAY more expensive per servign than a regular cake would be. don't back down on this . . .the labor is much more intensive (but oi'm sure she's thinking it is easier)
