OK guys this is crazy, someone that was at the wedding saturday told her sister how great our cakes were. She loved the ugly wedding cake. lol anyways her sister is getting married in 2 weeks and called and asked if we would make it. OMG!!!! Of course we said yes. Now i dont have a clue as to what to charge her. Its for 40 people but she wants a grooms cake too. I will need some help on thr grooms cake but will post that in the ideas section. What i really need is help with our pricing. i am sooo excited this is the first paid cake i will be doing.!!!!!!!!!

veejaytx Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 1:53am

Wow, that is exciting news, Susan! Obviously the cake you thought was ugly was beautiful to others! Good luck, I know it will be great! Janice

susanmm23 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 1:56am

thanks janice. i dont know you saw the cake didnt you???? its pretty bad lol. im really excited.

do you guys know if star gazer lilies are safe to put on a cake????

susanmm23 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 2:27am

ok i have looked and looked i found out stargazer lilies are poisionous for animals cats and puppies. Does this then mean they are bad for people???? no where in any of the article did it says its a nono for people.

tcturtleshell Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 2:28am

Hey Susan, I'm so happy for you!! That's great news!! Remember the humidity made the cake go bad... you did the best you could!! This next one will be so much better!! You'll see to that!!

MrsMissey...

Dawn sent me the matrix before but when my computer crashed I lost it. Could you send it to me again? Thanks! tcturtleshell@yahoo.com

sls0812 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 2:49am

I do believe stargazer lillies are toxic. I think I read it on this site, actually. Please email me the price matrix! Thanks

Susan ~ Have you tried saving the document to your computer before you download/open it? My computer never lets me open a document from an e-mail without actually saving it to the computer first. Just an idea! icon_rolleyes.gif ~ Erin

ccbakes Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 3:01am

Hey Ya'll,
I was wondering if you all have Microsoft word or Excel? this is usually the program that the matrix works with.

Ok everyone it has been sent! There is a thread titled "Price Matrix"...if anyone else is interested please post under that thread! This thread is to discuss Susan's wedding cake order! thumbs_up.gif

susanmm23 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 4:44pm

OK guys here is a link to the cake she wants. with a few changes she only wants the top 3 tiers and only wants the stargazer lilies. She also doesnt want all the extra designs on the side just plain white with a basic border. we are also doing a grooms cake for her but it wont be very big. I wrote down all the supplies i would need and figured it would be about 50 including the flowers. SO i thought 150 would be fair to charge. What do you think.

Congrats on your first cake order Susan! I can't offer advice, but I think you'll do an awesome job! It's very pretty.

susanmm23 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:04pm

thanks im really excited!!!!!

fytar Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:24pm

wewww, MrsMissey, I'm glad you said that when you did! I was just about to ask for it myself!!! I'll follow instructions and go to the forum!

Susan, congrats on the order! I can't wait to see pics when you finish this project. I love the design they have chosen.

thecakemaker Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:35pm

Congratulations on your order! I got a call today too from my 50th wedding anniversery cake inquiring about a wedding cake. Doesn't it make you feel good to know that someone liked your cake enough to want you to make theirs?! Congratulations again!

Debbie

susanmm23 Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:43pm

yeah it feels great. although i am surprise since the cake she saw was the worst cake i have ever done. So i guess even my worst is horribly bad to some. lol your cakes are so beautiful its no wonder you got a call.

thecakemaker Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:47pm

Thank you! I'm still learning and still have a way to go! Your cakes are beautiful. Can't wait to see the wedding cake!

Debbie

Wandootie Posted 7 Jul 2005 , 5:54pm

Mrs. Missy-

Please email me the price matrix.

Thanks!

I would charge her more than that.... considering the amount of time and effort you'll be putting into those flowers (which are beautiful, by the way), I would charge her probably no less than 200 or 250.
