I got asked for a price quote on a cake with sugared grapes. How would you price it? Would you add an extra cost for the extra time to sugar the grapes or would you just include it in your base price?
how would you sugar those grapes? i have heard of this, but never figured out exactly how to do it.
I would figure my extra cost and add it into the base price. The client would just think it's the price of the cake, rather than an extra fee. Sometimes people like the sound of a price all together rather than this is the cake cost, and this is the sugared grape cost. I hope that made sense to you! LOL!
No I will give them a total cost of the cake but am not sure how much to add on to my base price.
making them is actually minimal work, figure out how much the grapes are going to cost, add the sugar and a tsp of meringue powder and add that to the cost of your cake.
I've made them to add to the sides of a 2 tiered cakes.
Then I ate the other batch. lol
I would figure out the cost of your grapes and time to make them and add that into the cost of your cake. Most people just want to know what to write the check for and not the break down.
