I have a client who needs a sage green fondant wedding cake with white daises and designs. I gave her these three options...tell me how much you would charge for each option..because I am wanting to make sure I am ok in the price range...
6, 8, 10 -round tiered fondant covered cake with each tier a different flavor. White fondant daises and designs on each tier. with one 11 x 15 double layer sheet cake for $319
4, 6, 8 -round tiered fondant covered cake with each tier a different flavor. White fondant daises and designs on each tier. with two 9 x 13 double layer sheet cakes for $240.
14, 11, 8, 5 -round tiered fondant covered cake with each tier a different flavor. White fondant daises and designs on each tier. $400.
It's going to vary for everyone.. but let's take a look at your pricing..
6-8-10 is 60 servings (by my chart which is a bit less than wilton's)
Your 11x15 double layer sheet will serve 75
That's 135 servings.. for 319 is $2.36 per serving
4-6-8 is 35 servings.. and the 9x13 is 50
that's 85 servings.. for 240$ is $2.82 per serving
5-8-11-14 is about 130 servings
for $400 is $3.07 per serving..
You have a rather big per serving discrepancy in your pricing. What servings chart are you using.. that could account for some of it, but you still have a difference. I assume that your sheets will match the cake and have the fondant as well too.
I would charge $5/serving for fondant covered cakes. But my market is different than yours. I wouldn't go under $3/serving for fondant though.
do you have a base price por person?
for how many serving do you need to make the cake
Your prices are about on par with mine. It depends alot on the market in your area though.
As far as what jkalman said, I think she is right, but I did interpret the original post as meaning the sheet cakes would not be fondant covered, so that would explain the price discrepancy. If they are fondant covered, then the pricing doesn't make sense.
i was going off of the wilton chart I believe. the sheet cakes would NOT be covered in fondant...which would make the overall price cheaper. They would be a double layer with filling in the middle though. i charge 2.50 per slice for buttercream and 3.50 per slice for fondant
Well then I think you are more than okay. Your prices are a little low, but at least they are consistent with your serving chart.
