Ok guys, so Im new to making cakes and this cake is my very 1st wedding cake. I made it for a friend of mine who got married today. I met a couple at the reception who are getting married in 2 months and they really liked the cake so they asked me how much would I charge for it.
The thing is that this was a gift for the bride (my friend). And once again this is the 1st wedding cake I make.
The bottom is 14" with a fresh strawberry filling, the middle is a white cake with a cream cheese filling and the top is a 6" strawberry with fresh strawberry filling.
Please help guys!! I have attached a picture for your viewing.
There are many topics on pricing, if you do a search and find the one that is best for you.
There is even a pricing matric on here that you can download and use.
What a beautiful cake. As Butterwench stated there are lots of threads on this topic, but to save you some time.....1) figure out your food costs for making the cake, icing and decorations. 2) Add in dowel rods, boards, electricity...etc. 3)how much time is it going to take and how much is that worth to you? 4) Delivery--how far away is the site--gas is expensive right now. Also, some venues will only let licensed and insured bakers in their venue, so check that out too. Some will ask, some won't.
Good luck and happy baking!
I can't help you with a price, but I just wanted to say that your cake it's beutiful!
Thank you all for your comments and advice.
