What would you charge for a decorated single layer 11x15x2 sheet cake?
Is $40 too much?
Pricing is so varried depending on where you live. That is a bit high as far as I'm concerned. I'd say more like $30. It also will depend on how it's decorated....very intricate (sp?) or simply elegant? B'cream or fondant? Lots of gp flowers or a few piped right on the cake b'c? Baked from scratch w/lots of butter etc or a box mix w/nothing extra added? A special flavor or plain yellow, white or choco? so much to include. If you can get $40 go for it
I've just upped mine from $35.00 to $47.50 (aprox $1.45 slice)
So far no complaints!
I charge $40 for mine.
I charge $25 for mine, people would not pay $40 in my area for that. But it also depends how much decorating you are doing to it. I charge $40 for a full sheet cake.
I get 1.50 per serving=52.50 for mine.
The cake i am asking $40 for is a single layer box mix 11x15x2. Decorated with buttercream. With top and bottom boarders, 6-7 roses, and writing.
I hate to go too much less just because of the labor.
I just increased my price to $35 from $30.
Hi! I'm new here so please excuse the question. When you say "single layer" does that mean no filling, just one layer of cake and then decorated? Thanks!
yes. single layer means no filling. At least to me it does. I could be wrong since I am new to this as well.
I charge 40.00 for mine and its my most popular size.
I charge $40, and it's a single layer.
boothgirlz.... do not go any lower..... i get $45.00 for exactly what you say you are putting on your cake...... whether i bake it from scratch..... or use a cake mix extender with extra butter ..... whipping cream. etc... if it was fondant covered..... with gumpaste flowers ...etc.... it would be at least $ 55-60 dollars , sometimes , i have to make this size using buttercream and hard to do decorations on it for children and teens. so i would charge more than $45.00 for that too ... so your price is great i am from north carolina.... i have learned over these 12 years...... if we don,t get that price .... someone else does.....
I wont go under 45$ for the basic that size ! If its more decor then what you said then I charge more!
I would charge 30-40. I've got one next week with a filling that's $40. Sounds similar to what you're doing.
i'm doing an 11x15 1-layer torted now for delivery tomorrow. i charge $2.00 a serving, $10.00 for the fresh raspberry filling and another $10.00 for the fondant work on the buttercream. it came to about $84 with tax.
I charge $45 for my 11x15 (that's what my price list says anyway). $35 for my 9x13. To me, someone can go to a local grocery store and get a cake(most of the time not completely to their satisfaction)pretty cheap, or get one from me and spend just a little more. They will know I took my time and did the best I could to give them exactly what they wanted and to where they will absolutely love it. 99% of the time they tell me they love it before they leave with it. In my opinion, that is worth paying a little extra for and it makes me feel good that they were so happy with what they got.
Soooo...all that rambling to say, you charge what you think you're worth. Your time, skill, work. I live in south Mississippi and I've not yet had a complaint about my prices. I don't think you should have a problem at all charging $40.
I agree with Icer101 I charge $50.00 for that size. I have had no complaints regarding price. It also depends on gumpaste, flowers and fondant. Always try to add up all your ingredients you have in the cake and make sure you are not under cutting yourself. I even have my flavorings costed out so everything gets calculated.
I charge $40 wtih filling and 48 for a 3 Leches cake with fresh fruit filling
Mine is $61.25 which is $1.75 a serving.
