Where do you come up with your per serving prices? I am new to this and I was basically going to charge for the cake as a whole not per slice. I made 2 pound cakes tonight and I was thinking if i sold them i would sell them between 8 and 10 dollars. Just wondering.
Some cakes you are better off charging for as a whole (the smaller cakes in particular), price dependant on ingredients and time it took you to do the cake. For larger cakes (40+ servings), then a per serving charge will work OK (and give you a bigger profit for the big cakes!). I have a minimum charge for all cakes ($60), and then I work from there. My party cake servings start at $2.75 per serving, wedding cakes start at $4.50. I charge extra for fondant, modelling and 3D work. Hope that helps!
Ack! Fixed now...sorry, had a pregnant brain moment.
Thanks you guys. you all are great here!
