I just bought CakeBoss yesterday and am trying to load all of my info into it. It is going to be a long process but I defintley see the advantages to doing this excersise. I need suggestions though on what dollar amount per hour I should have figured in. I need opinnions... and I know CC ers are full of them. icon_biggrin.gif

I think it depends on what you want to make. I try to at least make $10/hr. I'm sure I'm on the low end, but I'm not doing wedding cakes either.

You can figure out what you have been getting if you take your profit from an order and divide by the number of hours you worked on that order. Do it for a few orders and get yourself an average.

Since I'm just getting started I used Minimum wage as my base and rounded up to the nearest dollar.

Does Cake boss price the cake for you, after you enter in all the variables and costs of ingredients labor etc? How does this program work?

You are welcome to watch a Video Tour of CakeBoss for an overview of the program, or the How-To Videos, which are aimed at new users of the program, but go much further into depth than the video tour, particularly the video called "How to use the Pricing Calculator". thumbs_up.gif
