I need to price a fondant shoe box cake, it has 3 tiers and will be made from 10in, 8in, 6in sponge cake with jam and butter cream filling, 2 large and 2 small rose sprays with no shoes which sort of defeats the cake design but hey I just make em!!. I took the picture to my local cake shop and she priced it at Â£450- Â£500 which I think is very expensive.
I am on some Brit boards and here is some advice I have seen on the sites. You know those Number One cakes? They can go for as much as Â£65. Then there was a four tier wedding cake, and the baker was given a price to charge Â£450 with silk flowers and Â£500 with sugar flowers. As you know sugar flowers take time to make. And if you are going to deliver and set it up, between Â£50 -Â£100. Bride and groom models go for as much as Â£50 so individual models were Â£25. Then another person was told when pricing she would add all the ingredients for that particular size cake times it by 3 add the board box and ribbon then add the set prices for flowers which were starting at Â£35 for a small spray with maybe 2 roses and foliage. But all were given the advice that the price is very much up to the individual/how much your area (customer) will pay.
Thanks for the info thats great. Could you tell me what the UK sites are that you go to.
Anyone else got any idea?
