A customer sent me this picture of a castle cake from Earlene's web site.
She charges 1000.00 for it. I REALLY want to do this one, I already have her detailed instructions even. I'm thinking $800.00. Am I crazy?

I know someone out there has done this cake before! I need some suggestions. Everyone I know is away at convention. icon_sad.gif

Holy Cow! icon_eek.gif Thats some cake!! I really don't know anything about pricing, but that is a TON of work and time and fondant!! $800 sounds reasonable to me.

i dont think that you are crazy... if the lady sent you the picture she must know what earlene would charge her.

i think it is gorgeous.. looks real...

it's definetely $800 dollars worthy, for me i wouldn't have enough overhead to charge that much!

I'd say anywhere in the $800 range would be good.
