I had a request today from a customer wanting a grooms cake for her wedding in 2010. Both her and her fiance are in the army and she says they will probably be deployed most of next year which is why she wants to do all this now.

Is anyone else pricing cakes for this far in advance? Are you increasing your prices by 10%? 20%? I'm at a loss as to what to do here... I'm positive my costs will go up within the next 2 years but who is to say how much?

Just wanted some feedback before I reply to her...

Thanks!

I am getting inquiries for 2010 and to tell you the truth, I'm ignoring them. Any pricing I send them will be useless by then and I've no idea where pricing on eggs/butter/flour will be 18 months from now.

If I get someone who is adament about it, I'm going to tell them that I will accept a deposit to put them on the calendar, but I cannot lock in pricing for 18 months. The deposit holds their place on my calendar, but I will not be able to give them pricing until closer to the date.

With the way food prices are going right now, I just can't do it.

Can you tell me what is the cost for just Decorating an Enchanted Castle Cake using the other person's supplies? I just wanted an idea how that will cost. Used butter cream icing.
