icon_smile.gif I have a customer..actually a FAMILY member to my dh.....he has ordered a cake for his wife's surprise bday party......
It is going to be a 2 tiered cake, for 75 people. White fluffy, not smooth bc, doctored devil's food cake.....with 2 dozen white chocolate seashells painted with a little Gold LD.....around the cake in various spots.....also am using my Wilton Revolving Stand with a small lighthouse on top....a water theme thing.

I am charging $2/slice for this cake......therefore, $150 for the cake. Am I on target with my pricing? I also am delivering the cake also, but not charging for delivery, only because we are invited to the meal......a Seafood buffett supper......

Talk to me! Did I quote too much or too little?

I that's good to me. I know some people charge $3 and up, but I'm not one of those people so this is reasonable for me.

I'd charge more than that for a non-family member, but you can tell him that you're giving him the family rate...

Sounds like a reasonable price.
