I quoted $150 for a 12â Italian Cream and 6â vanilla. The 12â will be almost completely covered with edible images (9 photos). 4 icing sheets cost me $13. Also a fondant plaque with tappit letters and a couple of fondant accents. I donât do many cakes and so many times I have remorse after I quote a price.
This was ordered by an organization my company is involved with and when I procrastinated on quoting her a price she called one of my coworkers and asked her if she knew how much I was going to charge. My coworker asked me about it and I decided I better give the lady a call. This lady is like 80 years old, a real sweetheart. My coworker who doesnât know much about cakes said that the lady said âmaybe $50 would be insulting, maybe $75.â Coworker didnât give her opinion on what I should charge except to say that she knows I put a lot of time into it and I should get paid for my time. The lady didnât flinch when I told her $150, but I felt bad after we hung up. But then again, I always do! LOL! I charged $150 for a similar cake for my boss that this lady had seen at the party. So I donât know why I feel bad about it. Slap me with a wet noodle! Iâm such a dork!
Cake is similar to this one...
I am here to slap you with a wet noodle!!!
I know it's hard to quote prices but never sell yourself short. Be confident in your pricing and if they walk, they weren't worth your time anyway.
Wet noodle slap for you! LOL you'd didn't charge too much it was worth what you charged.
