I am doing some research into CakeBoss, since I have had quite a few orders now, and I'd like to be organized and more professional. I have gone through pricing matrices found on this site and was wondering how the CakeBoss pricing compares. I viewed the demo online but didn't see anything regarding size of cakes, fondant details, etc. but that may have been left out of the demo. The pricing calculator is one of the primary drivers I have for purchasing this, so I want to make sure I understand how it works and if others are satisfied with it.
Here is a thread with some discussion of CakeBoss and pricing matrices:
And other general discussions:
Also, if you would like to check out our How-To Videos, the video called "How to use the Pricing Calculator" shows users how to use this feature in depth. Hope this helps!
Thanks Kelley! I checked out those threads and video and my main question is this... (keep in mine I'm really new to the business so I'm not sure what the standards are). I checked out the price matrix floating around here and notice there are areas for upcharging on square cakes, fondant vs. buttercream, extra decorations, etc. How is this reflected in CakeBoss or does the inherent programming take this into account when the user enters in the time needed to complete a cake? THank you for your help with this newbie!
You can account for those things in separate line items or additional labor hours.
