I really need some light on this.
I'm not a professional, but my friend wants me to make a cake for her daughter's birthday next week. She wants a princess cake. It'll be vanilla cake, with cream cheese frosting, a small round 2 layers, 8" serving aprox. 20 people.
The decorations will be simple little flowers in fondant with a "drawing" of a castle in the middle also in fondant. I think that's the best description I can give... hehe
How much would you guys charge? TIA
How about $30 -$35? What is your normal price per serving? You could go by this and add a little for the fondant work.
My problem is that I really never made a professional cake to sell, until now. All I have made were my kids and husband birthday cakes.
The other cakes, I made kind of for advertisement and practice, not really charging anyone.
I think $35 is fair for a little girl's birthday cake. I would pay that. If that covers all of your supplies and you feel properly compensated for your time, charge that.
I agree around $30-35. If it were b'cream I'd say maybe $25-30.
Yes, it will be butter cream, because I haven't mastered covering a cake with fondant yet. But I can make little fondant details with no problems!
I do feel confortable charging $25. She is a good friend of mine, and as anyone here, she is also tighting things up a little because of this crisis. AAAHHH!
Thank you everyone! I really appreciate the scoop.
