Hey all! I made this cake as a gift for a friend of my mother's. Since I'm a newbie I was wondering how much some of you would sell this cake for? It's a 10 in round, covered in fondant. The plaque is gumpaste as is the mouse and bassinet. This is actually the first time I've ever done a cake like this, I think it came out alright considering....thanks for any input you can give!!! Oops, my pic is too big, you can look at my photo's it's the mouse baby shower cake! TFL
If it's the first cake in your photos, then first of all: stunning and lovely. Secondly, I would have charged $4/serving * 30 servings, plus $30 - $40 for the bassinette/plaque/flowers/mouse. So around $150.
Very nice work!
It appears to me that is a single layer 10 so that would yeild 15 servings = $25 plus maybe $10 for the decorations.
If flowers were be done in b'cream w/o changing the overall look would you charge for every b'cream rose you put on a cake?
I mean just because you choose to use fondant/gp why should the customer pay thru the nose for it? If this were an all b'c cake what would you charge??
I assumed it was a double layer cake, but $25 for 15 servings is $1.66/serving. This is just not an acceptable price (to me) for this work of art. It barely covers the ingredients and supplies.
