I have been asked to do a baby shower cake and am going to base the cake on the cake linked below
Mine will be a 2 layer 8" round cake iced in buttercream with 2 fondant babies laying down with quilts over them and fondant buttons on side. I'm not sure how much to charge. They want it to feed 15 and I know that this serves a few more by Wilton's serving sizes but that was as close as I could get to 15 while still keeping the cake how I would like it. Thanks for your help in this.
Hi and Welcome to CC, Angela.
Can't help with pricing as I don't sell cakes...
But I wanted to welcome you to CC, since that's not been done in any of your previous posts.
Help in decoding CC acronyms:
I suggest pricing that cake around $50. I don't know where you live...
if it's someplace like NYC; LA etc you probably can get even more.
Charge for how many servings you are providing. That is 24 servings, done in buttercream. $50 is fair - about $2/serving
I would add a 'smidge' more than $50 since you are scultping 2 babies as cake topper. That will probably take about 1 hour. I have a cake with 2 babies (in wooden tub), which I was paid $75.00.
I threw this together kinda last minute, but it still takes extra time and detail for the sculpting.
