I've only done a few ( for family). I know it took longer to finish one of these compared to a regular tiered cake. I have a friend that wants one for her daughters graduation party. She needs to serve 75 ppl. Here is a picture of the cake she sent me that her daughter picked out. Also what sizes would I use to serve 75 with this type of cake.
Cute cake that was picked. Yes, I would charge more 1) Tiers are taller than the normal tier 2) They are more time consuming. If you have a price for carved cakes go w/ that price as your base price. If not I would add at least $1.50 or more to your base fondant price (if it'll be fondant, if not to your buttercream price). I would charge extra for the accents too.
I'm not sure about serving sizes. I've wondered myself. B/c most are at least 6" tall (or they look squatty) & I'm not sure how you do the math on those. But want to find out. I definitely wouldn't do one again unless I had lots of freezer/fridge space to chill the layers.
at the place I used to work, it would go for 7.5 a serving....
but if that is above your pricing, I would go with the above poster.
I just took an oder and I only charged 3.5...
I think I should have charged at least 4.5. oh well. first one im selling.. and we will figure it out from there
Yes, charge more, more work, more $$$$.
Charge more?? Of course!!
More work, more skill needed to complete.
