I am new to the business side of cake decorating and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much I should be charging for a "Marvin the Martian" cake. Its one of those character pans that someone gave me to use in making a cake for her friends birthday.Let me know if you have an idea. Thanks for your help.
work out how much cake you need, figure out the cost of ingrediants, electricity etc used in buying them and baking them. and then put a value on your time.
You shouldn't... since Marvin is a licensed character you are technically not allowed to charge for him at all. All of those character pans say right on the packaging "for home use only".
Now, they tend to all be one recipe pans... so they equal an 8" cake or 20 servings... so base pricing on that if you are going to sell it anyway. I detest those pans so I'm glad you aren't supposed to sell them... . All those stars... no thanks!

Oh my gosh...me too! I HATE character pans. I'd rather draw something on a sheet than do all those stars and lines.
I have a question about character pans. I started a thread about it. Could you guys please check it out an let me know what you think?
