I have a client that wants two entirely different wedding cakes for the same day. One is to be served at a cake reception directly after the ceremony and the other is to be served at the actual reception. Both delivered to different locations. I am a home bakery with one fridge. My question is, would you charge extra for the amount of work you had to do to make two cakes and store them? Or would you just treat it like it was two entirely people with seperate orders? Thanks in advance

I would not charge extra, but I'd be glad to get the 2 orders. You should NOT store the cake in the fridge anyway, unless it has a perishable filling. And I would NOT design a cake with perishable filling.

Well I always store my cakes in the fridge, they need to be refrigerated.

*need* is based on many things, but I will assume you actually do need to. And it's ok cause I store mine there too. No charge her just like two orders from diff ppl. In fact, a more likely thread would be "do I give her a discount?" (the answer there is no too)
