I was curious as to how much is reasonable to charge for a 3d bear cake decorated like a care bear. I would use the Wilton cake pan. I am really bad at pricing my cakes and tend to undercharge most of the time because I feel the need to stay competetive with what the grocery store bakeries are charging. I know that is crazy because I am always disappointed with the amount of work that I put into a cake and make little more than my expenses. I am really trying to break out of that rut. Thanks.
I haven't charged for the ones that I have done because they were for friends and family, but if I had I would have asked $75. I think folks with more experience probably charge more.
$75 for just the bear...or for the bear on the round cake? They are both very nice.
I would agree $75 just for the bear, they are a lot of work to cover the whole bear with stars, my hand was killing me when I was done. (it is in my pics if you would like to take a look, he is in the crib)
I did a Bear Cake for a co-worker's baby shower and charged her 35.00 for the bear. It only serves 12, but it does have a lot (LOTS) of stars. Even at 35 that's almost 3 per slice for buttercream and I thought that kinda high, but I've done star cakes before and, as commented above, my hand was killing me by the time I was done. I've attached a pic if you'd like to see it.
Either the "Bear on the round cake" or "Bear with cupcake variety".
