i quoted a lady £60 for a 3d elmo. i would have made it from 2x 8 inch cakes stacked and carved which would have given me a height of about 7 1/2 inches. she just emailed me askin if the quote was for a 45 cm (17 inches about)tall elmo. to get that height i would need to make 5 cakes and stack em. did she really think that a cake with that much detail and that big would only have cost £60 or am i the unreasonable one?

forgot to say this would be fondant covered lol

Can you please convert the amount to US dollars for those of us who cannot make the conversion? Thanks

sorry about the not converting i was just flabbergasted

£60 = $91

this is a very reasonable price for a 3d carved cake in my area.

Well, I think SHE is the one that is mad!! LOL LOL

For a 17" fondant elmo I would have charged her $200!

*sigh* cake muggles....
