charge differently for dummy cakes... I had a customer ask me the other day. She only wants the bottom layer real and the rest fake... I dont know how to go about pricing it... no matter what its gonna take the same amount of time to decorate it...

any insight to my dilemma would be appreciated,

thanks in advance

Dummy cakes are just as much as real cakes..Period...so if she chooses not to have real cake...she still pays the full price!Don't waiver from the cost!!

You have to decorate the dummys just as much as the real ones... why not charge the same.

I charge dummies at 80% of real. I had a reason at the time . . .
