I have a girl who I've made cakes for before. She wants a barbie doll cake, the ones where the dress is the cake. I've not done one before and have no clue how to price it. The only pricing I've been able to get is from Publix for 47.99. What do you guys think?
well according to wilton, the wondermold serves 12 so depending on what you charge per serving, you come up with your price. you have to add in the cost of the doll too. Minimum... $60 i would suggest but figure out your costs first. I believe the general rule of thumb is 3x the cost of materials if you don't have a set price per serving yet.
Publix charges $47.99? That's a lot for a store cake. It doesn't seem right that you would only make $12 more than the store if you sell the cake for $60. But that's $5 a slice, which isn't cheap. That's a dilemma!
