Someone wants a dummy cake for 150 people hollywood theme. They said they will buy a sheet cake at costco and have it cut in the back and served. Weird. So how much do you charge someone for something they are not going to eat. It is a sweet sixteen with a hollywood theme.
I would either charge the same as normal, you still have all the decorations to do and the dummys usually cost the same if not more than if you made them with cake.
But you can give a slight discount for the convenience factor.
same money wrapped up in it,
same fine work....
same price PERIOD!
NOrmally, I charge 80%, but that's assuming my cake will be there for everyone taste and swoon over and then I'll have potential new clients.
If it's just for looking, then I say 100%. That will cover the "cost" of everyone thinking a grocery store cake was made by me.
