I was asked to make some petit fours for a function and was wondering do you add additional costs to your per slice price or is there totally different pricing for them?

I price my petit four per dozen... how much per dozen depends on what kind, of course, but my low-end price is $18/dozen (or $1.50/piece) for something very basic, but I also have a minimum order, because it's not worth my time to even turn the oven on for one or two dozen.

I charge per petit for.
These are labor intense.
$1.50 a piece.

Agree. I couldn't figure out how to get the icing to pour right and cover the dang things. What I ended up doing:

I torted a 2" tall cake, filled it with BC, froze it and cut into 1" squares, then stabbed each square with a toothpick and dipped in melted white chocolate. Gave them 2 coats of white chocolate. I thought they looked terrible (they were HUGE!) but the client LUV'D 'em!!! Said all of her guests thought they were the best they'd ever had.

Ok then .... guess that means I'm upping the price! icon_biggrin.gif
