I have a ? regarding pricing of cakes. I have not done individual cakes for separate stands on a cake table. Part of me feels like they are just special occasion cakes and the other says..."hey, these are wedding cakes" and shoould be more expensive. I charge #3.25/servings for wedding cakes but dessert cakes I charge $32 for a 10". What does everyone think?
The only different pricing I have is if it's a regular cake or a tiered cake (due to the support system and all that fun stuff). If it's a tiered cake, it doesn't matter to me if it's for a wedding or a birthday party, it is the same price. So since this isn't a tiered cake they would get charged my cheaper single cake price (since there is no stacking, support system, etc.). If I was supplying the stands though there would be a deposit for those. I hope that makes sense.
Edited to add: A 10" cake serves 38 people so you are charging less than $1 per serving for that on your special occassion cakes compared to $3.25 per serving for a wedding cake. That's a huge difference in price per serving.
It would start at no less than $217, if it's BC only, for the 62 servings. I don't charge any differently for cake for a wedding, cake for a b-day, cake for Great Aunt Ester...and I don't understand people who do. Nevermind the support structures (I charge enough to cover that, trust me). But cake is cake. It's by the serving. A piece of wedding cake is a piece of birthday cake is a piece of retirement cake to me!
All my cakes have the same pricing and are called special occasion cakes. The special occasion could be a wedding, a birthday, a baby shower. It doesn't matter, it's all the same price and all the same serving size as well.
