Hello! I have only made cakes for my family up until now. My neighbor wants a cake similar to one I have already made. I have no idea what to charge her. Do I do her a favor and charge cost? Do I do what it would normally cost? What in the world would people even pay for this?
Keep in mind this was my 2nd cake ever....this one will be better
I know you all get these questions alot...thanks so much for the help.
That's a really cool cake If you charge her cost, she's always going to expect cakes at cost. And then if her friends see the cake and want one, she's gonna say, "Oh I got it from danzer. She makes them for $20!"
You won't be doing YOURSELF any favors by doing it at cost. That cake is what I consider to be a carved cake, and my price for carved starts at $4.00 per serving for easy shapes.
how big is it and how long did it take you?
Thanks so much! I was thinking the same thing... i certainly don't want to be known as the "cheap" cake decorator!
It has been awhile since I made it...i believe it was about a foot long.
It is a wondermold pan and 3 pyrex bowls carved to be the nose.
It was one of my first cakes ...so it took a very long time! haha...but i'm hoping to do it faster this week
Thanks so much!!!
