Why would I provide a tasting for a pull-apart cupcake cake that costs less than $100?! Even less than $50?! Instead, I have to be professional and say, "If you would like to order a small cake or cake truffles to preview my flavors, then that can be arranged." But I would rather say " Are you serious?"
People never cease to amaze me. Sorry, I just needed to get that off my chest. $%#&
I would do a tasting, but would charge them. All you have to say is cake orders under xxx amount are charged a tasting fee. I don't think that is unreasonable at all.
Jen hit the nail right on the head.
oohhhh....good idea. Didn't think of that. Thanks for sharing that!
Definitely - if it's less than $100, just charge for the tastings. I bet you will see a lot of people backing off! LOL! They just think they are getting free cake!
So how much to charge for a tasting? Usually I freeze cake scraps for truffles...should I start making a couple of cupcakes as well?
i use cupcakes for tastings for wedding cakes. i dont do anything special to them but if a bride asks for a tasting then i make a cupcake next time im making that flavour of cake with a spoonful of the batter and then stick it into tje freezer until i have one of each flavour and then stick a little frosting and a fondant circle on each and thats it sorted.
