Is there such a thing? I am doing this on paper right now, very organized but it would be so much better to have it calculate for me. Maybe I'll try and make my own...
Do I need "Quattro" to build/use a Mattrix? I currently do not have it.
Thank you for your time.
I'd like to help, but I haven't got a clue what you're talking about.
Are you looking for an on-line tool to help you determine costs?
If this is what I think it is - a matrix that tells you how much of each ingredients for "x" size cake or type of cake, I think this would be a fabulous thing to have. I've never seen such a thing so don't know where to point you for assistance, but I think you have a terrific idea there.
Well, that sounds like the Bakers Percentage. A formula, slightly difficult to comprehend until you hit the "aha" moment. After that, it's easy. Been around for literally more than a hundred years.
I'm sorry for not explaining that.
I took for granted people would recognize Matrix, since there's one at the top of this thread... oops.
Deb~ Yeah, I meant pricing matrix... I was able to view one of the stickies here (no longer can??) but as I remember they were built for mix bakers. Very well done/impressive. I wouldn't mind *trying* to build my own scratch matrix, but I'm not sure what programs I'd need (excel or quattro?)
I've never heard of "Baker's Percentage". Maybe I'll look into that.
what about cake boss???
I'm not ready to invest in a program like that *just yet*, maybe later in the year. Cake Boss is a wonderful deal considering all it has, but I just can't afford it right now. I'm sure I'll purchase it when I can.
Alice's Matrix would work if you know Excel... there's a sticky at the top of the forum, and you can email her and she'll send it along.
Thank you Jeanne!
