How much would you charge for a bucket of beers? You can see it on my pictures. 3 Sugar bottles, ice, sugar shot glass, broken sugar bottle lying below, 3 10 inch rounds with fondant, airbrushed? I live in California. Thanks

California? Do you have a storefront? I didn't think one was allowed to sell food made in the home.

There is a great difference in just where in CA you are located icon_smile.gif Someplace like SD; SF or LA would mean a much higher price than if say in Bakersfield; Burney or Riverside.

$999. I price less than Charm City in order to remain competative. icon_biggrin.gif


Seriously, though here's ALL you need to take into consideratoin:
1) cost of ingredients including shipping or gas + wear and tear on your vehicle to go to the store
2) cost of utilities used while making and decorating: electricity, gas, water.
3) how long it took you x how much you want to make per hour

If you know that, then you can figure out how much to charge for ANY cake.
