I usually determine how much to pay a cake decorator based on their skills. This person would have to be reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeallly good! Not many places would pay that.

You should get a really good decorator for that price. Good luck icon_smile.gif

I would work for half that if it meant adult conversation and a break from playing mommy and house wife. icon_smile.gif

i think that would be the top wage for a highly experienced and totally capable decorator. It might be better for you to start out at about $10- $15 and then if they are that good give them increases at 6months and so forth. but again you didn't say where you are and if you are talking US $.

Where the heck are you located! And what kind of decorator are you wanting? I agree with the $10-$15/hour

I'd love to apply for that! I probably won't even make it since you are most likely looking for a very experienced decorator--which I am not, hehe.

Going rate for a store decorater here is $14.00-$16.00 and hour...I think $22.00 may be too much.

what if the $22.50 is to decorate 5 cakes in an hour though?? then you go home?? lol

I recently had to hire someone to help me with a BIG project. She worked 2 days (16 hours) I gave her $200 and she was THRILLED! That averages to $12.50/hour which I think is VERY fair!

My thoughts exactly, Debbi! I'm holding out until we hear back from the OP! LOL!

yes it was a serious question, I just have a problem paying someone $10-14 an hour because my first job back in 1982, when i was 17 I made $14 an hour at the local hospital,and I wouldnt work anywhere today for less that $25 myself. And to the RN how posted, I am in south bend, IN, most rn's here are at least making $18 an hour for entry level jobs.
I hired a gal for $18.50, I thought that was fair, and its just part time, roughly 20-24 hrs a week.
