this question has probably been asked hundreds of times, but I need your help CCr's!
I have been doing cakes for friends and family for a while now, and recently got a phonecall from a friend of a friend for a hockey jersey cake.
I originally thought it would be easy peasy and now that it is done, I'm a little concerned that she may not like it...
It is 12x15, vanilla with custard filling.
What's not to like??? You did a good job!
Did you quote her any price? I would charge ''at least '' $60 for it.
Next time I would double the sleeves instead of just laying them flat.
You know, so at the hem of the sleeve you can see the other side of it.
Hope I explained it so you can understand what I meant.
Cakes47, you were right! I fixed the sleeves and I feel better about it already! Did that ever make a difference
Now charge her $75!
MMMM, custard filing! Now that sounds delish right now!
$65-$75 sounds about right.
I agree $60-$75 would be a decent range to charge. Did you quote her at any price?
I originally quoted $90 bcs I intended on making it bigger but that didnt work out for me
So, I will ask for less when I give it to her. Thanks so much for the replies!
If she agreed to $90, do it!!!! You did a really nice job on it
and the custard filling is special. I don't know where you're from so didn't know
what you can get in your area.
For a pretty standard 1-thick layer sheet cake, iced in BC with borders, writing, and a few flowers I would ask $60 minimum. But with a double layer filled, all the hand-cutting of the letters, and all that fondant you used? DEFINITELY $85-90!!
Yup take the $90 and since it is double the pieces can be cut smaller=more servings!
