I just started making cakes and cupcakes
People keep asking for prices so they can make orders
but I'm not sure if the price list I've made is reasonable.

Does anyone have a price list that is already made with
labor included that I can look at?

It seems that every time I make a price list I feel like I'm
being too pricey but in reality I'm barely making anything off
of my cakes. icon_sad.gif

clearly then, your cakes are under priced. i assume you have done the work into making a price list - you know what labour, materials, electricity, ingredients all cost, and that has helped you get your price. the price must cover all of that, with labour being at least minimum wage.

there is no point working hard for less than you can make anywhere else. if people want custom cake, they pay custom prices. if people cant afford custom cake, they go to a grocery store.
