Do you charge the same for a Vow Renewal cake as you do for a Wedding Cake? Our wedding cakes start at a higher price per serving than our occasion cakes do because they include a tasting, and wedding cakes are generally more involved with consultation and design work, etc. We talked to a lady today that needs a cake for her Vow Renewal Ceremony, and she said they never really had a big wedding ceremony the first time, so they are doing it now for their 15th Anniversary. I was just wondering if this is typically charged like a wedding cake, or as an occasion cake.

Yep, I charge the same base price for everything...

If they are doing it up big for their 15th and they want a wedding type cake, by all means charge it the same as a wedding cake. You do the same amount of work, right???

I agree. There will still be a ceremony regardless of the style, or what takes place. There will be some sort of reception. This is a WEDDING regardless of what title they want to call it.
