I had a lady wanting an 8 inch cake, vanilla with van filling, and covered in fondant with fodant accents. she wanted them to look like fudge and small fudge dipped apples for a man that sells fudge b-day. I thought I was being nice in asking $40, and she almost had a heart attack! She was expecting to pay only $20! R u kidding me? People really think its easy to make these cakes, they dont realize all the work involved, they really make me sick!

I charge $25 for an 8" cake frosted in buttercream--and that's no fancy fondant fudgy do-dads!

Where are you in KS, mamapastel?

I'm in hutchinson. I usually charge the same for just buttercream, I guess i thought I was being nice, but not by her standards! She wants a 4 inch cake instead, she will be wanting 2 of them with just bc, nothing fancy. The lady is a family friend so I think she thought I would practicly give it to her like I do for my family> Which I know I shouldnt do!

4 inch cake? Those are such a pain! I'm just south of Wichita, btw.

That's crrrraaazzzzy! There is no way I would make 2 - 4" cakes as a stand alone order! Not because I'm a snooty butt but because it's to much work for a few dollars. Poor dear, mama, don't let her walk on you.

For what she wanted to pay, I just made the one small cake and then made some cupcakes, she said she wanted them but she never came for them so me and the kids ate em! Her loss!
