I live in Québec-Canada. I live 20 minutes from Montréal. I'm a home cake decorator.
3,50$ (canadian dollar)per serving for a buttercream cake with fondant accents
4$ per serving for a cake covered with fondant and fondant accents
4,50$ per serving for a 3D cake such as a purse cake, a car, train etc.
Considering that there are not a lot of decorators like me around here...(fondant, 3D cakes)
Is that ok???? Is it too much? I dont want to overcharge but before i was charging only 1,75$ to 2,50$ per serving and end up disapointed with all the efforts i put in doing my cakes Profit wasnt there at all.
Please be honest and tell me if i'm ok with my prices for the kind of work i do (you can take a look at my photos to see my work).
Thank you so much!
Your cakes look amazing. Very impressive.
I'm in Ontario and I charge $3-4/serving for buttercream depending on the decoration. I lean to the upper range if there are fondant accents. And I charge $5/serving for a fondant covered cake. I've not had to charge for a 3D cake yet, but I imagine that it would be a little higher. I haven't had to yet, but I would probably add onto the price if there were flowers and such on as they take more work to do.
I think you're prices are fine but if you're competing with cakers in Montreal, I think you could probably raise your prices slightly. You could find out what bakeries in your area are charging to get an idea as well.
