I have had issues with let's say "Frugal" customers and I was getting quite tired of it. I decided to set a minimum price of $150 and I only work with fondant. It has helped a bit...do you have a minimum and what is it?
I definitely have a minimum, if i didn't i would loose money on the small orders. I still have overhead to cover no matter what size the order. My minimum is $50.
$150 is my minimum as well.
My minimum is $175.
$75, going to $100 come the new year
Mine is $200, sometimes I wonder if that is enough. I have a full time job besides the cake biz, small orders just aren't worth my time.
Mine is $75, but I am have an open shop so I'm always baking - it's not like I'm turning the oven on separately for a $75 cake. It will probably go to $100 soon.
$150 to $175, that range.
Honestly it depends on my mood and how busy I am otherwise... I know that sounds very un-bussinesslike.
Its not worth my time to do anything under $50, but if I am particularly busy I wouldn't cosider a cake under $150. But I have a business I do a regular cookie order for every other week thats $30 (although I also get thier cookie christmas gift orders that are well over $1000- so its well worth it) So I guess I don't have an official minimum but in the back of my head I decide if a cake is worth my time or not before I accept it.
My minimum is $150.00 and $400.00 for Saturdays from May1-Sept. 1 (Peak Wedding Season).
