Hello, I was seen a recent upload of a baby cake with different gumpaste figures on it and I was wondering how you would charge for a cake like that? The cake itself is a smaller cake but it was very detailed. Do you charge for each figure or an overall cake price? I need an example maybe, I want to make a cake with little animal figures but am clueless how to charge.
There's no standard for pricing cakes such as those, but most charge by serve plus detail, and sometimes also by degree of difficulty of said detail.
When I did a cake with figures I called the local cake store and asked them what they charged. They charge 50.00$ per figure on top of the cake charge.
wow! That seems like alot?
That depends on skill level as well. People don't want to pay Mona Lisa prices for stick men. No disrespect to anyone's talent, but I am sure we have all seen gorgeous figures and some, well, not so identifiable ones.
I could never charge 50.00$ but welcome to Orange County prices!
