Good Afternoon ..... I had a question regarding how much to get paid to decorate cakes.
I have been baking for friends and family for a few years now and I have been recently been asked to come aboard a little baking shop/coffee shop.
They for one do not work with fondant and well threw these little years my work has been getting better and better. (can't post my newest cakes cause I don't have Internet :0(
Anyhow the lady said my job will consist of solely decorating cakes and that she knows working with fondant/gumpaste is a very well paid job. I wouldn't really know because my cakes are usually a given as a gift on my behalf .
She asked me how much did I want (money wise) . I live I Los Angeles Ca and around these neighborhoods there is not one place that makes customize /fondant decorated cakes. It's a middle class neighborhood.
Anyhow any insight will be greatly appreciated.
I worked in a couple of grocery store bakeries on Huntington Beach and Long Beach. 10 bucks an hour - that's it. That's why I work for myself. I did learn speed in those places though.
Thank you for the imput. I really appreciate it.
