Hi, icon_biggrin.gif finally I can bake and sell cakes from my home.
I have been checking prices all over charlotte's bakeries.I am very comfused about the prices.The prices change so much from one bakery to another.I don't want to undercharge or overcharge.So my question is,how much do you charge per slice?
I will be doing cakes from scratch.I will be using buttercream,ganache,swiss meringue buttercream, and fondant.
I you want to share your prices with me you can send me a PM.
Thank you for your help! icon_smile.gif

Your prices should be based on your own costs (ingredients, labor, and overhead) plus a profit margin. Checking the prices competitors charge should only be a validation of your pricing structure.

We used to make vegan conchas bread (called pan dulce here) based on a customer request, but we've since discontinued that item due to lack of demand.
