I am pretty new at this and I still am not sure on how to price anything. My friend is getting married and asked me to make her wedding cake, she gave me a picture of a cake and said she wanted something like it. I have no idea what the price would be...
Charge her $3 per ser.
I'll let some of the more experienced decorators respond, but I think $3/serving is on the low end for the fondant and those flowers. Aren't those gumpaste? Of course, if you're trying to give your friend a deal, I guess that's a different story.
And, of course, can you make the nice drapes, and the nice callas--- is that quality in your skills set?
You may be worth $3 per serving, $10 per serving, or $1 per serving (I am in the later, in some cases...lol).
Price is based on the decorating skill, the baking skill, and the competition (area/location).
Oh yeah- and the "friends" discount.....
Thanks everybody for your responses! I will be sure to post pictures of some of the cakes I have made before.
honestly, $3 per serving is wayyyyyyyy low,,,but if you are thinking to give a discount,,then ok..but otherwise, this should be at least minimum $4.50 per slice with the tiering and suppports, and sugar flowers all done individually..best of luck!
