I am just starting a cake business and am about to set up my first cake tasting for a wedding where the bride has said she wants cupcakes. I was just wondering how much is typically charged for 3 people to come and taste some basic flavors. Any input would be appreciated!
We typically charge $30 for a to-go tasting, that includes up to two different cake flavor and two different frosting/filling choices. We don't do in-person tastings any more, designs are worked out over the phone and via email.
I don't think we've ever had a cupcake tasting, brides that are looking for cupcakes for their wedding have just placed regular cupcake orders. Usually we have a minimum of one dozen per flavor but if they are trying out options for a larger order later we lower the minimum to a half-dozen per flavor.
I ended up charging $30 as well and they seemed pretty happy with that- Thanks so much for the input!
