I have a question and this is probably going to sound quite silly. If you have someone that comes to you with a cake order and you have to buy a certain pan to make this cake. Do you charge them for having to buy the pan and if so how much?
I have had to buy many pans before when having specialty cakes.. I have never charged for the use of the pan because eventually you will use it again!!! If it is a pan you honestly doubt you would use again you could try to locate a store that does pan rentals. There is one where i am at and it charges $20 deposit that you get back on return of the pan and then $2 a day in which I would charge them the $ for the cake rental..
No, you don't charge them. It part of the cost of doing business.
true never charge them specially if ur gonna use the pan again
True its part of the business cost but if its a pan you'd have no chance of using again or often try see if you can hire it. That will be more cost effective for you.
