I will be making an 8-inch yellow cake covered in IMBC with strawberries on top and adorning around the cake. The cake will not really be heavily decorated. I feel funny charging $60 for this cake. I charge $2.50 per serving. 8-inch serves 24. I was thinking I would bring the price down. What do you all think?
The price is the price. Charge your going rate.
I agree. Charge what you charge per slice. Don't make it any less cost deserving. Your time and effort are probably worth more than what you are charging for the cakes you heavily decorate. And looking at your FB page, you do nice work!
My yellow homestyle cake is $37.00, strawberries are $21.00. The cake has a border and maybe rosettes on top. This is also my least expensive cake. Add delivery and it's a good profit.
How much are the strawberries costing you?
To me the price of them would make up for any lack of decorating I wasn't doing on the cake.
