How would you price a cake for 30 ish people that is fondant covered but THEN has that big fondant-covered baby on top? I hate doing re-makes of cakes that have been done over hundreds of times. But I am trying to open my cake kitchen and I need the work and can't be picky. SO....since it's not a 3D CAKE but it has a 3D figure on top (one that takes up the top of the cake) How do you price that baby on top after figuring your 30 slices times my fondant slice rate??? HELP!!!! Thanks!!
I price toppers separately all the time when the details on the two are drastically different levels! A modestly decorated cake with hand-molded bride/groom topper...
Be sure to figure ingredients, labor, everything for the topper too. Sometimes people find the chosen topper too expensive but it's easy to reprice with a different topper this way.
