I am an at home baker and (like most) I am guilty of undercharging. I just took an order for a fondant covered 2 tier cake that will have a (dummy) guitar cake standing upright. I know location and several other factors play a huge in role in determining how to charge, but any ideas on the average cost for this? Or does anyone know of any websites, forums, etc that are helpful in this area? I always say I'm going to start charging what I should and could be charging, but for some reason, that's the hardest part for me!!

Attached picture is the cake I need to duplicate.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/advice/help!!

I always advise keeping a note of time spent. Start by working out how much you would like to earn per hour (within reason) icon_smile.gif
