Hello everyone! I am new to this forum. I have been making cake for only a year so I consider myself as an amateur. Well, anyway, I have a client that wants a wedding cake and she sent me a photo of the design that she want. My question is how much do you charge on a cake something like this?
THANK YOU! :)
the bottom cake would be about $250 $300 it's a sculpture but pretty straightforward
the three top tiers would be $10-$12 per serving give or take--those are also sculpted but also pretty straighforward for a tt cake
then some people think, "wow that sounds like too much i can't charge that much."
i do the opposite, i think
"wow i can get more than that for this i'd hate myself if i sold it for x amount" and i up it
i know my compatriots here use charts and graphs and excel sheets and formulas oh my--
i do some math and eyeball it
that's how i'd price that in my world
i would disavow myself from any of the gemstones & broaches if they be real
i love this cake -- it's so pretty -- eye candy!
there is a world of expertise in this--several worlds in fact
after one year at it do you have these skills or are you going to work/practice yourself into it??
so i guess my advice is
charge way more than you think you should
don't discount it for lack of experience
practice until you get it as good
or better than this
rise to this level or
pass on it
Lots of details I would say $ 350
Such an odd design, and yet so awesome too, I like it! 3 wonky tiers and a carved bottom tier...lots of cake. $600+ most likely. Probably more upon confirmation of servings needed.
