For our first cake, let's do one of my favorites.

 

http://www.verydeliciousdesserts.com/#!Lace-Inspired-/zoom/c1w0q/imageien

 

This is a 6" round white with white choc mousse & fresh blueberries, 8" sq. white with white chocolate mousse & fresh strawberries, 14" round..blueberries, & 16" sq. fresh strawberries.

 

The lace is hand piped detail of the bride's gown.  The 14" round is covered with edible pearls.

 

What would you charge?

Cake alone retail $6.00 per person= $1380.

Plus: tax and delivery (I'd give free deliver with this order)

AWow! I want $6. Hopefully someday!

Side note: I charged $100 delivery/set up in this case. The venue is gorgeous, but tricky with 2 sets of stairs.

Before you get excited over my price, keep this in mind: I've been a wholesale business. (I'm just building my website to go retail). So right now I get $3.00 p.p. from my vendors for this type of decoration.

SilverVeil Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 5:13pm

When you guys post what you would charge, could you also post where you are located please?  I'm curious about the pricing for different regions...

bittersweety Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 5:35pm

My $963 quote was based out of Nebraska.

DeliciousDesserts Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 5:46pm

ASo, currently, the average is about $1225 not including tax & delivery.

Annabakescakes Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 6:06pm

AI have 248 servings for $930. I am in Northern Ky, in the greater Cincinnati area. It would be $868 without the fresh fruit.

DeliciousDesserts Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 6:10pm

I don't even do 16"! That is a bloody giant bottom!
 

Chellescakes Posted 5 Feb 2013 , 11:30pm

My Quote would be for 251 servings , $1570  . I am in Australia . 

 

Bear in mind though , that I don't do buttercream so my quote would be for a fondant cake . Although on the odd occasion I do do buttercream ( never for wedding cakes ) I charge the same as fondant . I use ganache under my fondant. 

andreamak Posted 6 Feb 2013 , 9:59pm

$988 delivered, I'm located in British Columbia

LadyViola Posted 7 Feb 2013 , 12:09am

LOL, I dont even own a 16' pan. Biggest I have is 14. Anyway $5 a serving, so $1250 for 250 servings plus delivery (varies per location). I'm in central Texas, by Austin.

jenmat Posted 7 Feb 2013 , 7:09pm

I don't offer fresh fruit, so my version of that cake w/out the fresh fruit would be around $750ish buttercream. It's buttercream, right?

 

From WI.

FromScratchSF Posted 7 Feb 2013 , 7:17pm

Around $2,000 plus delivery

Brettley Posted 7 Feb 2013 , 7:37pm
