I'm a newbie and so far I have been baking cakes for my family and friends at no cost to them but have been told that I really need to start charging so I have my first Tiffany and Co. baby shower to include 1 Tiffany box cake 8", 30 cupcakes, 12 cake pops and 12 marshmallow [rice krispie] treats. It will be a cupcake tower with the box cake on top.  What should I charge???icon_rolleyes.gif

AHow much will ingredients cost? How many hours do you think it will take to make?

Is this customer a stranger, or are they a friend or family member?

AAlso, be sure to check the laws of your state.

i'd do some online price comparisons with bakers/cakers in your area-- the ones that list their pricing online that is

 

and i'd price as close to them as possible with the goal to outprice them as soon as possible to avoid impacting ther business in any way

I haven't finished pricing supplies yet but after I do, about how much should I upcharge? I will check around locally to price compare too. She is a friend of a friend and I think it will take about 8 hours or more because I work during the day..

 

Thanks everybody!!
