Yes I know that prices will vary depending on location, and so many other factors...but I charged $65 for this cake today and don't feel like it was enough based on how long it took me to make it (7-8 hours). I now have another request for this cake, and am thinking I would like to charge around $80 or $85.
It's an 11" X 15" single layer cake, with buttercream frosting, a carved out pool filled with buttercream & topped with piping gel, half gumpaste/half fondant decorations.
If it's not ok for me to post this, please let me know!! First post...tried reading rules...etc.
ACheck out the Pricing Formula link in my signature below.
If the ingredient cost for that cake was $15 and you have another $15 in allocated overhead, at a price of $85 you would earn about $7/hour with zero profit.
Sixty for the cake. Sixty for the fondant figurine work.
So you are saying $120 total?
