ADoes anyone ever order cakes from you with no occasion? I am craving cake sooooo bad right now, and I just want a cake that's from scratch and freshly made with beautiful homemade butter cream and I want it to be adorable and most of all I don't want to make it! What's the smallest cake you sell? And how basic are you willing to go on dexoration?
AI'm a fairly new hobby baker but I'd make a non occasion cake. Sometimes you just want cake! Lol
Smallest I will make is a 6 inch and I make them all the time for no special occasion. Sunday dinner desserts, hostess gifts, and a pregnant woman craving chocolate buttercream are a few of my small fun cake requests.
AI do them all the time. Just plain iced if I'm feeling good that day ill do a shell border lol. Ill do a 6". I have extremely small hands lol so 4" are not a problem. But nobody ever asks for them
AWe had "no occasion" orders all the time, usually from repeat customers...possibly because many of our customers had not eaten cake in many years (or ever in some cases).
The smallest cake we offer is an 8" round (we can make a 6" round but it is the same price as the 8") for $44 ($49 gluten-free), this includes a border and either flowers or balloons plus a short message.
I'll make them as small or plain as people want, as long as they pay my minimum order price :P
AI am doing a 6" lemon with blackberry rough iced, for in the morning. The client was a bride of mine, and her new husband didn't get to taste the cake, so she is just picking it up. I take less care for my "dessert cakes" than anything else, and it is going to take me 15 minutes to make it, and I charge $2 a serving for it, so $24. I did one for her that was the same for her bachelorette camping weekend, before the marriage, and it was the main flavor in her wedding cake. she is hooked!
I recommend keeping a freezer bag full of cupcakes in the back of the freezer for these occasions when you need cake fast!
I make them all of the time. I have one customer whose husband likes my vanilla bean cake with vanilla bean BC that she gets an 8" cake and "rations" his servings so he can have a piece daily:)
AI get people who make up occasions to order cake!
