Hello everyone :)

 

I know this is one of those hated questions on this forum, but I'm really intrigueD to know what is the going price for this cake in the uk market. I live in london to be specific. I made this cake for my friends engagement party, its a 8inch lemon cake with lemon smb and curd filling and a 6in strawberry cake. All ganached then covered in fondant. If i was to put an approximate price on costs i would say £50-60. Anyway, I'm more interested in knowing what you would charge and would love to here from fellow londoner's if any are lurking about :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

please excuse the background on the first picture :)

 

I did not charge for this cake as it was a gift and this is just a hobby, but i'm thinking of starting my business soon and was wondering on pricing.

 

thank you in advance!

more than that if you hope for profitability.  At least 90L

Lovely cake with a flawless finish. I would have made a couple of changes, though - had the solid tier on the bottom and the patterned tier on top - it would look less top-heavy.

 

I would charge:

 

£175

$268

Thank you Nora for your help, I meant costs in terms of what it cost me to make not what I would charge. It's probably cost more the. It would if I bought wholesale and watched my spending though

Thank you, yes I agree it would look better the other way round. I wanted to Make a white rose so that's why I made the top red, I agree with you though. 175 sounds good, I was thinking around the 200 mark myself so not far off
