Hi All,

 

I make cakes for birthdays and weddings etc, but dont do it that often, My friend has asked me to make her a wedding cake, basically to feed 90-100 people and wants it 2 tiers, vanilla, rasberry and chocolate cake, ivory icing with a lace effect one each tier. How much would you charge? I dont want to be out of pocket!

 

Thanks

Sarah

Go to search bar...type in your question and be prepared to be inundated with tips on how to price.  It varies and is impossible to answer easily, quickly and accurately.

 

Good luck!

AYou need to price out all of you ingredients you need. Including edible and inedible.. piping bags, cake, boards, or anything you use. Then decide how much you think your time is worth and add it to the ingredients cost. It varies from person to person. In the end it is really just up to you.

Plus a two-tiered cake for that many people is going to be really squat. You might want to do at least three tiers.

Price it the way you price the other cakes - add all your ingredients, miscellaneous items, plus business overhead. And keep track of your time.
