A client wants me to make a cake with her child, for her child's birthday. How do I charge for that? Technically I'm teaching the child along with providing the cake. If the price of the cake is $100 (for me to do alone) how much should I charge to have her "help" me?
by the hour or half hour depending on the age of the child-- maybe $35 - $50 an hour --
look at cake decorating classes and decide if you are a wilton type teacher or a pastry chef type teacher
i would charge $75 an hour for semi private lessons because my classes are packed full
So you would charge $75 per hour and include in that the cost of the cake, not charge separately for the finished product?
I was looking at the Wilton course guides - they charge only $20 per student in the group classes. I couldn't imagine charging that little for a class per student.
Thank you so much.
no i'd charge the $100 for the cake and charge additionally for the lesson -- but with one or two students i can cover many times the material of most classes -- i'm both a professional decorator on the clock moving quite fast plus i know custom work -- i'm gonna teach the expedited way that i operate and do things -- i just manage to cover tons of material in my classes --
how old is the student? is anyone else gonna be there-- the mom?
AShe's 13, the Mom is a friend and was unwilling to buy one of my cakes at full price a few months ago. I think she's trying to have her trained
so she's willing to pay full price plus the lesson now?
it's more work to teach someone
