a friend of mine told her friend about the cake I made for her. so she messages me on Facebook and says she wants a minnie mouse cake in January and it has to look exactly like the one i just made. i told her that cake is $150, than her reply is oh, I'm only looking to spend $50-$60 and I only need to feed about 25 people. how could I possibly do that cake for $60!

AEither tell her that you can't simply replicate the exact same cake for her budget, or offer to make a smaller and more simple cake that does fit into it. :)

25 saervings would start at $100 from me.  Also, just the hassle of getting a copyright permission from Disney would drive my costs up!

AI live in a small town and my prices are about the same as other bakeries.. Well excluding grocery store bakeries lol we've improvised. Going to do a 7" cake and 2 dozen cupcakes, still a little over her budget but the way I see it is if you want mediocre cake with mediocre designs than go to a grocery store.
