Hi all!

 

I need some ideas (pictures) for a Minnie Mouse Cake that will feed between 20-25 people. Please also include how much you would charge for the cake you are sharing. I really appreciate the help brainstorming!!

 

THANK YOU!!!!

I did a Minnie Mouse hat box cake for my daughter's birthday.  It was fun.  It might work for a smaller party if scaled down a bit.  As for charge, I don't know what I would put on it.   If you did an 8" base cake, I would say no less than $70.  That's $3.18/serving for 22 servings.

Yes you are correct lots of good ideas on google but cake central is my friend as well and I would just love to see some different ideas. :))

@Jedi Knight, this is more of a "How much to charge?" thread. It's easier (although a bit sneaky) to ask on cake central, than it is on Google.

Or do your own work (pricing, servings, design, copyright etc.)

It's harder to do one's own work, than it is to ask others what to charge. Sadly, the people who ask "how much?" will blindly follow the cheap prices, than figure out if they are actually losing money.

But of course! I'm only starting out and it is just a hobby and for fun!  

 

I'm sorry, but if you don't know how to price whatever you're selling, you have no right to be in selling in the first place. I'm just fed up I guess (not with the OP) with how to price threads, and asking for tutorial for basic things.

I'm just looking for a guideline... I didn't think this was really a problem to ask. I'm not looking to steal anyone's ideas or work. I do this for friends mainly and needed an idea or two as inspiration. I should have known better to even bother asking. Sorry for posting in the wrong thread and sorry for offending everyone.

petitetreats729 - Cake Central does not allow pricing threads, or threads advocating the selling of cakes that are based on coprighted material (such as Disney character cakes in this case).

 

Only you can work out how much to charge for your products, if you are a business. If you need help with pricing, there is an abundance of business information both here on CC or on the greater interwebs.

 

Please, if you are in the business of selling cakes, also take some time to familiarize yourself with the legal concepts of intellectual property, and copyright. Unless you hold the copyright (or have permission from the copyright owner) for a particular character, work of fiction, icon, logo and so on, you cannot reproduce it on a cake you sell.

 

If you are NOT in business, and are a hobbyist, you cannot sell cakes to anybody legally.

 

But as a hobbyist, you can make your own Disney cakes (not for sale). There is plenty of inspiration in the galleries for hobbyist Disney cakes, just enter what you are looking for in the search bar.
