This is question i am making a 6inch strawberry flavored cake with butter cream and zebra stripes plus 12 cupcakes 6 chocolate and 6 vanilla number is 40 people so im thinking 2 layered Cake plus the fondant and the topper how much should i charge for all of this.
Have you looked at any cake serving guilds? How many slices did you plan to get out of a six inch cake? I believe Wilton's guild says 12- (way to many in my cake world)
I would suggest you get on line and find a cake cutting guild you can live with - I can't see anyway for you to get 40 servings out of the amount you plan on serving.
Price: Sorry I stay clear of what someone would charge for a cake.
Best of luck to you.
It's a shame the search function isn't working. There are thousands of threads on pricing.
I can't tell if you are new to the forum, but assume you are based on your question. Unfortunately, no one on any cake forum can "tell you" how much to charge. There are far too many variables.
I have provided a link to an article about pricing below. This is an excerpt from that article:
"This is one of the most frequently asked questions by cake decorators when they begin to sell their cakes. The simple but frustrating answer is that no one can tell you how much you should charge. Setting a price structure is one of the most difficult parts of any business. As with real estate, the price of cakes varies widely by location and is largely determined by your local market. Finding the right price point requires research of your competitors' prices, and a solid understanding of your own costs."
