I'm needing a few new things to make a cake and I'm wondering...do you charge a customer for having to buy these? Like, incorporate the cost into the cake price?
It's not anything huge, around $25 for SPS and a special cutter as this is my first wedding cake. I don't have any support system currently aside from dowels and don't have the cutter necessary.
What's the standard on this? Part of me says I shouldn't since they won't be taking the SPS with them. The other says yes because it's not something I was going to buy until this cake came up.
What do you all do? Charge a little extra or eat the cost since it will be something you can use later on?
I charge for SPS, because it's disposable. You won'[t be getting it back. The cutter is just a cost of doing business.
That's sort of what I was leaning toward. I guess that just means I have a new toy! :)
