It's been 5 months since I made cake due to the fact that I was planning my wedding, working extra hard at my full time job, and also house hunting. So there wasn't enough time for cakes at the moment.
I'm back from my honeymoon and ready to start pumping out those cakes like I used to. So far so good, I've got about 6 orders for this month.
Anyway, a close friend asked about a price for a cake for a bridal shower. it's actually her Mother who's asking, but you get my drift.
It's for 35 people, 1/2 vanilla, 1/2 chocolate, cookie dough filling, and roses (fondant), BC, and BC swirls on the cake. Colors are pink, magenta, and gold.
I would've charged $3.50 per person, but I gave her a price of $3.00 per person and the roses are $4 each.
She said that her Mother wasn't looking into spending that much and that her budget is $60!!
A $60 cake for 35 people.... I'm so over the "I'm on a budget".
The economy is affecting EVERYONE, not just those who want a cheap cake!
