That is just Crazy Low....
Fondant covered cakes go for around $4 a serving and that doesn't even include all that detail work.
I just don't get why people think cake should be priced so low... That cake is ART and I am an artist before I was a cake decorator.
All of you cake decorators that are charging $1 a serving are doing yourselves and other cake designers a huge injustice. If people even think they can get a cake like that for $100 it sets a horrible standard. Sure I don't necessarily agree that cake should be $15 a serving but it at least needs to be fair to the crafter creating the cake . Would you go work at any other job for $1 an hour . I know I wouldn't so why should we have to sell something that we put so much time and heart into for that equivalent. I would rather give it away for free than devalue my work so badly.
I am not being mean but people really need to stand up for themselves . I know a lot of people say " I can't get $4 a serving for cake where I live" then I say they don't want your cake and hard work enough! If they want $100 cake they should not be looking at custom designed and hand crafted cakes . That is why grocery stores sell cake.
We aren't "CAKE BAKERS" We are Cake Artists and designers .. there is a HUGE difference!
