If you don't mind my asking, what is your per serving charge for your decorated wedding cake.
Sure, no problem. My buttercream cakes start at $2.50 a serving, I will do ribbon, dots, a few icing roses, borders, some scrolls, buttercream swags, place silk flowers, and a monogram before prices go up. I add on if the design covers the whole cake, such as cornelli lace or stripes, or if there is more than a dozen or so dragees, cause they are just so slippery!
I add on for most any fondant accents, unless it is very simple and it is a small amount and I already have fondant. And I do the same with my fondant prices. I start at $3.50, and I'll do a lot, maybe a couple hours or so of work for no additional cost, but if it is something that is very time consuming, then I add on.
But, if I know them really well, and they are really sweet people, and I know they are really limited in funds, then I give them about 10-15% off, if I think it may mean that they will go to Walmart if they can't afford the "regular prices."
