This one is an 8,6,4. I charged $100
Granted, I'm in a smaller city....but I'm tired of working myself to death just to keep my head above water.
Oh my God, you should have charged at LEAST $600 for that wedding cake with the gumpaste flowers! Have you priced the cost of the flowers alone? And you had so many! Try going online and pricing what it would be to purchase your sugar flowers from a sugar artist. Plus your work was perfection.
Your pink and zebra cake should have been $200 at least. Do you figure the cost per serving? Where are you coming up with your prices?
People expect to pay more for wedding cakes...and if they don't then you don't need the headache anyway! I worked for a custom cake bakery and I can tell you there is no way they would charge any less than what I just quoted for the kind of cakes you made. If you don't charge what you're worth then no one will pay what you're worth.
