You can't charge anything for the Lorax cake unless you had permission from the copyright owner.

You didn't give sizes of the cakes but at $60 I'm guessing you made about $2 an hour after covering your expenses and overhead, if that. Would you work for anyone else for $2 an hour?

You aren't supposed to do figures that are another under copywrite, but if I did this cake, it would be about $160.

I thought I would throw this one out there. It is a 10 inch round vanilla with 8 inch round chocolate covered in buttercream with buttercream filling and fondant/gum paste accents. The fancy flavors and fillings are just not popular around here. I am not at the level of most of you but I think they are well done and I get rave reviews on the taste. I operate under the Indiana Home Based Vendor law and have checked with my local health department and been advised that I can sell from home, it does not have to be a roadside stand which may be a unique interpretation. I do have insurance etc.

I believe that this thread is for you to tell us what you charged for the cake when you sold it, not for us to tell you what it should have cost.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Beautiful cake! Please could you kindly tell me what exact chocolate mould you used for the chocolate shoe? Thank you :)

Hi here is the web site I bought it from, the moulds in here are fab. You will need mould 1 & 2 for a 3d shoe

I use this for all my shoes as I find it hard to transport sugar shoes without them breaking, I have been covering mine in fondant but I can now paint them as I have came across edible chocolate paint.

Hope this helps

Thanks

I charged $250 for this cake. Essentially it was a wedding gift because that ended up basically being the price of the products I had to buy. What would you normally charge for a cake like this?
