People are going to shop anyway. Even if your prices jolt them in the beginning, after a few calls and emails, they will see that you have a proper place in the market on pricing.
I just get to the price right away in all of my products. My buffets are as high as a wedding cake. I still make sure the budget and my pricing for the guest count are in line before I get too deep. Sometimes they feel they are above budget with the buffets, and then a month later, after shopping and adjusting the budget, they come back to book.
Yeah...I'm not sure I like prices on my cakes just because it loses that "boutique" feel, plus, then it also loses the feel of "custom". I don't want them ordering cakes off the website, I want them to order something new.... *Shrug* Guess there's no great answer.
