I was looking for some input on delivery charges. I find myself almost giving my cakes away because I don't have a good delivery strategy. I delivered a cake yesterday an hour and a half away (3 hours total drive time) plus I had to wait an hour because the hall didn't have the tables set up yet. I basically charged $20 for delivery in the price of my cake but on the way home I started thinking that only covered my gas to get there and not the 4 hours I spent waiting and driving. Would anybody care to share their thinking behind delivery fees? All thoughts welcomed!
