Oh dear, hopefully $4.50 will be too much for and you can get out of it all together. Ouch.

I think you're in this for $4.50.  It's not really cool to change a price once it's quoted.  Chalk it up to learning.  Painfully.

 

 

ooh that's so cool that i adequately explained what i meant <high five> leah!

 

so full rows and columns of oval cuts

 

ovel  oval  oval  oval

oval  oval  oval  oval

oval  oval  oval  oval

 

this way there will be enough fondant to cover the top of the corners

 

to make the oval outline on top of each cake too

 

(i just tested it)

 

you might even need to cut more than three ovals in each row and column

 

make the ruler your friend!

Hysterical! 

 

Thesweettaste~~After reading all the comments, you may wish to contact the client and tell her that you made an error in the quote. 

 

"Dear xxx,

 

My apologies for the earlier quote of $4.50 per mini-cake.  After some additional research into the time required to make this exact design for 30 mini-cakes, the pricing I originally quoted is far too low.  May I suggest an alternative?"

 

BEFORE you send this, decide what you CAN offer for $4.50 or less for 30 guests.  Perhaps cupcakes with a grey fondant top, with a white fondant circle, and a pink fondant heart.  Those could easily be made for $3-4 a cupcake.

if they want it  (please god no) it comes down to basically 60 fondant rollings plus hearts

 

which is of course 59 more than anyone would want to do but

 

30 grey & then covering

 

30 whites & cutting & applying

 

buncha hearts

 

y'know if you had someone to talk to while you were doing this or someone to help

 

i mean a teenager or a spouse could do a lot and it makes a huge difference

 

they could trim the grey after you get it to fit--knead it up for you

 

a ten year old could cut the hearts after you roll it out

 

those seemingly little things can cut down the overal time you need... on the therapists couch afterwards

Companion Cube! Nice! icon_biggrin.gif there's a video on you tube that might help you out. Just search companion cube cake. This girl does a baking show called nerdy nummies. Baking all things nerdy every week. But that does sound like a lot of work. As a beginner I would have at least charged $10 per cake. Hope this helps icon_smile.gif
