I have just finished making a 12" rich fruit cake, iced and decorated for a diamond wedding celebration. The cake is two thirds covered with hand crafted Peace roses which took somewhere between two to three days to craft (26 large roses). Then of course there were the rose leaves too. The recipe I use is Delia Smith's rich fruit cake which is, as you would imagine, rather an expensive cake to make and I also used two thirds of a full bottle of brandy once the feeding process was completed. I do not feel I have over charged at pricing this cake at £120.00 considering the ingredients, time and skill used to produce the finished cake.
Love and light,
BTW - you haven't overcharged.... you have SERIOUSLY undercharged. For a 12" round fruit cake with basic decoration, I'd charge £145, plus all those flowers... surely another £100 of your time, at least?!!!!!
I realise that London prices are slightly higher than in the north, but even so.... think of all the work you've put into it. You need to VALUE your time - because if you don't, no-one else will.
