Need help with pricing!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Looking for advice on pricing with this cake.  Its an 8"/6" but the 8" on bottom will be a dummy cake since the bride is just looking for "something to cut into" What do you guys think? Thanks in advance!

did that work?

the only real difference time wise in reproducing the cake with one foam layer is

 

you don't have bake & fill the 8" cake

 

you still have to shop, measure, bake, make icing, decorate

 

it takes very little effort to also make/bake the 8"

 

in some cases acquiring the 8" dummy might mean an extra trip to another store even (gas, money, time)

 

so therefore a lot of people charge the same amount because it's basically the same amount of work

 

whatever your per serving price is

 

i think across the country i could see that going for $4-$8 a serving give or take by mortal bakers not the super big names

 

flowers might be additional--might be an upcharge for more than double amount of fondant too

but just quote one price

 

don't detail the upcharge to the client unless they start comparing & ask specifically

How much will the ingredients cost (including the dummy tier)? How many hours do you expect this order to take to complete? What is your per-order overhead cost?

We price dummy tiers the same as real tiers.
