Hi Cakestable,

    There is no way for anyone to "price" your cake for you, as you are the one that knows how much it cost in ingredients, time, overhead, delivery fee.. etc.  

 

Good luck with your cake.

$3.25 a serving and I'd never put burlap on buttercream. Fuzzy linty gross! I'm sure there is a way to do it without everyone ending up with burlap in their teeth, but every time I see it, I cringe.

Sugarveil has a mat out that you can make edible burlap with. That's probably what I would do. Why on earth do people want to burlap on a cake???? It's pretty, and I don't mean to dog on your excitement, but that's just not a sanitary thing to do.

That's good! Another thread popped up recently about burlap right before I saw this thread and I just couldn't not comment because it was on my mind! icon_smile.gif
