Although I've been a fan of CC forums for a while, this is my first time posting. Hopefully some of you lovely ladies can help me out :) I have been asked to provide mini desserts for a wedding reception in November. The menu will consist of 3 types of desserts. Right now, it's looking like 2" fruit tarts, 2" cupcakes, and 2" chocolate cups filled with mousse. I'm meeting with the bride next week to make final choices and discuss pricing.
I've made cakes before, but this is my first time making mini desserts for a client. I'm usually a little stumped when it comes to pricing, but in this case, the bride-to-be is my grandmother's boss's fiance. Yikes! My grandmother keeps saying things like, "you have to have lists of ideas for her, don't just ask what she wants," and "make sure you don't overcharge her," and "make sure you can do this in mini sizes!" I understand the worry, but it's making ME worried about coming up with a price!! Is it tacky to ask what her budget is?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
