I need some serious advice, I have recently been trying to keep track of how long it takes me to decorate my cakes/cupcakes. And after doing these fondant toppers today I realized it took me over 5 hours! (Not including the time it took to make the fondant,frosting or the actual cupcakes.)
Is this honestly pretty typical or should I be moving much faster? I do many custom cakes so I am never doing the same thing twice. I am charging $3 per cupcake (for these 16 cupcakes). I have been doing custom cakes for over a year and have been undercharging for TOO LONG! I put my heart and soul into my work and love doing what I do but I need to at least break even! Any input/advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you all!
