You're asking people to help price your cakes, but yet you're giving advice to other people on how they should price theirs???!

I found the search bar and I been studying. there are alot of threads that shows you how to price cakes and I even saw a very smarm man name Jason Kraft  and his websight. I told you i'm not stupid, just ignorant. I also seen lots of good cakes and I can see I mite need to work on my cakes sum. I didn't know there was such good cakes out there and now my little ole cake look ugly to me. I don't no where people be sellin this cakes but they's better then in the bakery i look at.

No one called you stupid. I don't think you are stupid but I'm beginning to think you are rude. Some of us are really trying to offer you some good advice.

You said, "Besides baking time, the cake took you 20min..." planning the cake, shopping for the supplies, baking, cleaning, & decorating this is all part of the process and that's why we factor these parts into pricing.

Taking the extra time to torte/level your cakes, making your icing so you have the proper consistency to achieve a clean, smooth finish are all things that contribute to a good quality custom cake.

You can get there, but the fact that you haven't been willing to listen to what others have been posting in response to your questions is why people have been frustrated with you.

Many of these people run successful businesses and make beautiful cakes, take advantage of our knowledge if you want to learn and get better. Or don't.

Nope. I think OMGOMG is the lower end of what comes here to ask for HELP! HELP! NOW!!! At least s/he admits to ignorance. But this, folks, is the next generation of cakers. Don't be rude or you're the one who will be sent off to think about your evil ways.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

She has to be a troll.  I actually gave her the benefit of the doubt but reading her response about it only taking 20 minutes to make that awful cake made me realize this.  I just don't understand the point of trolling though.  Really, what does it do for anyone?  Are there really people out there that get kicks out of playing dumb and thinking its great to get people to post advice for some fictitious problem?  Seriously?

i'd just keep it light and not read too much into it--it's not exactly a deep thread anyhow  :lol:
