Sheet cake help. - Page 2

Oh yep. I get the opposite a lot too, people wanting to cram 200 servings into a three tier cake, for example. Yeesh, no, that's like 5 maybe 6 tiers.

Have you been accused of ripping people off or something?

No I haven't, I was just saying that I try not to have people order more than they need, that way they can't come back to me and ask why I didn't tell them better.  I know lots around my area that just give the people the amount of tiers that they come to them with instead of explaining how many servings the picture would really feed...then the people have more cake than needed.

 

I understand sometimes people don't care, they want the cake that they want...I just like to ask servings and go from there.

Don't be afraid of cake, make cake be afraid of what you will turn it into!

So what would y'all's price be on a 11X15, single layer cake, torted, with piped roses on the sides and simple writing on top? Didn't want to start a whole new thread to get an answer and see if I am on target. I was thinking $60. I don't do sheet cakes much, and usually always do tiered or other specialty designs. (I honestly don't like sheet cake...just not my thing lol). The lady is wanting one per month for their nursing home residents. Do yall think $60 is good for something pretty plain Jane? I'm from semi-rural but quickly growing part of Alabama.

That's about 35 servings, so no $60 isn't even $2 per serving.

I'm not a sheet cake fan either, but they are easy to serve.  You still have cake, filling, bc, board and box.  It adds up. However, if she'd going to guarantee a cake a month, I could be inclined to give her a break. . .  I must be gettin' soft.
