Hi fellow cake decorators,
I would really appreciate getting different opinions on how much to charge for a wedding cake as follows:
- 3 tiered square cake (16´´, 12´´,8´´) covered with fondant (standard height of 4´´)
I always charge more for square cakes when compared to round ones.
- Decor of the cake consists of satin ribbon around tiers and some gumpaste calla lilies or roses, no piping (nothing too fancy or intricate)
- Flavours are different in tiers.
. Vanilla sponge with fresh strawberries buttercream
. Vanilla sponge with fresh raspberries buttercream
. Carrot cake with walnuts and cinnamon with vanilla buttercream
Top quality flavour is really important to me and has made me earn a very good reputation.
As a filling I always use IMB (italian meringue buttercream) made just with butter (no shortening) and I flavour it with real vanilla, jams or curds I make myself out of fresh fruits.
I always use homemade cakes baked from scratch made with the best quality ingredients (butter instead of shortening, real vanilla bean paste,etc.)
Opinions and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
