I got asked at last minute to do a birthdaycake for a friend of a friend. They're only requests were fav colors pink and yellow, white roses and no fondant. I basically had 24 to 36 hours to make, bake and decorate. So here is what I came up with. I charged them 35.00. I am thinking maybe my pricing was off. It's a 9in double layer lemon chiffon filled with raspberry puree and buttercream dream icing and iced in buttercream dream. Then I made R.I. roses and gumpaste leaves and swirls. Now the flowers and leaves I had made previously, luckily too as I wouldn't have had time for anything else to dry that quick. I can't get it to load on here so it's in my photos.
You did a great job! Maybe next time charge extra for rush jobs. Anyways, I still think you did an excellent job for short notice. Sometimes the best cake design we come up with is a rush cake
I think the cake is great. Not to worry. I do agree. Last minute orders should have an increased fee.
Good turn out though. Sometimes people work better under pressure.
Very cute cake, yeah i think rush orders should be given a higher price but then again you would think that the customer would realise that.
Really pretty! Is that a ribbon around top and bottom? I like it kind of retro chic
Yeah I used a ribbon beacuse they wanted no fondant so I thought with the oval shape it kept it classy. This lady is turning 29 and she is very "classy" so to speak and a very modern type. So I went with what I had on hand.
Thanks aine2 I couldn't reduce it for some silly reason!
I think its fabulous! It would have taken me weeks to plan that cake! Hahaha!
That is a beautiful cake. I'm sure she will or did love it.
Very pretty cake. I had a last minute cake last week and I charged an extra $10. The customer didn't bat an eye.
Very nice idea there, I find for me the most time consuming is the planning on how I'm going to do the layout.
Wow...great job! I love it! I'm 28 and would LOVE to have a cake like that for my birthday! You did an awesome job!
The cake looks beautiful! I'd pay 35 for it and not blink an eye.
