Could someone please tell me if I should charge more for a square wedding cake versus a round one?
If you charge per serving, the square cakes will probably cost a little more, because you will get more servings out of them.
I personally charge the same! which is price per serving! thats just me thou
I would charge a bit more.....square cakes are an unholy PITA. I would just encorporate the headache factor into my quote....... yes, I am a candy a**.
I charge the same as a round cake.
A square cake gives you a few more servings and is more difficult to ice, cover w/ fondant, etc. I charge slightly more.
square costs more then circle. more batter=more money=cost more
Same price per person
I charge /serving so square is more than round because there are more servings.
I charge 50 cents more per serving to do a square wedding cake.
It takes me longer to do square.
It takes longer but there are more pieces so you will get more $ staying at the same price?
I fill orders for many wedding cakes each weekend and for instance, a 10" square is 50 servings and a 10" round is 48 servings. If I charge $3 per serving that will only be $6 extra dollars and in my shop that just isn't enough to cover the extra time involved for doing a square cake.
Of course if I were at home doing it I wouldn't need to make everything I do as profitable.
Oh, I use a different serving chart that's why I was thinking that. Mine shows a 10" round as 38 and a 10" square as 50. That would be a difference of $36
