I have a quick question. I have people asking me about base price cakes. could I tell a customer the base price of the cake is 1.50 serving and then add on the price of fondant pearl and other items would that be a good thing to do or not. so many people are calling asking about that and i just wanted some understanding on it. any suggestion are welcome

It gives them a reference point. Just be sure to emphasize that the final price is dependent on the final design. If you have an average you could give them, that might help.

"My base price starts at $1.50/serving but the final price depends on the design you select. Most of my cakes end up being in the $3.00 to $4.50/serving range by the time it's all said and done."
