How do I price my cakes on cake boss. The spreadsheet Kelley sent doesn't have fondant and additional ingredients that I use. It's taking so much time to price out each ingredient and portions. Is there an easier way to price cakes or to add the info on cakeboss? how do you price your cakes? What do you charge for extra fondant work like 3d figures?

what I've done is entered my fondant as a recipe and then it figures it all up based on the cost of each ingredient that I've filled in. I also have a recipe for "cake mix cake" and "cake mix w/ extender" so then when you list a cake on an order you just click the little box next to number of item and cost of item and it pulls up all of your recipes, then I just go through and click "cake mix cake"-1, "frosting for 8" round-1, fondant-.5 or however much I need of the recipe and it figures it all up. I even have my cake boards and boxes in different sizes listed as recipes lol
