A lady ordered a Louis Vuitton purse cake and I've never done one before. It is very detailed and I'm not sure how much to charge. Here's a link to the picture:
It obviously won't be a very large cake but the amount of time and attention to detail will be significant. What would you charge for a cake like this?
Ok, so it looks like quite a bit of handpainting. Baking, sculpting, frosting, fondant, gumpaste handles, handpainting.....for a small one...I would start at $150.00
I can't open your link, which exact purse are you trying to show us? I have a minimum $250 for anything that doesn't come right out of a pan already shaped.
Wait...The Speedy? That purse is a bout 12 inches long, and 8 inches tall. Probably 5 or 6 inches deep. That's a BIG cake. I'd be inclined to say 5 or 6 hundred.
Didn't I read on CC somewhere about a caker being sued by Louis Vuitton, Inc. and LV, Inc. winning for selling an exact replica of one of their bags or was it some other high end designer purse company?
The Louis Vuitton purse I made was ordered by my brother. I only charged him $60. This was my first handbag cake so I wasn't sure how long it would take me or how it would look. So he was my guinea pig but it actually came out really cool. If anyone else asks for one the minimum is $150.00. Painting the logos without a template was very tedious and time consuming.
