i have an order for this cake for 60 people, chocolate cake with cookie filling.how much do you think i should ask.thank you
i really need your opinion.its my first professional cake and its for 60 people.
It's a really awesome looking cake and looks like it will be fun to make!
It's also very hard for anyone to give a price because we don't know your market or what your costs will be. For example, I might charge $4/serving because I am a cake mix baker, but a baker who uses only imported chocolate and the finest butter might charge $7/serving because her ingredient are more, and then KoryAK, who is in Alaska, might charge $8 or $9/serving because the cost of ingredients is higher due to shipping costs to Alaska.
With the intricate detail involved in this one, what I personally would have done is charge my standard $4.50/serving and then add a flat "Design Fee" on top of that. A "Design Fee" is what I added to any cake that was a real above-and-beyond design that definitely took more time than a standard cake. I only had about 5 cakes this applied to, but this would have been the 6th one.
thank you so much.very helpfull
