Mil and Fil were showing off my cake pics to the new owners of a bar/grill they frequent. The owners have asked it I will ocasionally make cakes for them in their kitchen (Possibly for the superbowl if the Packers win the Championship), They would pay me like an employee for the time while I am making them and decorating, but I would have to use my own tools.

They would allow me to do whatever I want as far as design. I know alot of the patrons there and many of the staff.
I have not answered I don't know what to say.

before you answer make sure you get the amount they are going to pay. Are they buying all the ingredients including food coloring, fondant, etc.. make sure the math adds up you dont want to work hard to get payed minimum wage.

When they say you'll use your own tools what all does that include? How much will you have to spend vs how much they are going to pay you hourly? You have to keep in mind the hourly is only a portion of what goes in to factoring the cost of the cake.

I would charge them for the cake. It's a cake order not a work contract.

You need to look at it like a work contract.
