I have been getting more and more requests for dessert tables lately but have been unsure about exactly what to charge. I have my price matrix to help me calculate what to charge for my cakes, but I had never seen anything similar to help with dessert tables. So, I spent some time with my friend Excel and came up with a spreadsheet to help me calculate what I should charge for Dessert Tables. This would also work for Candy displays as well.

I've seen a lot of posts on here asking about what to charge for these items, so I thought I would share my spreadsheet with all of you in case others might find it useful. The first tab of the spreadsheet is the template. I've also included on the second tab an example of a previous dessert buffet that I did to help illustrate. I'd love any feedback that you might have on how to improve this as well!

UPDATE: So I can't seem to get the spreadsheet to post as an attachment. I've posted it on Google Docs here:
