I was asked today if I could do this beautiful cake (tea pot cake in album) It is a very detailed cake, bride was wondering how much I would charge, the going rate here is about $1.25 to $2.25 per slice and she is wanting it for 145 people. when I gave her the price she came back with she would buy the teapot and would the price go down if the branches and flowers were fake? I think this will cake away from the cake alot! I have never done a cake this detailed before and have no clue how to even start. or were to start this cake and ideas?
I do not think the price should go down if the flowers and branches were fake. It will still take a lot of time to do just the teapot. Also, who is buying these fake flowers and branches? If you are, the price of them should be in with the cake and if she is you still have to put them on the cake. So either way the price should stay the same.
here is one video of how to make a teapot cake:
