All my cake flavors are the same price. It simplifies things for the brides.

I'm a box mix baker. Whether I buy a yellow cake or a red velvet, its the same price for me to buy, so I charge the same basic price. If I have to doctor it up, or spend more to make it (such as a carrot cake), then I charge a "specialty flavor" price.

Mine are priced separately based on price of ingredients and if there is a separate filling plus any extra time involved.

All cakes are the same except if I have to use ganache, curds, or actual cheesecake. And I mean cheesecake, not butter cream with cheesecake flavoring like lorann oil or pudding or cream cheese frosting, I mean actual cheesecake.
