Was wondering if anyone had advice on what to charge extra for this type of piping. I don't know how long it takes because I have never done this design. So if I should charge for my time, not sure what to do.
This last one, without the elephants.
If you don't charge for your time .... you are working for nothing :(
If you haven't done this before I would suggest piping a similar design onto an upturned glass ?? something vertical and similar size/shape to what you need - I'm not suggesting you do the whole thing - but say... do 1/2 an hours worth... make sure you factor in the making of the icing, the sifting of the sugar etc etc.
See how much you get done in half an hour.... take a VERY CRITICAL look at it.... is it going to pass??
If it does then you have a fairly good indication of just how long the entire cake will take
If your piping isn't so good , I think you should pass on doing it ..... bad piping with this sort of design looks really BAD! The piping IS the cake and there is really nowhere to hide :(
AI think that is very good advice! Thank you. I will try that. :)
