I'm wondering how everyone charges for cakes to make a living, especially small ones (6-8 servings), which I have been getting orders for quite frequently.
If it's covered in Fondant, I tend to charge $4 per serving. But even then, it seems more trouble than it's worth (profit-wise). I am definitely grateful for these opportunities, but to potentially live off cake decorating, I wonder how it can be done most effectively. [:
How do you go about small cakes, do you have a minimum? Or how do you factor in time in the expense and how do you present that to a potential cake client, who may think in costco or vons price terms?
