Hi there,


I tried to post this last night but it didn't seem to work :???:

Anyway, I am new to CC... I love looking through the galleries!!

I am from Australia and I am a bit of a self taught hobbyist :grin: I don't sell cakes but love making them for friends and family.

So, I made this cake for my son's birthday. I was quite proud of my efforts! The kids LOVED it!! I posted a pic on my fb page and an old work friend (someone I don't see IRL) asked if I would make one for her kid for $50.

Now... I spent hours and hours and HOURS on this cake!!! Its worth more than $50!! But that doesn't really matter because I don't sell my cakes- I am no professional!

I told her that I couldn't do it for her but it really got me thinking. Does this happen often? Do people think that all they are paying for is cake?? How much would you charge for a cake like this?
