I got a call today from a co-worker who needs 2 different half sheet cakes for Saturday. One is marble with whipped frosting and an edible image. The other is chocolate with buttercream and an edible image. The way I priced it, it came out to roughly $141 each. Does that sound right, or is that to much for a sheet cake?
I haven't told her the price yet because I want some input on the price. And that's not including extra for ordering late or anything. I have to move my plans on Friday to pull these cakes off.
how many servings in your half sheet cakes? the terms quarter half & full sheet can be confusing --
I have the half sheet pans that you buy in Sam's Club. They are 13X18
so one layer? serving size 2x2? 50 servings give or take?
if yes, yes and yes -- then $141 is respectable
I always do double layers on sheet cakes for the height without frosting height. I really don't do a lot of sheet cakes, which is why this is stumping me.
so that's 100 servings for less than $1.40 each* -- how does that sound to you?
*edible image is ten bucks or so maybe
you could do a double layer 9x13 which serves 50 give or take for the $140 -- so you'd just bake the half sheet and cut it in half and stack them on top of each other -- they'd be about 4" tall? or is she expecting a certain size she's seen you do before?
She wanted to be a cheapskate. She only wanted to pay $50 total. I'm like NOOOOOOO can do. Supplies cost more than that.
$25 for each cake? whoa that's quite a price -- good luck to her -- and you were going to give her twice as much! she needs to go to sam's they're only $17.63 she can get some change back
