That would easily be 80-100$ here at the premier bakery.ALSO!!! You guys could do me a really big favor. I'm having trouble figuring out what to charge for my cakes. What would you pay for this? *Keep in mind more gum paste flowers will be added- see pic!
Oh I hear you....I spend so much on supplies and decorating tools that I don't even think I'll break even the first year! I also make cakes for friends and family for free. It IS depressing- It took me 2 days to make this and I charged my friend $85 because she's a repeat customer. That's like $2.50 an hour for my time. LOL!Very cute cake.
Love that the top tier is taller.
Assuming it's a 6" and 8", that's close to $4.50/party serving. And assuming speaking of the general public-
Although most people around here wouldn't second guess that for a slice of dessert at a restaurant- very few of those same people will for a custom cake. Or they expect Sylvia Weinstock herself. Or say they can buy the 99cent box mix and 4.99 box of fondant for me that I don't want nor use!
I don't charge. After tallying up all the running around/shipping/utilities/ cleanup I had and calculated what I was 'earning' per hour it was depressing. I pick wisely. And gift it. And it's relaxing now.
