Can anyone give me some assistance on what I should charge for this cake. It was a 9" vanilla & chocolate cake with strawberry filling. The hat was a 6" cake with 40 cupcakes. I'm trying to get an idea of the pricing because I've been told that I'm selling myself short.
This is exactly what I was saying about the time. We all put in so much time in decorating which is very important, let alone the ingredients and the gas and electric. I sell my cupcakes for $2.00 - $2.50 depending on the ingredients, and if they are specialty cake such as red velvet, they are $3.00. The McCormick red coloring to put in the cake batter cost $4.89 in a major grocery store (average $5.00) and you need two bottles of that for the recipe. That's $10.00 and you haven't got started yet. I ususally will buy most of my coloring and flavorings at Super Walmart because they are cheaper. The key is to make a profit for what you do.
