ATTENTION ALL SITE VISITORS
I've updated my order requirements to a $125 minimum. See Cake Pricing Info tab for more information. Pricing details can be found on the New Customer Paperwork tab, on the Cake Information - Deposits, Payments, and Cake Breakdown Information pages.
I price my cakes based on the current price of ingredients. NO, I don't charge you the full price of a bag of sugar, flour, or carton of eggs or egg whites, quart or half gallon of milk, etc. I have an Excel spreadsheet app that figures out the cost based on the amount of each ingredient needed for each recipe, being either a portion, or the entire box of cake or pudding mix, for example. The entire box is charged at full price. If I use a portion of a box, it is charged accordingly, as in, if I need a little more batter based on cake pan sizes used, I will portion it out accordingly.
With that said, if I was to charge you what the formulas figure is the price of the cake, buttercream, etc., I would only be recouping the price of the ingredients. I would receive no income, nothing to cover the expense of equipment use, tools & replacing them, electricity for baking, oven, water, along with my time and effort in working on creating your order. Plus, cleanup expense, as well. And I do all of it.
So, with that said, I take what the app has figured for each recipe total and multiple it by, just as an example - 5.5%, to cover my costs and income.
Yes, I do deserve an income just like you do at your job.
I have added the Cake Pricing Info page to help you in determining the kind of cake you want to order. The decorations on these cakes are not what your cake will look like unless that is what you want as you design. With that said, your cake will most likely have a totally different design . Four (4) different sized cakes, each with a description telling you the starting price, and where to find the additional items that will increase the price of each. Take a look and start planning for your cake requests accordingly. Thank you for stopping by Cake Designs by Fran.
