ATTENTION ALL SITE VISITORS
I'm updating my order requirements to $150 minimum. Details as follows:
1. I request that you contact me 2 months prior to the requested date. This allows for setting the date you want, and various payment options as follows:
2. For those who insist on calling within the 2 month notification requirement, and if I have the date needed available, will pay the full price upfront to set the date and will be $150 minimum starting order total, even if your order prices out less in my spreadsheet. Cakes, especially custom cakes, require planning, and potential ordering of additional pans, cutters, etc.
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. I have an Excel spreadsheet app that figures out the amount for whether I put in 1 as for a box of cake mix or pudding mix that goes into a cake, which is full price, or 1/2 cup of sugar, which is only a fraction of the 5 or 25 lb bag.
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 equipment, tools, electricity for baking and hot water use, and my time and effort in working on creating you order.
So, with that said, I take the total of each recipes total and multiple it by, for example 5.5, to cover my costs and income. Yes, I do deserve an income just like you do at your work.
