You are a cake decorator and wonder how much to charge for large, sculptured, big, 3D cakes.
And really, how can you justify the costs.
For years, I have seen so many Cakers selling these amazing cakes, and only making $10 profit on them.

I had this gorgeous cake friend, who make an *ah-mazing* Lightning McQueen & Mater cake for $90.
It was 2 x 3D sculptured cars, covered in fondant.
Add up the cake board $10, fondant $30, cake ingredients $10, delivery $10, food license/insurance/electricity $20, time of 5+ hours grocery shopping, baking, ganaching, decorating and delivering.
Well, it equals working for free.
Are you in business to work for free?
I want your business to succeed. I want it to grow into a profitable (and fun) venture for you and your family. By undercharging, it is just time away from your family.
You deserve better.
You deserve to make money.
You are an amazing person. While your decorating (may not) be perfect, I know it is good! And you will always improve.
I get that you aren’t confident and you aren’t sure what to charge.

How to Tell Customers How Much a Cake is:
I always tell the customer what they get for a price.
For example: ”With this cake order, you get – 3 cakes, ganache and hand colored fondant, hand sculptured details, hand painted details, shaping of cake, edible cake boards, labour and GST.” This helps the customer understand why a cake costs what it does!
- Handmade edible figurines are minimum of $30 each.
- Wedding cake figurine toppers are minimum of $100 each.
- Edible shells and flowers are $5+ each.
