What should I charge for my cakes?
This is always a burning question and can make the difference between success and survival. Here is some feedback from a survey of other bakers and decorators:
- For simple cakes I charge twice my costs - for more detailed cakes I go up to costs x3.
- The fastest way to sink the business is to not value your work and under charge!
- You can start by finding out what your local bakery charges for a cake and then divide that price by the number of servings to come up with a cost/serving.
