Reply Pricing! Help!

Tiffany Palmer ...

That is very under priced for such a large cake, even if you are a beginner. It’s not just the time it will take you to do this cake, but all the ingredients, time from your family, delivery, the time it will take to stack/dowel/assemble/etc. Also do you feel like this is something you want to take on? I think that is the most important question. A 5 tier cake of that size is a large undertaking. How many servings are they looking for? Right now I have servings starting at $3.50 per serving and price goes up depending on design. Pricing is the hardest thing but if you under price yourself now, you will regret it later (talking from personal experience). Also I never include delivery in my price for the cake. I calculate it separately. Right now I charge a flat fee of $30 for the first 15 miles and .55cents every mile thereafter. Be sure you calculate mileage there and back. Gas is high right now and you have to take that in to account as well. I can understand you not feeling right charging so much as you’re a beginner, but $250 is entirely too low. <3
