I have been asked by a neighbour to make her 40th bday cake next month. Have now idea how to price it. I have one of those apps on my phone that can calculate quantities etc so happy with working out basic cake cost. However, have no idea how to cost decoration. I usually just buy fondant etc and hope I have enough to do what I need to do. How much fondant do I need to make ruffled tier, surely you just buy a pack of fondant and find out when you haven’t got enough lol?!! She is after a two tier cake with a mix of ruffles, cake lace, piping and beading.
Looking to my fellow CD experts to point me in the right direction.
