Oh wow! What shouldn’t you charge extra for in your cake business?! Haha – I joke… I joke… kind of.

And how do you justify these extra charges? Simple really. You know why. I know why. A reasonable customer should be able to understand also.

Most of us cakers would generally have some base prices in which we would be charging out basic buttercream cakes out at, or a simple fondant covered cake with no extra decorations.

A starting point is always handy to have, and then your can build your price up from there.

But that’s not what I am really typing about here today. I’m talking about those little extra touches to cakes that actually seem really little, but are in hindsight, quite time consuming. Or quite nicky picky to achieve.

Those little details that might actually add an extra $30-$50-$80 on to a cake, but as sole owners of our business, scared to lose business, we sometimes throw these in free of charge.

STOP DOING THIS RIGHT NOW!
