#customcake

I was reading a local forum for moms and someone was complaining about how much she got quoted for a "small cake" for her daughter's birthday. Without posting details of the design there were over a hundred responses chiming in how expensive her quote is and providing their deal of the century secret cake ladies. Some even suggest DIY or go to local supermarkets.
I find a lot of first time moms find it shocking when they find out the prefect cake for their precious can cost so much. They want it pretty, delicious, no trans fat, sometimes gluten free, egg free, nut free. I am a mom too and I totally understand you want to give the best to the child while fitting everything to the budget.
As a cake designer however, it is not fair to have all these moms throwing in cheap options without knowing what the poster's wants. A naked cake will certainly cost much less than a cake with 10 cute animal toppers and hand crafted flowers and frilly textures, laces and petals. You are paying for labour and craftsmanship, not just flour, sugar and butter.
Putting all that rumbling behind, I just spent 6 hours making and gluing the frilly roses on the bottom tier of this cake. 6 hours! I could skip a few steps but the results won't be the same. I love the end result though! I ended up spending too much time than anticipated and making way less than minimum wage. πŸ˜•
How much do you think is a fair price for this cake now that you know how much time I spent decorating 1 tier?
