Do you ever find yourself wondering how much to charge for your cakes? You go inside Facebook Groups, Googling online and just wanting to find answers to how to price cakes for your cake business.
You guess, you charge $5.00 per slice because everyone else does in your area, you take some nifty cake calculator and try that yourself.
And then you still find yourself STILL not making enough money in your cake business to make a profit, fully support yourself, and you just can't run your cake business full-time because you aren't making enough money.
And while I teach everything about how to price your cakes for your business and charge premium pricing in your cake business in Perfectly Price your Cakes Course, here's how I can support you with this little conundrum.
When you don't have a clue on what to price your cakes or you are still undercharging and overworking, here's what's going on in your cake business:
1. UNDERSTAND YOUR BUSINESS NUMBERS AND GET CLEAR ON YOUR PRICES - ALONE.
Owning a successful and profitable business leaves no room for guessing. Get clear on every single business expense and how much it costs to make a cake.
This means, grab a sheet of paper, a pen, and a calculator and start to calculate everything it costs you to make one cake. Then, you need to properly charge for your time as your time is the majority of your expenses.
Do this until you are crystal clear on how much to charge for your cakes.

This is something you can only do for yourself. To run a successful and profitable cake business, you have to know your pricing structure, strategy, and expenses inside and out. No more guessing!
2. WHAT I CHARGE MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR WHAT YOU SHOULD CHARGE.
Cake designers charge from $2.50 per slice to $20 per slice. If you currently charge $3.50 per slice and you ask a cake designer who charges $7 per slice, you will think she charges too much and you can't ask for that.
3. BELIEVE YOU CAN CHARGE PREMIUM PRICING FOR YOUR CAKES.
Deep down, you don't believe you can charge $1000+ for cakes, or even $800+ consistently. You think you are worth undercharging, and not charging the prices you want. And you are really okay with undercharging.
Well, honestly all of this can be changed when you get serious about your cake business!
Hobby cake business owners undercharge, work with budget clients, devalue their work, and are clueless about running a business.
When you want to work with premium high-end clients and charge $800+ consistently for your cakes, that means you must change everything about your business.
You've got to understand how to price your cakes, understand your business numbers, know where to find high-end clients, extremely value yourself and your work, and settle for nothing less than a budget hobby cake business that's costing you more money than you think.
