What do you normally pay for...

Posted by   + Show Post

I have an out of home specialty cake business and was wondering what you normally pay for your child's birthday cake.

I make my own.
I have found that most cake businesses I have used have subpar cakes that are really dry.

I taught myself how to make some delicious moist cakes. Now my kids won't eat store bought cakes.

I paid 100 for a castle cake once, her sixth birthday.  She still remember it and she is turning 16 this year.  Normally, I would pay about $18.. and that would be to feed a small amount of people, just family.  For larger parties, I would be paying around $50 at the minimum.  But, we do live in NY, the bakeries are outrageous, and so are the prices, lol   I never did mind splurging for dd though.

About 30-35 for a big cake or 36 cupcakes with a kit on them. I think the one I order for ds's party will be close to 40 something because I ordered 48 cupcakes

I will be making my own from now on. No matter that they won't look as good as buying one from someone else. 

The last time I bought a birthday cake for my son, the cake was dry and the frosting was disgusting.
