She wants me to make her a cake but

I often bring in baked good to work. Everyone loves them and compliments me on my baking skills.

Now someone has asked me to make her a poke cake and said she'd pay me.

Which I can make a poke cake. No problem.

I'm just nervous. I've never brought a poke cake in before. What if she doesn't like it?

I thought about making one to bring in before I make hers to see if she likes it.

But if she does it feels weird to charge someone for one and even if I did what do I charge?

They are inexpensive to make. Less than $20 I'd say. Everything is made from scratch and I'd be spending a few dollars to get what I'd need. They are time consuming to make.

Wwyd?

I wouldn’t sell my baked goods without the proper licensing.

I would not bring in a "test cake" to work followed by the real version for her.  If you want to bake this cake, do.  But bake only one and sell it to her.  She'll either like it and be glad she paid you to make it.  Or she won't like it and she won't ask you to make her another.

I'd just tell her the cost for a poke cake (what kind of cake is that anyway?) is $40.

A poke cake is any kind of cake you want really but you poke holes in the top and pour in pudding or whatever filling you want. I usually will take 2 round cakes, do that to each, and put a layer of pudding between the cakes before I put them together.

I think your idea of making a sample one is a very good idea.

Depending on the state, she may not need anything.
