Hi Geoff,

Pricing is very personal and much of it needs to take account of the specifics of your business i.e. running costs and your cost of ingredients.

As a very quick rule, I'd work out how much your ingredients will cost and how much time you are likely to take (pay).

Combined they should come to 60%-70% of the price charged. How much you charge per hour is down to you.

This week's live show was all about pricing. Here's a quick summary which might help...

What can you expect to earn making cakes?

Good luck!

Kind regards, David
