Kawaii Cupcake Cake by ginas-cakes Kawaii Cupcake Cake by ginas-cakes
This is for one of my girls end of year class party's. It....along with the other cake has been the most enjoyable ones I've done for a long time, and has reminded me how much I do enjoy makeing cakes.......when I'm not under pressure! The big cake is based on a digital image I found on-line, and I thought I'd add the little ones for extra cuteness.

It's a all chocolate sponge, covered with roll out/fondant. The cake is about 8 inches high.

I think all your cakes are wonderful, you have so much imagination. I just wanted to ask your thoughts on not covering the cake board. I was asking for some advice in a cake group I'm in on facebook on pricing my cakes and I got a very rude response from another local cake maker saying that I should cover my cake boards in fondant, I do this to some cakes but not all, it just depends what the cake is. Is it just me or are some cake makers quite catty? I didn't think I'd encounter this at my age but I felt humiliated in front of all the other members of that group.

Hi,

 

and....oh wow, how rude of that person.

 I'm with you on covering cake boards. I only cover them if it's part of the theme.

The problem I have is that I seem to dent, knock, or get things on the board so I don't cover it unless I really have to.

 

I have come across one or 2 cake makers that have been a bit catty, but that might have been just how they are, not because they make cakes. I've not taken cake making on as seriously as I could do due to having a large family, and not enough time to commit at the moment.

 I am always wanting to learn, improve  and get advice, so even at the stage I'm at now, will gladly take constructive and helpful criticism........and won't get too offended if it's negative.

 

You will always find someone who will express their opinion on-line, especially on facebook. I'm sure if they were standing in front of you, they would chose their words a bit more carefully.

 

 

Is the comment clear on your cake group for all to read? I can have a look if it is :)

I have deleted my original question, I was asking for advice on pricing and if there is a general guide to follow as I've only been doing this for a couple of months, however it was viewed by almost everyone in the group as it shows who's seen it. Her answer was full of exclamation marks and I wasn't asking for advice on the presentation of my cake but she gave it anyway.
I also seem to dent the covering on the board or break the edging.
I think I'm a bit over sensitive and should just try and ignore people like that, I've only encountered a couple of people like this, most seem to be nice people

It will get better as you progress and get used to prices of ingrediants/cakeboards etc.

The hardest thing to price up is your time, and the one thing that I think people sometimes under-value.

 

It's hard to get advice on pricing cakes. Theres a lot to take into consideration with cost from beginning to end. With the

odd orders I've had recently, if I work out what I've earned for my time, it's been about 2.00 an hour so I'm just

keeping cakes as a hobby, or for family.

 

...anyway, hope it all works out for you :)
