Hello fellow bakers! I am very new to the baking business. I've always had a passion for baking, just had a lot of obstacles and fears when it came to actually going into business. That being said, a dear friend of mine has pushed me passed the point of no return. I catered a very upscale cocktail party for her, I did the dessert table for 50 people. I made 60 pieces each of lemon tarts, brownies, mini cheesecakes, macaroons, and crème puffs. I also made the French bread for the caterer to use for one of his dishes. My customer gave me $200 to buy supplies, which she was spot on. I have roughly 30 hours into all of this and I still need to charge her for my time. I have no idea!! I need some assistance in this department. She wants me to do the research because, after all, this is MY business. I have seen most catering jobs charge per person, but I really don't know how to go about this and I want to get it right. This cocktail party gave me a lot of exposure and I got the offer of a lifetime...I don't want to blow it. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
