Why are custom cakes in St Louis more pricey than supermarket ones?

Custom cakes are getting so popular, from birthdays to grand events and weddings everyone likes to personalize it in a way that suits their desire the most. But does that mean that they have to be expensive? Well, if you ask an expert, then surely they are. Custom cakes in St. Louis are made with a little more affection and love than any other cake that you would find in a box. The cakes that you find at supermarkets are sold in a good amount, this means that they are able to balance their cost to the revenue earned. As such they are priced a bit lower. On the other hand,  if we talk about the custom cakes then, they are made to order, in other words, someone especially orders their production and so they are logically and relatively a bit more pricey than any regular and ordinary cake at the bakery. If you order the custom cake online, then too, there are certain procedures that the baker or the cake designer first follows before starting to make the cake. 

 

Here are some common reasons why the custom cakes in St Louis are expensive. 

  • They are made with a special batter made with fine, fresh quality ingredients. From eggs, butter, flour coloring, and fondant, everything is mixed according to the taste and the flavors decided by the client. 
  • The time required to add the details on the cake as per the design affirmed by the client can take an average of 20 hours of the baker’s time to be completed perfectly. 
  • Cake baker’s time that goes into consulting and designing, added miscellaneous costs such as running to stores to get the material and to the total time involved from the beginning of the order to the delivery of the final product, everything has a charge. All these factors make the custom cake expensive even if they are ordered online. 
  • Another reason for the prices to be high when you order custom cakes online is that the baker is skilled and experienced enough that he or she has artistic sugar skills that can add an extraordinary charm to the custom cake that is being made. The learned skills to manipulate the ingredients to get out the perfect details asked by the client to the cake van cost you some extra bucks as well.
  • At times, if you are approaching a well-known baker, then it is obvious to expect higher fees for the custom cake.

Most of us are working with a budget that we would like to spend on the cake, the decoration, or the food at the event, but when things are customized they hold something more than just an ordinary version of that. However, the reality is that the professional bakers do not earn enough profit off a single order because most of that goes into buying the quality ingredient and tools, while the rest is invested into the labor.
