Most baker/designers will have displays and photos of their previous work. These wedding cakes are already priced based upon their experience of making those particular cakes.
They have them priced according to a difficulty factor, time and materials.
However, there are two circumstances where you can try to negotiate a price; first, when a wedding cake designer says they can create something “original” for you.
The second way is when you "bring in a photo" from a source such as a magazine, or the web.
In both of those cases, the wedding cake designer will have to estimate their price based upon difficulty of the design, materials and time.
This opens a window of opportunity to you to haggle with them.
The quotation service we offer at OmahaWeddingCakes.com accomplishes the goal of negotating the price for you. If you haven't already used it, give it a try and see for yourself.
