Cakeage

Yep you read right cakeage as in corkage. I heard on the radio that a restaurant charged a table for ten,who were celebrating a birthday party, a gut wrenching £9 per person to serve and cut a birthday cake!!!


Obviously this would be outrageous but if one looks at the principle then one can see the logic. Let’s look at corkage. This is when an establishment levies a charge to open an alcoholic drink (usually wine), which is the difference between the cost of the drink and how much the establishment would charge for the drink themselves. So if you apply this to a cake then cakeage would be the difference between the cost of the cake and how much the establishment would sell it for. So if it was a huge, costly cake then applying the principle, the cakeage would be expensive. Remember in setting up,delivering and serving the cake, an employee would have to expend time and effort and use resources (plates,cleaning and napkins) to facilitate this. So in a kind of way this would justify the charge BUT let’s be real and decent about this and NOT go down this road!!!!
