A new report by MTV News reveals how much sugar your birthday cake, sweet tooth, and birthday party cake will cost you.
According to the report, cake makers are paying $20 to $60 a pound for their cakes, which is $40 to $70 per pound less than the average price of sugar-sweetened cake in the United States.
For a cake that costs $20, a pound of sugar costs around $25, or $60 to $80 less than if it had the same amount of ingredients.
But that’s not all.
If the cake has more than four ingredients, the price will go up to $50 a pound, which makes it more expensive than a normal sugar-based cake.
The report also said that if you don’t like the sugar-syrup taste, your cake may be less expensive than the $30 to $40 a pound that you would normally pay for a cake.MTV News: The Cost of Sugar-Sweetened Cake in the US article
