Rachel’s Bakery makes desserts for local restaurants. Each pan of gourmet brownies requires 500 g flour, 125 mL chopped pecans, 60 mL cocoa, 250 g sugar, 125 mL chocolate chips, 2 eggs, and 90 mL oil. Each pan requires 10 minutes of direct labour for mixing, cutting, and packaging. Each pan must bake for 30 minutes. Restaurants purchase the gourmet brownies by the pan, not by the individual serving. Each pan is currently sold for $12. Standard costs are $1.92 per bag of flour (4 kg in a bag); $6.00 per bag of pecans (750 mL per bag); $2.50 per tin of cocoa (500 mL per tin); $2.40 per bag of sugar (4 kg in a bag); $1.80 per bag of chocolate chips (500 mL per bag); $1.08 per dozen eggs; $1.17 per bottle of oil (1.5 L per bottle); and $0.50 for packaging materials. The standard wage rate is $12 per hour. Rachel allocates bakery overhead at $7.00 per oven hour.
