Lots of posts have been made on pricing wedding cakes and sheet cakes. How do you price your round party cakes. Ex:6", 8", 10" cakes???
I haven't charged anyone for a round cake yet, but when I do, I will charge $X.XX per serving. That way it won't matter if they want an 8" on top of a 12" or (2) 10" etc. Just figure up the servings the cake will provide and multiply times the cost. I will have a 'basic' rate for cakes with minimal or some decoration, and a 'premium' rate for cakes with lots of detail work involved. (Now I just need to figure out my costs so I can hammer out the details! LOL)
Hope this helps a little. Maybe someone with more experience will post and help us both!
For round party cakes it depends on the details. My basic charge is $60 for a simple cake and it goes up from there depending on how complicated it gets decoration-wise.
