I made this for my sons birthday. I was asked from someone how much I would charge for a cake like this. The cake is very basic, but the fondant guitar took 2 days on & off. If someone could take a quick peek, I would appreciate it. I also cant lie...Im kinda proud of my little guitar.

Thanks so much

Wow, you SHOULD be proud of that guitar, it's awesome! You did a great job on that cake.

I would say $40.

You do not say what size the cake is. I would start charging at $2.50/serving (1x2x4 - wilton wedding serving chart sizes) this only includes the buttercream filling, if they want something else it goes up.

I would probably add another 15-20 for the guitar... single items that are detailed like that seem to take longer than if you did 15

That is a beautiful little guitar, I don't know what size the cake is. Looks like a 8 or 9 inch. I charge 25-30 for 8 and 30-35 for a 9 inch basic cake. The guitar would be about 15-20.
