If it is iced in buttercream I would charge $2.75 per person and if it is iced in fondant I would charge $3.50 per person. HTH

A cake that size has way more than 100 servings. You need to scale it down to meed their needs.

Just because they want a cake that big for only 100 people doesn't mean they should only pay for 100 servings.

I agree with chutzpah - you charge for what you give them not want they want.

Yeah, according to Earlene's serving chart (which is what I charge) an 8/12/16 servings 155.

6/8/10/12 serves 98
6/10/14 serves 103

As for pricing, you have honestly have no idea download Alice's Pricing Matrix (in the business forum) to give you a good starting point - that's what I did.
