Sorry to ask this, BUT.....

how much would you charge for this cake? And do you think it would feed 50 people?

TIA

Well, I'm not that much of an expert, but it looks like maybe a 9" round for the head, a 9" X 13" sheet strategically cut for the rest of the body and a dozen cupcakes. Using the Wilton wedding servings and assuming single layer, it comes out right at 50 servings.

I think whatever your BC charge per serving is would be right. It seems like the most difficult thing would be cutting the sheet cake into the right pieces.

HTH,

Karen

here's a rough approximation of how it MIGHT have been made from a 9x13 and a 9 in round.

Thanks doug! So, do you think $100 sounds reasonable?

that's $2/serving at 50 servings.

I'd do at least $125 ($2.50/serving)
