Sounds like you started with a 10" square. That serves 50 in wedding servings. Was this a groom's cake? So 50 times your Fondant price. Base price out of my kitchen would be $175.

is the base 4" tall? The cake will only serve 50 if it is... How much of the pyramid is carved away? That will also affect the number of servings... here is a link to a cake chart for you to use the next time you need to figure out servings... http://www.ladycakes.com/earlene's_chart.htm

The base looks like a one layer, 2" tall. 50 servings assumes 4" tall, double layer.

And even if you carve away some cake, pricing is based on what you started with. 'Cause that's what you baked.

i dont think leahs ment it served 100, she was calculating the price with fondant on it...when pricing your cake you want to price it according to servings so if it feeds 50 you would times that by your price to know how much to charge..hth

I would have charged $4.00 per serving plus a $25 base fee for carved cakes and a delivery fee.
