Well, my base price for cakes is 3.00 per serving so this would start at 120. Are you including the helmet in the servings? if so then the cake would be more depending on how much you charge for a 3d cake.

The cake was 10 by 10 and the helmet is cake made from 1/2 a sportsball and 2 6in rounds.

Well a 10" square will serve 50.. the 6" rounds with the 1/2 ball I would count as 15 servings.. So you have 65 servings of cake there. Do you have a base price per servign? Mine is $4.50 for buttercream.. with all the extra details I'd charge $5.00/serving.. so that'd be $325.00. icon_biggrin.gif

Charging $125 you charged her $1.92/serving. icon_smile.gif
