Pricing depends on where you live. I live in a small town and charge $2 per serving for buttercream with basic decorations and would charge $2.50-$3 for fondant covered. Check out the serving chart at this link.

Sit down and figure out what it costs you to make your cakes.. and then charge enough so you make a decent profit.

I live in a small town too.. I am in New Hampshire. I would charge $4.50/serv buttercream and $5.50/serving fondant depending on the decorations.
