I have this cake they want me to make and I dont know what to charge them. THIS IS NOT MY CAKE I got this off of CC. They want just plain white cake with NO filling.

This is my first paid cake...so pricing is not something I know right now

That looks like a 9x13 sheet....so I suggest something around $35. I haven't been selling cakes for about 2 yrs now so I'm not up on what ingredients cost. A lot depends on your location and what others are selling cakes for in your area.

what size are you doing? I figure out cake cost by having a base price per serving. I charge $2.50 per serving. Then I would charge like 10 for the transfer. Good luck

It depends on the size and what type of transfer that is and if you bake mix or scratch cakes and if you work fast or slower. You need to add all of that into your price ! I would guess in the area of $35

Holy Crap Karema- I think I need to up my prices icon_lol.gif
I only start at $1.50 for BC, and I think I scared someone off with that pricing earlier today icon_biggrin.gif

How many people do they need to feed? Your pricing is going to depend on how big of a cake they need, and if you bake scratch or mix...

So that's 24 servings. Figure out your serving price and add in the cost of your image...
