Someone asked me to do a cake similar to this one...


She sent me the pic herself. I think it's cute but I was just curious what others would charge for it.

I'm no expert, but I think I would charge between $40 and $50. I think if you can do it, then you definitely need to charge for your labor.

I hope this helps!

Looks like you could do this with a football shaped pan and add a carved square cake on for the tail of the 'copter. I usually charge $5 a person for sculpted cakes, but that is with fondant. For this, there is little carving if you use a shaped pan and with it all in buttercream I'd probly charge $4 per serving. Don't go any lower than $3 a serving.
