I'm a new cake decorator..just trying to figure out how much I should charge. This is a cake that I dropped off last night.

What do you think this cake would be worth?

It's a cupcake on top, 6 inch, and 8 inch. The 6 and 8 inch were both torted 4 times and filled with buttercream.

Thank you so much!!

Wonderful colors and design. If it's all fondant then I would charge 60.00. That's in the town that I live in. Maybe different elsewhere.

About $2.50/serving should do it.

I'm rural and that looks to be about 75-80 here. People here pay 2.50 for wedding cake but won't for birthday cake and it's the same to me. Weird.

Thanks again everyone!! I'm so excited that you think it's worth that much money! Like I said, I'm still learning!

Oh I meant to tell you as well that it is all MMF, except for a little bit of buttercream work on the outside. Someone asked earlier!
