I did this cake a few weeks ago and already have a request for another 3D cake. It took me about a four days to make all the decorations for the cake. I baked two 12x15 cakes, and made a huge load of BC icing for it, as I didnt want to run out. I bought the wooden circles, for wheels. I also purchased the candles to add to the theme. It took me and my husband two hours of cutting and piecing the cake together. Some of the decorations are royal icing and the extension ladder is gumpaste. So I was wondering what would you have charged for this cake...

I think sculptures should start at $5 a serving. Your cake is well worth every penny of that at least and your workmanship is absolutely glorious.

That is AMAZING! Yet another person to inspire us!

We agree with k8. You should start at at least $5 per serving. Use the Wilton Yearbook to help you figure out the number of servings and price it from there.

Good luck!

Thank you everyone. I have to give credit to TheCakeWizard as I bought her detail plan for this cake. I did make some changes to it but not much.
