a lot of it depends on your area and your level of decorating. I would do a search on this site and you will find lots of threads about this topic. It also depends on what you are doing on the cake.. fondant/gumpaste flowers extra, fondant covered cake extra, etc....

It is usually said to research decorators in your area to see what they are charging and then depending on your "credentials" ( licensed, years doing decorating, etc..) I would go from there. A lot of it is what you feel comfortable with also.

Hope this helps some

Here is a link to a friend's bakery in Oklahoma. She as reasonale pricing on her cakes so you could use them as a guide, then I would call around your area and see how these match . Hope this helps.

thanks so much, that link was really useful. it seems like everyone overcharges- but those prices were pretty reasonable. it gave me a sort of guideline that i think i will use.

once again thanks icon_biggrin.gif
