Hey I really need some help you guys on pricing this cake it's not really involved in the decorating aspect of it but she wants 2 tiers the first tier 8" mocha flavored with mocha filling and a kalhua cookie in the middle. The bottom layer 12" with chocolate cake that has chocolate chips all through it with fudge buttercream icing on the whole cake. Like I said it's not time consuming to decorate but it's a little bit more expensive than regular cakes and with all the chocolate shavings. Here's a picture me myself wouldn't get this cake but this is what she wants.....
Also what would be your advice on the chocolate shavings chocolate ganache and for the drizzle?

Thank you so much,

Sorry I sent the pic twice I couldn't figure out how to take the other off.......

I am struggling with this issue myself. If it were me I would probably charge $1.oo or 2 more per serving than your base price. Not only the chocolate but the kalhlua cost more.

Hope my opinion helps.

At the hotel i worked at they charge an extra $6 per slice (making the slices 10) for all the chocolate this cake is gonna need. Me I'd charge $7 per slice.
