Please help. I new to this and am confused with pricing. I made this cake for my cousin's baby shower and got two requests for pricing on similar cakes. I am clueless now! The cakes are 6", 8" and 10", WASC with buttercream filling, fondant covered. The decoration and accents (including the shoes) are all fondant/gumpaste (except the train was a print out attached to fondant for support.

I live in NYC where we do not have any supercenters/discount stores like WALMART.

Please help!

And your new? You are good! I would charge at least 3.50 per serving, and for servings check out earlenescakes.com.

That cake should serve about 74......so


I would charge $5 a serving. $10 for the bow and $10 for the shoes, and another $10 for the train topper. Total: $400


Where I use to work they would charge $7.50 for cakes with 2 layers of fondant..... orlando FL.
and $30 fro all the accents... so $585

I think $3.50 per serving and maybe an extra $15 or 20 for the shoes.
10 serves 39; 8 serves 25 and 6 gives 10 servings.......total servings: 79 x 3.50 = $480 plus shoes.......easy $500 icon_smile.gif
