I was thinking about going to a few local restaurants to try and sell my cakes to them but I have no idea what to charge for it. It costs me about $16 to make an 8 inch and right now I sell them for $30 to individuals. I know...I know.....I'm probably undercharging. It's just a basic carrot cake with cream cheese icing and a shell border.

I would charge the same, unless they buy so many cakes that you can buy your ingredients in bulk and save money on the cost.

Charge the same as you would for anyone else.

Does it cost you less to make a cake for a restaurant as opposed to a cake for your neighbor? Does it take less time to make a cake for a restaurant?

Didn't think so.
