For those of you who sell sheet cakes for weddings, how do you price them? I normally sell sheet cakes that are 2 inches high for $70. Would you sell them for $70 or would you sell them by the serving? Any advise would help. Thanks.

Is this a 9x13 sheet or a 12x18 sheet or a 18x24 sheet?

But yes, by the serving. Always. Because if you just tell them "a sheet cake costs $70" the first thing they will ask is "how many does it serve?" So you might as well get that covered from the git-go.

Well I either sell them 12x18 (serves 4icon_cool.gif or a 18x 24 (serves 96). Do my servings sound rights for these sizes?
