You're going to get various replies based on location, detail, experience and opinion!! I personally start at $200 for a 2-tiered cake. Most castles are a minimum of 2 tiers. Castles require more detail (usually) than most tiered cakes, so generally speaking, my castles start at $250 and go up from there. Quite a bit up depending on the cake.

The attached castle was using the wilton kit. It had four more "towers" to be added, but I had them boxed separately for the customer to place when they got it to their destination.

Those Castle cake are REALLY time consuming, more so then I imagined when I started to make one. Not difficult, just time consuming. I wouldn't do it for less then $125 at least! But probably should go higher!

I charge my regular tiered per serv. price and then charge an additional $20.00 to decorate the towers plus $20.00 deposit on the towers........if they want the towers to all be edible then it is $30.00 with no deposit.

KHalstead, that's a good way to do it. The towers are where the extra work comes in to play...never thought of it that way, thanks!
