Good afternoon, all.

I usually do cupcakes and cakes for family and friends. I did sell a few cupcakes to non-family members but now i have a quote for a baby shower cake for a non-family member. I just need some help with pricing this cake. It's a 6 inch and 8 inch. Also, how many people will it realistically feed? There are so many cake serving charts and I'm so confused.

Sorry, the attachment did not work. It's the baby shower cakes in my photos

An 8" & a 6" will feed 32 according to my party servings chart. If you are doing this in fondant decorated with booties like the picture, I would charge no less than $100.

Thanks for the input. Which party serving size chart are you using?

That's based on Wilton's party serving chart.....

It's a sweet cake, and the decoration is simple, so Iwould charge my basic fondant price per serving - $3.50. I personally quote that size cake as serving between 30-36 servings, and charge for 36, so my price would be $125 (rounded). Hope that helps!
