I use a 6" one layer, decorate it all up and I do not charge for it. Now if they want something extremely decorated then I do charge for them and the pricing depends on what it is decorated with and how much. thumbs_up.gif

I use a single layer 6" torted, filled, and iced with buttercream. I charge $10 unless they want a fondant figure on it then I charge around $15-18.

I use a 6 in round or if I do a square sometimes I trim from rectangle and use the trimmings to make my square. I always do a 2 layer, the filling is the messy fun icon_smile.gif and I dont add fondant or gumpaste normally because ym smash are for 1 yr olds and I dont want to feel responsible if mom or dad does not take it off and baby gets a gooey chunk.
I dont charge for my smash cakes but I dont give them an option wither on its design, I just make it match and say its free. Heck its worth it to them and me to offer something "free" ( you know whats charged for cakes they cover all the cost of that little cake)

I just made a 6 in smash cake today for someone and charged $10. It was pretty simple because I figure I'm not going to put a ton of detail since the 1 yr old will just rip it to shreds anyway!

I just made my granddaughter a 6" single layer with buttercream. She dug right in and ate half of it before we took it away. Never seen a baby eat cake like that. Usually they just play with it.

This cake I'm making is gonna be for a 2yr old. She said she wanted him to have a smash cake. hummm.. never made one for a 2yr old. But I like the idea of the b.day boy having his special piece.
