I did one similar to this one. It was an 11x15 for $30.00. That is the basic rate on sheet cakes around my area.

Wow, im giving these cakes away..... I never thought it would go for that much, but It is very time consuming. This cake to me about 4 or 5 1/2 hours to do all by myself. Is that normal?

I was thinking like $75-85. You also have to add in the extra time and cost to decorate the cake board if you are planning on decorating like the one on the pix. Just my opinion
