I have an order for a Gnome cake (but it's lying on it's back, not standing). It's stills sculpted and detailed.

This is a groom's cake with other desserts instead of a wedding cake.
It's more of a "show" cake than to serve so they said to keep it under 50 servings.

Would you price this as a sculpted cake? Or just as your reg. price/serving + how ever much time it took?

Thanks ~ icon_smile.gif

Here's the photo she sent me as a reference. I plan to change it so it's not identical. Is this cake artist on here? She's really talented. icon_smile.gif

No idea what I'm going to charge... (breaks out calculator)

Well that looks like more of a shaped sheet cake, as opposed to a 3-D sculpted cake, if that makes any sense icon_smile.gif It wouldn't take as much time to do as something 3-D, butit's still going to take more time than your average cake, so I'd go ahead and charge at least $150 if it's 50 servings.

Thanks~ I was thinking $100.00, but I like you're idea better. icon_rolleyes.gif
