A friend wants a present cake. It would be a 9 inch square, double layer cake with likely a buttercream filling and fondant decorations. This is my absolute first time making a cake by order so please give me an idea how much to charge her? p.s. I live in Canada.

Thank you so much in advance!!!!!

Do you know your cost?

Figure out your cost to make the cake then call around to see what the going rate in your area is.

Thank you both for your replies/ advice. I have a hard time figuring out the really specific stuff eg. flour, eggs, sugar. Fondant and icing are easy to calculate. I think checking around is a good idea but I hope she doesn't want to pay grocery store prices....Thanks again!
