curious as to what you think should be charged for this cake? 1-14" pina colada, 1-12" red velvet, 1-12" devils food, 1-10" white and an 8" red velvet topper. all buttercream and the bride is taking care of the flowers. Any suggestions? It's my first wedding cake.

I think it all depends on your area. Maybe $2.50 or $3.00 a serving. THat is a pretty cake. Love the colors of the flowers!

I am in Bakersfield Ca and here it would be about $2.50 maybe a little higher in Rancho...

It really depends on your overhead, It is against the law in California to sell items baked in your home , there is no legal way to sell a cake without being licensed here.

I am licensed and inspected to sell out of my uncles restaurant so my overhead is very low, free kitchen = lower price for cakes.

That said at $2.50 per serving the cakes you describe would total 252 wedding servings.
14"=78
12"=56
12"=56
10"=38
8"=24

So it would be ... $630

I am not sure if that is how many servings your bride needs and that is why you have your sizes , The cakes in the photo appear to be smaller than the sizes you have listed.
