A co worker of mind would like me to make a cake for her boyfriend's birthday ...

Please advise on how much you would charge for a :

One layer six inch round
Cut in half and filled with chocolate buttercream
Covered in fondant with ribbon roses "or" gumpaste bow
Either way it would include a fondant border

Thank you in advance everyone !!! thumbs_up.gif

I charge way more per serving for a small cake like that, since I don't keep them frozen on hand, and I don't like to halve recipes. But I'll do it. But I still charge way more. I tend to price them on a per cake basis.

When you say one layer, this cake will only be like 2-3 inches tall? Yikes.

I'll assume you still mean a straight up cake, at least 4 to 5 inches tall.

$75-$80 here.
