Thanx and have a great day.

Um....... how are they decorated? How long do you estimate that they'll take to make?

And what's the going rate for custom cakes in your area?

are they fondant or buttercream? Any special design elements that might take more time (ie gumpaste bows, fondant figures, cake flavors with expensive ingredients)?

LOL! Each one of you is grilling the OP! (I know you have to know all the answers to help her). It was just funny going from one person to another, with question, question. Hehe.

Or maybe it's just early in the morning and I'm exhausted. =o)

hahahaha! It does look like that, huh?

A good example, though, of the many variables involved in pricing "just a cake"! icon_biggrin.gif

Yep, I'll add some more. If you are adding a border, is it piped? Or is it made from a mold with fondant? Are there flowers? GP or fondant? Using ganache? Premium scratch ingredients?
