I have read a number of post regarding shoe box cake construction & have a few questions I hope someone can answer.

If I use a 9x13 pan and cut into 3rds and many servings will I get? (this will be the first time that I charge per serving & would like to know the approx. size of the servings as well)

Also, out of curiosity, what is the going price/serving? I have been asked to make the shoe box cake w/ gumpaste shoes (I plan on using socakes life size templates). Any idea what I should charge?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A regular 9x13 slab will feed about 25-30 some say more...I charge $50.00 for that slab..since you are planning to make a shoebox and stack it I consider this now a 3D Cake in which I charge $5.00 per serving compared to my slab price of $2.00 per serving.I would also add extra for the fondant and gumpaste work.So the serving amounts won't change but the price will...10x more work in a 3D cake than a slab.HTH

thanks Kiddiecakes....I see you are from Canada (me too). How much would you charge for 1 shoe? (again its true to size) I'm thinking that I may suggest just one b/c it' really doesn't get eaten & it will cut the cost (not to mention time for me)

I would charge about $50.00 or more for just the shoe....then again..others charge more.I don't do alot of modelling etc as I am not that great at it so I try not to upsell those items..If I took my time I could really do it but....
