I recently did a cake similar to this and I said at the time that I would do another one for $8 million dollars. It was a 9x13 and the apps were TINY! icon_eek.gif I did it for $4.00 a serving for 45 servings which make it $180.00. I would charge more next time! HTH

Pish, I love your answer! $8,000,000 icon_biggrin.gif

Depending on the intricacy of each app, $5-!5 each--but don't be afraid to go higher if it's a nutso one-- Plus the per serving price--but add it all up and give it as one price is how I would do it.

Each one is artwork & should get an art fee.

Hahaha...love the $8 million dollars..Thats a lot of work!!!!!!!!!!!... Even for a small cake the work is not in the cakes is in the bottons. This cant be charge by servings..In a smaller cake you still would have to do the same amount of work and smaller, wich it's even more difficult.

I would say..$700 and Im being kind..lol..I think I would avoided or use edibles..hahaha
