Hi all!
I just received a request for a Stilletto heel cake to serve 50, having never done anything like this before I have no ideas on what to charge.
Can anyone give me some ballpark figures? And any tips on this type of cake?
Thanks so much!

Is this going to be 3-d? Are you going to use my 2-d pattern?
You could use my pattern and put the cut-out shoe(s) on a sheet cake to get enough servings.
Answer those ?s and we can help you further on pricing.

As a general rule of thumb any sculpted cake should be no less than $5 per serving. That # is from the amount of cake you start with before you sculpt any.

Good point, I'm not sure whether it will be 2-D or 3-D, actually I'm hoping for 2-D as a 3-D shoe scares me!
Thanks for the tips, I'll qualify what is desired and might post back!

I've seen a 3-D candy mold of a stiletto heel shoe. You could make one and put that on a sheet cake to give more dimension to the cake.

Just found out that this is being requested as a 3-D cake....ahhhhh, I have no idea about this. Is there a tutorial/template available, any help would be greatly appreciated!
