Hi There,

Just got my first cake order!!! Yay!

I haven't worked out prices or anything yet. Has anyone go tips on:

What sort of cake sizes feed what sort of people numbers?

What do you charge for your hours of work?

Any other cost suggestions???

Thank you

Here's a chart to help you with the servings. It's the third column from the left.

As for the price of each cake, I would suggest that you call and check with some local custom cake shops and find out what they charge. Then determine a price based on your skill.
