What part don't you know how to price?

Do you have a price per serving? If not, then you need to figure that out. You also need to figure how much you spend to make the cake. That way you can even know if you are making any money.

As far as the edible image, if I was just putting it on with basic borders I probably wouldn't charge extra. There is an added cost for them but if it saves you in time from having to pipe alot of decorations then I figure it evens out in the long run. If you do have some piping over borders then I'd just take on the cost of the edible image after you figure out how much you are charging for the 11x15.
