Im in Nor Cal so my pricing is most likely going to be higher than yours due to the market. BUT my basic fondant prices start at $4 a slice and with all the piping on this one I think I'd probably charge 4.50 to $5 a slice. HTH

It's a very pretty cake! I would also say $4-5 a slice.

That's not piping. It's a Tappit. I just looked at it.

if that's a tappit, then those are most likely fondant accents...I would charge $2.50/serv. for that cake Also, I would have the customer locate, and purchase the feathers and have them to me within 2 weeks before the wedding!

You'd do better getting quotes on prices from local bakeries/cake decorators

Stick to your guns , If they have a cow , let them have it, Our time is what they cant afford. 2.50 is a great price for cake, I get anywhere 2.50 to 2.75 according to how much detail this is for BC only. Fondant is more.

Tappits are such crazy little things.. one day I can get them to come right out other days it takes twice as long!! I agree.. if that's tappits it would be double! icon_smile.gif
