If you sell your cakes, and make giant cupcakes, can you tell me what you typically charge? It seems to me that it isn't as much work as some other typed of 3D cakes since the pan does a lot of the work for you. I don't want to charge the same as I would for a plain round with the same number of servings because it does seem like a specialty item. I'm just starting out and still trying to figure out costing.

If you know how many servings you get from a giant cupcake cake, then take your per slice cost and multiply. If you don't have a per slice cost, then I recommend figuring up your cost and time and calculate a per slice cost. That makes things a whole lot easier when pricing cakes.

Good luck!

I charge the same as a round. As you said the pan does the work and all you are doing is putting on icing. If they wanted something extravagant I would charge accordingly but I think they are easier to do, no perfect corners needed.
