Hi everyone, was wondering if you could help me figure out size of this cake, do you think it is 8 inch and 10 inch, 6 inch and 8 inch? With each how many servings would it be in total, tried to find a serving chart but was unable. Someone asked me to give them a price for one for December, I have no idea what to charge, with them providing the toy.

Really it's impossible to tell and irrelevant anyway. How many people do they want to serve is the first question you need answered.

Here's the chart.

Even though it say Wedding cakes, its still appropriate.

That looks like an 8 and 10 inch to me, but like Leah said it's "impossible to tell. " But you can do it in whatever size that you need. How many servings do they need? The 8 and 10 inch will serve 62. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks ladies, yes that would be the first question I should have asked, how many people would need servings for. Now have to figure out with the servings and fondant work how much the price should be.

Looks to me like a 10 and 6. The space on the ledge looks bigger than 2 inches.

I looked at your other cakes and see you already know how to do the cake properly icon_smile.gif

I am not sure of the legalities of selling cake in Canada, but I would be charging around $4.50 per serving for that cake. Now remember that price is based on cost of supplies for the U.S. and could be higher in your area.

So to sum it up...
Your cakes are very good, you can definitely charge a good price.
Check and see what prices are in your area .
If that cake is a 10" and a 6" that is 50 servings and My price would be $225.
