I have someone that wants this cake. I think I can figure out how to put it together, but I have no idea how many servings it would be or what to charge. She needs at least 20 servings. Thanks for the help.

This is actually a 2-D cake and not a 3-D cake so figuring the servings is a bit easier.

For at least 20 servings do a 1 layer 8" for the body, 1 layer 6" for the head and another 1 layer 6" cut and carved for the nose/mouth and a one layer 6" cut in half for the feet.

Total servings before carving will be 28 Wilton Party Servings, the extra 8 servings will cover what you'll have to cut off to round the edges and do the nose/mouth and toes.

When you calculate your price though charge for the full 28 servings not what you end up with after carving.
Someone needs to pay for that cake and it isn't you.

Here it is from the side, it's from Black Bird Catering.

Thanks for the help. I gave her a price of $100, but she didn't want to spend that much. I figured she wouldn't. People in my area want something fancy for grocery store prices. Oh well. I think she's going to go with a sheet cake with a little fondant monkey on it.
