My sister and I make cakes. We bake everything from scratch. For this cake we made all the pieces out of gumpaste and satin ice fondant. We spent a lot of hours on this cake, carving and then covering it with the fondant as well as painting on the silver luster powder on all the pieces. But the main detail work was the hand painted logo on the front. We are still beginners and we were not sure about pricing. We charged $150 for this one. Do you think it was too high or too low? click on link below

How much did the ingredients cost for the cake? How many hours did each of you spend on this cake, and how much (dollars per hour) do you both value your time? How much do you spend in overhead costs annually (rent, insurance, licenses), and about how many cakes do you make per year?

Beautiful work! It definitely was well worth the $150.
