What are all of the costs involved for you to do the cake? Then, you need to charge for your labor and add a 20%-30% profit. That's how I determine my pricing. HTH

Don't forget your overhead costs (i.e. liability insurance, inspection fees, utilities), annualized and divided on a per-order basis.

I figure out my costs (including my per hour rate) and double it. You will figure out a per slice cost over time (mine for fondant is $4 a slice for a plain, or very simple, fondant covered cake) that will cover your expenses. As you add more time for more elaborate decorations/flowers/piping you will also add cost to your per slice price. I'd say, because I rarely do a "plain" or "simple" cake, my per slice cost for a fondant cake is usually around $5 per slice.

When figuring the costs out remember to add in supplies, your hourly rate, insurance, any kitchen rental fees, etc. to come up with the cost.
