I would try to get her to go with an 8" so have more room to make it look like the picture and charge $50.00. Cake,Filling,buttercream,fondant and fondant/tylose plaque and those little stripes take some time to get them just right. Good Luck.

How much do you charge per serving?

Just multiply your per serving charge by 12.

I would charge $4.00 a serving, but would also have a $75.00 minimum so (either a 6 inch or 8 inch would be $75.00 for me).

I use the following chart for my serving sizes - it's more realistic (for me and my clients) for party sized servings

Love love this chart!!!! So detailed and helpful. I love that it even has grooms cake which includes top tier....I offer a free 1 yr anniversary cake so the couple can use the top tier as serving for wedding. Having both equations is so awesome!!
