I'm almost embarrassed to post my cake prices but here goes nothing

For the Barney cake I charged 90$, and it was all my creation, I actually had to draw her a sketch and send her a picture because she couldn't find any cakes she liked on google  
It served 25-30 people



This cake I charged 66$ for it
It was for 10-15 people 
One of my early cakes 




For this hello kitty cake I charged 66$ also

@kandyslife ‍ you're totally undercharging, there's a lot of work that went into those cakes!

I agree the her ^^^; you should almost double your prices.  AND.............you are thumbing your nose at the copyright laws.  You really can get into BIG trouble if the creators of those characters ever come around.  There have been many decorators who have lost even their homes by making such cakes.
