Pricing questions are always tricky because it will depend greatly on the area you're in and how much cakes sell for there.
Maybe suss out the competition in your area icon_smile.gif

Where are you located trendy? Baking from a licensed home kitchen (lower overhead), rental kitchen (higher per hour cost) or storefront (higher overhead and maybe payroll). All of that factors into pricing.
