Most people charge for the top tier by the number of servings the cake provides. Use the Wilton servings guide to determine the number of servings and multiply that by the amount you charge per slice.

It is normal to charge for how many servings the cake is for regardless of how many people will actually eat it. The couple can have 50 friends round on their anniversary and share the 6 cake if they want!
Do you normally charge per serving?

I charge for the ENTIRE cake!!

I make sure they know that the top tier is included in the price but not in the serving count for the reception. Make sure you ask if they want to save one. I have had several "second wedding" cakes where the customer just prefers to serve the top rather than save it!
