Someone has asked me to bake a castle cake (2 tiers, 8" and 12") with a sugar bow at the front. How much would you charge for a cake like this?

What kind of cake, sponge/fruit? How detailed is the decoration going to be? Do you already own the cake kit, or are you going to have to buy it?

castle cake So I would point that out to the customer. Whatever you charge under that would seem a bargain. Sorry that is no help I honestly have no idea but you do great cakes so make sure you charge your worth.

Its going to be a sponge cake. I quoted £300 for a 3 tier cake (the castle kit I quoted an extra £30). They are more likely to order a 2 tier as 3 is too much cake. If Jane Usher quotes £300 for 2 then maybe I have underpriced.

For sponge 3D castles, I charge £5 per serving, an 8 & 12 = 80 servings (all my cake tiers are 4.5-6in tall), so £400. Your cake will have 30 more servings than that Asher cake - so, yes, you underpriced (she charges £7 per serving - but you are paying a premium for the name, of course)!
