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?

Well Jane Asher can charge over 300 for an 10 and 6 ''
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)!
