I know this has been discussed previously, but I am not having any luck finding it... I was just wondering what everyone charges for dummy cakes? I have a MOB wanting a quote for a 3 teired wedding cake, and am not sure on how to price it..TIA

Dummies are usually priced at 80%, or more, the cost of a real cake. The dummies aren't cheap, as there's often shipping involved, and they require the same amount of material to decorate.

That's what I was thinking, same amount of work for the decorating, so really shouldn't be very much cheaper.

Yup.. I charge 80% of what it would cost in cake simply because there is not torting adn filling and icing... just plop on the fondant (well not plop but you know what I mean) and decorate. The bulk of any cake cost is in the hours of decorating.
