I'm making a cake similar to the one on the link below for a really close family friend (for her godsons 1st bday) and I don't know what to charge her. I want to give her a discount because she knows my family so well but I don't want to lose out considering I'm only 22 and I'm going to be stuck in on the friday of halloween weekend. How do you usually charge family and friends?

Check out the above thread.
I do all my cakes for family and friends, and yes if they ask me to do a cake for them I charge them, full price.
