Calculate cost of ingredients, estimate the time you think it will take from start to finish. Figure out how much you want to charge per hour (We charge $10/hour for basic work, $15 for more complicated). Add cost of ingredients and labor together, then add your profit (usually 20%-30%) and add any overhead. HTH!

Thanks for the pricing tip. I always struggle with pricing. Especially now that I am getting into more custom cakes.
