Hi,,,Just wondering if you carve a cake do you charge more for the cake compared to a regular sheet cake?
I have to make one in March and have never done it before.

Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

If you mean that you're carving a 3-D standup cake, absolutely charge more! I can spend longer on a 3-D cake than I do on wedding cakes, depending on what they are!

Actually, it is a flat cake being carved. It is a NE Patriot cake, carved like the patrio logo.
Here is the design.

I'd charge more than a regular flat cake because of the time it will take to shape it and then ice the sides on the cut edges. Not as much as a super complicated one, but more than a rectangular sheet.
