Good Afternoon!
I was wondering if you could give me some guidance on how I can make this character into a cake. At first she said she just wanted him on the cake which was fine because i would have made him out of colored chocolate, then she said she wants something 3D! I don't even know where to begin, if you could give a little guidance, it would be greatly appreciated.

I am attaching a picture.

deinesoar Thanks for your prompt response.

I came up with a few ideas that i presented to her as options, the one she chose was a cupcake tear away cake with the frosting that looks like grass, on top of that a ball shaped cake and a little WaWa thing on top made out of chocolate.

I am thinking of putting columns a little bit above the cupcakes with a cakeboard to hold the ball shaped cake. What do you think?

Oh and once again I think I under charged, but since it is the first time doing this..... $110.00

Thanks again!

Columns should work to hold the ball. As for what to charge, girl, that is a hard method to settle on and you'll have to do some comparing to local competition as well as considering costs of ingredients. After a year I've finally settled on a set cost per serving with additional fees for specialty things like a carved cake, etc. It seems to average out over time for my profit vs labor and it's the easiest to follow for consistant pricing. Good luck. Can't wait to see how your cupcake cake turns out!
