AHello-

I made this cake for my son's 3rd birthday and I've recently began my at home bakery business. I'm torn on how much to charge. I was thinking $50- not sure if that's too much or under priced. It's a 8" triple layer- all fondant- the cake toppers not included.. Thank you in advance for all your replies!

AI'm new to the home baking business too...btw, beautiful cake....after looking up cake pricing, I found alice's pricing matrix and shot in my amounts ( a day of fun lol), I'd be in that ballpark. Check around your area to see if you are in comparison. Won't hurt. It's homemade, with love. People forget that's what they are buying:D. Happy baking

You've started your business but don't have your pricing (or costing) set yet?
