Oh wow £15 :S I would have charged £72. I usually charge £2.25 per slice if it is simple inside and out, £2.50 if it is a 1 tier with more complexity or a multi-tiered simple and then £3 per slice for multi-tiered complex. Any figurines or flowers are priced extra. I do use ganache instead of buttercream so I can justify my prices based on the increase in price of ingredients.. and plus I value my time as in my day job I get almost £10/hour and over-time is time + 1/3 so I won't make a cake unless it's worth it.
