We all know the cost of cake varies greatly, depending on where you live...So just for fun, how much would you charge for this cake and list where you live or the region you live in...

 

lets say this is an 8inch and 6 inch, fondant covered cake.

 

I am in Louisville, Kentucky and it would cost between $125-$135 (based on celebration cake servings)

 

To give the baker credit for her beautiful cakes, I pulled the picture from google images and it came from this site, http://www.happycakesbyrenee.com/cakes.html

I quoted an example using AU$  - but there isn't much difference as we are still sitting at  94c  -    $325US

But the cost of our raw ingredients are SO much higher ..(if I am to believe the prices I see on here)
