Hello Everyone!  I recently made my first wedding cake and I am wondering if someone could give me some insight on pricing.  This cake is a 14", 10" and 6" with gum paste flowers, I delivered it to the reception location and set the the cake.  What should I have charged for it?

I would be around $650-$700.  Pretty cake.  Are the letters handmade?

I'm coming in around $500 but that is for my area.  Also, depending on he flavors of the cake, filling and frosting, my price could be a good bit more.  Depending on the flavors, I have an up-charge since the ingredients to make those flavors are expensive.

about $585-$625. (but it would also depend on what is on the inside--a basic 2 layer WASC with a plain buttercream filling would be less than that range.  Since i'm baking scratch with more expensive ingredients I charge accordingly).

Jason's late... How much were your ingredients and how long did it take? If you need help learning to price, read Jason's blog. Or use the CC search box.
