I am new to baking.  I have done some thins for free to get some exposure.  I want to start with homemade layer cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pies ect.  How do I determine what I will charge?  I know I won't be able to price as low as supermarkets.

This topic has been discussed extensively. Use the search box and type in "how to price cakes" or "jason_kraft pricing cakes" and learn how to do the math. You may also benefit from learning how to write a business plan. 
And make sure you are compliant with food safety laws in your area, some municipalities require a license and/or an inspection before you can sell food to the public.
Good luck! Welcome to the forums.
