I would pay about $85 for that cake, because of the roses and the cake base.

I still say charge by the # of servings and those sizes would serve 40 (if I remember right) so 40 x $3 = $120.

Your roses are very nice and the whole thing done well.

Actually, I think I may have been off on my estimates, although it's not a huge cake.  I charge more per serving for my bigger cakes  (it's a stress charge :-D)  I hope you feel you charged enough.  If you don't think you charged enough, you didn't!

AI charge more per serving for my little cakes. Those average out to ten to twelve a serving (although I don't sell them by a per serving price, just a total, usually my minimum). 50 servings and over come out around $6

I was thinking around $85 but I was not sure if its too much or too less.

AIn upstate SC, that cake would run about $90. I would charge almost $200. 2 bakeries in mu area would charge $170, 3 other bakeries in Charleston would charge about $225, and one would charge $316.

See where I'm going with this? Prices will vary. Pricing is difficult, but you'll need to decide for yourself what you charge. I know it's a broken record, but do you know your costs? At $80, how much profit will you be making? Is your time worth that profit?

Depends on whether you want to make a decent wage or $1 an hour I guess.

If that is a 6" & 8", it would serve 32-35 people. I'd charge $112 for it.

Thank you everyone!. I was thinking about close to $90.  Sorry for the late response.

AIf you have an expensive buttercream recipe you may want to consider that this technique uses a lot of it.
