I would probably charge about $200 US. That's a lovely cake and design! Usually everyone who wants soccer cakes wants a darn 3d soccer ball - i hate doing those. This is a beautiful way to go. Love it!

AIt really depends in the area you are in and how good your cakes are. If you don't know how much to charge you can always charge by the slice to make it easy. So say a cake feds 56 then 56x$3 for example. Of course you have to come up with what your cakes are worth per slice. Remember to charge more for fondant then buttercream too. I have seen cakes prices from.$.97¢ (walmart) to $18.00 a slice. I'm sure big city's can charge more then a small town. You will find you will need to adjust your prices at some point. Hope this helps :-)
