Over here in Germany (as a military spouse and regardless of my day time career) we are not allowed to bake cakes and sell them, as it creates competition for the commissary. So the bakers over here has to either charge illegally or give cakes away. I give my cakes away and if they want to tip me they can (most often the tip = the cost of the cake or close).

Luau cake I would normally charge $150. It took me 15 hours from start to finish to make this cake in one day. The request was a simple cake to match the baby shower invites...but nothing that screamed "baby".

20 Year Retirement Cake - This cake I would charge $250. The ribbons were all the retiree's ribbons from his service career, which took me 9 hours to make all 15 ribbons using fondant. This cake took me in total about 3 days (keep in mind I have a full time job with the DoD) from baking to decorating.

There is more than one way to cut a cake, thus, there are more ways to achieve one goal. The only thing I can do is provide information based upon my experience and if you ask, I will do so with respect and professionalism.

One of the things that helped me understand pricing was the CakeBoss software and also creating my own price list...saved me hours of time and brain cells trying to figure out how much to charge....you know, a lot of time goes into figuring out the right price for a cake you just poured your time and creative effort into. So I can totally relate to your post.

"I" would charge $135 for the cake. I'm not for sure of your cake sizes, it looks like a 10 inch and an 8 inch round cake. $90 for the cake and $45 for the supplies, fondant and decor. I pass on the cost of boxes and boards to the customers as a separate unit.

I am finding this all very interesting i am in uk and for a 3tier stacked wedding cake (6 8 & 10 inch) i would charge £150 (gbp) but if i did the msame cake for a birthday or other occasion it would be a lot less, i did 2 tier stacked 6 & 10 , and charged £50. People just wouldnt pay loads unless its for a wedding. The shops are the same too

Told my SIL that I wouldn't charge less than $60.00 for this one if she was paying for it (not a chance that would ever happen), especially since I had only 3.5 hours to complete it. It was a good thing I had a 9 inch round vanilla layer in the freezer, and that I always keep fondant, gumpaste, candy clay, and buttercream on hand just in case.

I am so glad I found this forum. I have made a few cakes, all for free to family or friends. I'm not sure what I would charge. I was asked for a price on a wedding cake of a 3 tiered cake, and I estimated it at $300 and never heard back from the girl. So anyways, here are a few pictures of my cakes, if anyone can give me a guess as to what I should have charged I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Would $50 be about right for a cake like this? I only bake freebies for family and friends, but I'm curious. My technique has improved a little since I did this cake. I also now have a pretty cake stand.

I also live in a very rural area where people just don't spend a lot of money.

ACK! I can't figure out how to link a picture! If you just go to my photos (there are only about 8 of them) it is the fall cake with the leaves and acorns...

Thanks!
