How much are you spending in ingredients for the cake, and how many hours will it take you to complete the order (including prep, baking, decorating, and cleanup)? Also, how much overhead do you have? (Some states require licensed and inspected commercial kitchens to legally sell food, so if you live in one of those states you'll need to find commercial kitchen space and include that cost in your price.)
Our starting price for that cake would be in the $200-250 range plus delivery, this is in CA so it includes commercial kitchen rent and additional overhead for inspection fees, etc.
