I recently made a cake for a friend, and I only charged for the ingredients. I am awaiting my inspection to become permitted to bake at home so I can sell cakes to the public, and I could use some help with pricing. I figured that the cake cost about $50 for ingredients, board, etc. and it took me about 8 hours to bake, decorate, etc. The cake in question is the Millennium Falcon cake in my gallery(i cant figure out how to post the pic in this message!) It is the size of 2 half sheets stacked. My estimation gives me a retail of about $200. What do some of you experienced business owners think? Thanks in advance for any help.
