Tiered cake serving amount question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a client who wants a 2 tiered cake for a baby shower. The cake is only for 25 people. What size cakes would you recommend I use to get the right amount of servings?
Also, the cake is going to have lots of fondant decorations on it (lilly pads, frogs, a baby, cat tails, & dragonflies). The cake is otherwise chocolate & WASC & BC,. What would you charge for this cake? Thanks

I would use a 6" and 10" round

In my area which is conservative I would probably charge about $75.00 but I am sure in other areas you would charge much more.

What is your base price per serving for tiered cakes? I then add to that either by serving (like if the design is a pattern all over) or by piece (like sugar flowers) based on the degree of difficulty. My base price is $7.75 per serving and, without seeing what the decor is supposed to be, I'd probably be adding about $60 in additional decor.

Thats the problem. I'm just starting out and I don't have any base prices yet. I'm not sure how to figure that out so it can be the same for every cake so I always just start from scratch determining the price for a new cake each time.

A 5/8 would serve 28, and is a darling little cake. I do a lot of those, and they come in at $200 and up.
