How much will it cost you to make it, including time to shop, bake and clean up? And how much time will it take you? My minimum for a carved cake is $175 to 200 because they take a long time to do.

So sorry for the scattered way I posted this on was on the last 15 minutes of my lunch break when she text me with a pic of what she want and I was in such a rush I forgot to post the pic... I was going to do the can out of cake because I have never worked with RCT.

hmmm--i would do the can for about $45 give or take and then add on the # of sevings times your per serving rate for the base cake

 

looks like that's on a square cake rather than a 'sheet' cake which often is a rectangle if that's of any matter

 

that's a really cute cake!

i would not differentiate the price of the can and the price of the cake
