Price the Cake 2/11/2013

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

I thought i'd start another Price the Cake - One for a Birthday related cake ! 

 

This isn't my cake - But I did recreate it as a 10 inch round and sold it for $110 - no toys included in that price (I'm located in Florida)

 

Just like to see what others would charge. :) Thanks!

Awesome Lego cake!  I really like it.  It's so much more awesome than the giant lego cake.

 

Are we saying this is a 10"?  Or a 9"?

 

I'm assuming 9" figures not included.

 

$75

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

For a 9", 30 servings, at $3.50 each, no figures, would be $105.

10" I can't get 30 servings out of that, tops 24. In Chicago burbs it's $75.00.

so far we average about $2.67 a serving

 

using wilton chart 39 servings for a 10 unless 32 servings for a 9 was specified--4-5" tall

 

had to pick a standard to go by

 

we range from $1.54 to $3.50 per serving

 

why isn't a fondant cake coming out higher i wonder

Perhaps I should have mentioned that my 10" "only"  feeds 20 ... we have larger servings here in the Netherlands.

yes--it's just a loose average

 

just trying to give it a perspective. a cohesion

 

and trying to find a common denominator between different sized cakes and servings

 

i just landed on arguably the most universal standard--wilton wedding chart

 

not fully scientific i guess just a math computation

Yes, when we post a cake for the day we kind of need to specify the details so we are all quoting the same cake.

I wasn't sure if this was a 9 or 10 so I quoted the 9 that is most popular.

Actually, the op stated this is Not the 10" cake she recreated. If you read my response, I stated I want certain if we were doing the cake pictures or the 10".

Thanks for all the answers! (These threads are pretty fun, and very informative!)

 

I was kind of surprised the prices weren't higher either.  It took me about 3 hours to make the fondant/cut all the pieces and place it on the cake. Plus the time to bake/board/box/ingreidents etc...  Also  I did do it as a 10 inch for my price, which I state you can get 25-30 servings.  A 9inch I would think around 20-25 servings at a price of $92
