You are going to find that prices vary. My Witon instructor told me to take the total cost of your materials and multiply that by 3. I live in a small town and would personally charge $81.25 for this type of cake, with a BC filling.

I would price by the serving for a buttercream cake. Again, as a previous poster said, you will find that pricing varies by region. I would price out bakery cakes (a few quick calls around your area) to get an idea of the going rate.

It can vary anywhere from $1.00 to $3.00 per serving, so you need to do some research and see what you feel comfortable pricing your cakes at.

Good Luck!

For only 1 layer, which will serve 28 party servings, $65
