I made these cakes for the Halloween Carnival at my daughters' school. I need to give them a suggested price when I drop them off. I'm really new at this and not sure where to start. Can you help me out?

Cake #1- "Fall is in the Air" 8" double layer vanilla caramel cake with choclate buttercream frosting. Pumpkins and leaves are made from MMF.

Cake #2- "Pumpkin Patch Ghosts" 10" single layer 'Darn Good Chocolate Cake' covered in MMF. Ghosts are fondant & Gumpaste, pumpkins are fondant.

Cake #3- "Mini Ghosts" Individual cakes made from mini bundt pans and covered with MMF. There are eight of them I was thinking $5 each. Is that even close?

Sorry, I double-posted the mini-ghosts. It's the first time I've posted pictures and I had no clue what I was doing!

i wouls say $35 for the 8" cake with the single pumpkin. $5 per ghost is reasonable if not low (i am assuming they are like jumbo cupcakes/muffin size) and maybe $35 for the 10" but if it were double layer i would have said $50. there was a lot of work done on the 10" but the serving size is low becuase it is single layer. gluck hth
