Greetings everyone.. I have a question. how much should you charge for a sculpted cake? I mean I made some cakes for the store that I work at for halloween. I have a $75.99 price tag on the scull that I call Henry and My frankenstein is priced at $95.99 is that too much? Some people that come into the store love the cakes and the art work but quickly say that price is too much. The scull would feed about 25 people and the frankenstein would feed about 40. Its an upperscale store so I didnt feel I was pricing then too high. I have my cakes posted on here in the halloween section. Thanks for your help.

That's actually cheap for that quality of cake. For carved cakes I start at $4 per serving. With those cakes I'd charge $100 for the skull and $120 for the Frankenstein. Those people are way off base, your prices are very reasonable.
