I was asked to do this cake next July and was just wondering what you would charge for this. The picture shown said it serves 44. The cake will be for 200 plus an extra 6 inch. Thanks for all the help.

The cake is "The Fairytale Begins" by Wilton...

It must be a miss print on the servings, even by Wiltons serving guide this cake feeds 118 people with wedding cake servings or 1x2 in servings. A 6" round only serves 8 more people. So to accommodate 200 you would need to either add more satellite cakes or add a 14" and make it a 4 tiered cake with a 6" round satellite cake that would yield you 204 servings. This in my pricing guidelines would be a level 2 buttercream cake at over 200 servings I charge $4.25 per serving so $867 to serve 204 or shown as is serving 118 it is $6.00 per serving so $708.

Wow! Thanks for the help and clarification. If I had been paying attention to the servings then I would have caught that! I thought my prices where reasonable but wanted to see what everyone else thought.

Thanks again
