Ok, thi sis my first attempt at this cake. Thanks to Athena08's cake for inspiration. This is a half chocolate and half vanilla pound cake. Buttercream filling and icing with fondant accents. Butterflies are for decor only. It is about 2 ft long and 1 ft wide at widest point. 2 layers high. Again, I know there are flaws in it but just wondering what some of you would charge for doing a cake like this. My friend wanted just a sheet cake (couldn't afford more) for her daughter with "something Hannah Montana" on it. I decided to suprise her with this but if I get more orders off it I want to price accordingly.
Oh by the way...it is purple with edible glitter, just doesn't show color well in pic.
what size cakes did you start with before shaping?
Like 42 servings give or take a few?
$4 a serving would be $168
So $175 sounds good.
If you go $3--that's pretty low you could do $125 -- no lower that that.
How about $150
Geez pound cake--you can get a ton of servings though. $175!
Sweetcakes it was 18x26 to start with. (2 9x13s put together).
Thanks K8memphis. I only charged her $25 for the cake she wanted but like I said I wanted to do this one, if for no other reason for more practice. I can't make sheetcakes all the time and learn anything lol. I had figured about $60 for it but I guess I really don't know how to price myself do I? I like your figures MUCH better than mine!!!
You also have to figure, this is a cake you cant get in a grocery store and a speciality shop would charge you for it....also depends on where you live.
I would also say 125.00. Your time effect, and the work.
