How much do you or would you charge for a pillow cake? I need to have a "worth" on the pillow cake I am donating to a silent auction tomorrow.
This one does not have tassles, it's covered with ganache and fondant. and has a spray of flowers laying on top...well will I should say I'm not quite done yet!
Thanks for your opinions!

I think it depends on the cost of your ingrediants and the time you put into it. Also the servings. You dont say how big it is. I always look at how many servings it is, then calculate an average price per serving, then add for extra time spent on it above usual, extra trimmings like gumpaste, fillings, etc. Its hard to give you a price hon, when it is so individual to each creation. Really its materials + what you think your worth for your skill and time.

That falls in the category of sculpted cakes in my book. For sculpted cakes I charge $25/hour and that applies to the time it takes to make any sugar flowers as well.
