If someone asked you to make a chocolate cake with chocolate covered strawberries for 25 people, what size cake would you make and how much would you charge? I'm having a little trouble with servings and pricing. I don't know why I'm making it so difficult, but I've got to get this pricing thing down. Thanks!

I use Erlenes serving chart:

so you could do either a 9" round to serve 22 or a 10" round to serve 30 or a single layer 9X13 cake.

Pricing dependas greatly on your area. I charge $2.75 per serving for plain butter cream cakes and $1.50 per chocolate dipped strawberry

good luck

Above is my pricing page for dessert cakes. I would recommend the 10" round, adn with the choc covered strawberries on top, it would be $95,
