Im going to make a cake for a small baby shower, unfortunately she wants the price before i buy everything, so i cant know how much things will be. Here is what she wants, (im in the Westchester, NY area)

The shower is for about 10 ppl
red velvet cake (box $1.79)

the cake will be cut into 3-4x4 building blox covered and decorated in fondant

there will be a teddybear somewher on the cake made by either fondant or gumpaste

I will also be covering the base with blue fondant and white polkadots

I called the local baker and they dont even do that but for a shower cake its $27.95 and then to add the toy blox its 17.95

What do u guys think?

hi, i personally would ask at least $60.00 for what you are going to do. Covering the board, covering the 3 little blocks with b/c and the fondant, etc. and the little bear. lot of work. Maybe $75.00. hth hope you get more answers i,m in N.C. and i could get this price.

Thanx so much for the reply, im a little reluctant because if she can get that at a bakery for about $50.00 then why would she come to me? I just dont want to scare ppl away with high you think $50 is too little? God i thought this would be so easy!!

Thanx for the answer tho that helped alot!
