Ok so I am going to be making my first cake that I will be charging for soon. They want princess cake but not exactly sure what they want yet. But they think they want a princess doll cake, or maybe 2 because of how little it serves, what should I charge for these and what is the basics of pricing?

Some people calculate their cost and multiply it by 3.

You can take your cost for ingredients and electricity and water and then estimate how many hours it will take you (including shopping, cleaning up and decorating) giving yourself a more than minimum wage pay...add them up!

here is a good topic that TexasSugar goes into great detail on how to price a cake.
