I'm having trouble adding an attachment... hope it works!

I am wondering how much to charge for this cake. It is Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting and the shoe is carved from Yellow cake with Vanilla Buttercream. If the photo is not working I have the cake posted in my photos (it is the "marathon" cake). I am new to the whole business side of cake making and was told to charge around $90, but am very unsure. Any suggestions would be appreciated!]

You really need to figure out cost of materials, how long it will take you to make start to finish, how much per hour you want to get paid, and then add 20%-30% profit on top of that. Our sculpted cakes start at $200.
