Please Help!How much do I charge for a 2 tier wedding cake for 30 people?
I have an old friend who has requested a wedding cake in NJ. 2nd wedding, 2 tier fondant and about 4 large flowers some piping and basic flavors. I am an at home baker and this is my first wedding cake. So excited. How much should I charge?

buttercream? fondant? most bakers/designers charge by the serving....
example...buttercreamcakes $3.00 per serving so if you do a 6" cake and an 8" cake (serves about 36)
you would charge $108.

fondant $4.00 per serving for the same size $145...
Now these are not the price Im telling you to charge, or the prices that I charge, they are just being used as an have to decide what you would charge.

Check with bakeries in your area and also by by your ability... Hope this helps

Make sure you charge for how many servings the cake makes not just how many servings they need.
