How much does it cost you to make it? How much time will it take you? How much profit do you want?

The problem with telling someone what to price their cake as is that it varies greatly. There is no one price for cakes. The ingredients you use could be more expensive than the ones used by someone else that can buy in bulk. Or someone else can use more expensive higher quality ingredients than someone else. If you just bake from a cake mix, or from a doctored cake mix, or a scratch recipe there is going to be different costs involved.

Some areas can ask for a higher costs, such as larger cities because the cost of living is higher.

There are way too many things to factor in that there that one person really can't just give another a price.
