Well that all depends on a lot of things. lol

Do you normally not sell your cakes? The first thing you need to do is figure out all of your costs.

This would include...
ingredients, supplies (cake boards, supports, box, etc.), cost of utilities used, licensing and insurance, rent (if any) etc.

It's hard to just tell you what you should charge when I have no idea what your costs are to make that cake and how much profit you want to make.

I personally would charge between $4-$5 a serving for that cake and I have it as 30 to 32 servings. Than I would charge extra for the gp shoes on top...probably $15 to $20 just for that.
