Looks really nice - make sure you don't sell it cheap!
How big was the cake (esp the no. of portions) and also how much time did you spend on it - baking time, time spent on making decorations, icing etc?
The minimum price would be based on costs:
Cost of ingredients + time taken (set a per hour rate for yourself) + cost of electricity and any other utilities (although this is a tricky one) + cost of cake board & box.....
.....Add a little bit of a profit margin to it and you have your net price.
