I am trying to get everything I need together to sell cakes from my home and my biggest glitch in getting ready to launch is to understand pricing. I get how to estimate the per serving quantity of a cake (I am using the Wilton chart) but it is the up selling extras that I am having trouble comprehending. So my pricing questions are a little more specific.
Do you add a price per flower (gum paste or fondant) Do you give people so many free flowers eg first 10 flowers included any extras $2.00 sm or $2.50 lg per stem .
How do you decide which fillings should be standard and which would get a higher price, and by how much more?
Lastly if using a foam piece instead of cake, how would you charge for that?
Do you have any other tips to make pricing more readily comprehended ?

thanks everyone for helping with this!
