How much do you charge per serving on a fondant covered wedding cake?

The price will be the sum of your ingredient costs, labor costs (which can vary considerably depending on the design and the wage you pay yourself), per-order overhead costs (in some areas an inspected commercial kitchen is required to legally sell cakes), and your profit margin (typically in the 20-30% range).

Depending on the legal requirements in your area this can range from $2/serving to $10/serving or more. Our starting price (in CA, which requires a licensed and inspected kitchen) for multi-tier cakes covered in fondant is $5/serving, but the typical order is in the $6-7/serving range.
