I am making a mickey mouse face cake. I am not sure how I should charge them. I am just doing a 10" and 2 6". I came up with $110 for a price. It is going to be frosted in buttercream and the face will be done in fondant. What does everyone think? Is that price to high. She is also getting a smash cake.

It looks like a one layer cake, so I figure based on the Wilton chart, cutting each piece about 2x2 inches, around 31 servings. For me that would mean $93 without the fondant face. I'd probably upcharge it about $10 for the fondant face since it covers the whole top of the cake.

I can't speak about your area....but that's what it would cost from me if I were to do something similar.
