Hi, I did this cake for my sisters baby shower a few months back. I am now starting to get requests from customers for it. I have added up my cost of ingredients and supplies, however this cake took me a lot more time than most cake do (maybe I was being over picky cuz it was my baby sis hehe) and Im not sure how much to really charge for my time. So My question is. What would you charge/pay for this cake. Im just trying to get a feel for an amount here- I know no one can give me an exact amount. Thanks

The picture will not upload in this post...Its in my pics. The Baby blocks cake. Thanks

The standard pricing answer around here may not be what you're looking for but it's definitely true:

Figure your ingredients, overhead (insurance, license fee, accountant, rent, etc), profit, & wage for yourself (bonus that you've made it once although you'll be somewhat faster next time). Add all that up & you'll know a fair price!
