Take everything you spent on the cake and double it. Then add in the time you spent on the cake at an hourly rate. So.... If you spent $15.00 on supplies and 4 hours on the cake ( I usually charge about $10.00 an hour) you would charge somewhere in the range of $70.00.
Some of this depends on how good the market for cakes are in your area. If I were you I would call a local bakery and ask what they would charge so you can get an idea of what the going rate is.
