You need to find out your cost for each size (including ingredients, labor, and overhead including any license and inspection fees) then add a profit margin that makes sense for the market price in your area.

There is a link in my signature with an article on Pricing that may help you.

Pricing varies greatly depending on where you are located. Here are my prices for sheet cakes. I am in Austin, Texas.

I price sheet cakes lower than my "custom cakes" because they take a lot less time, labor, and ingredients (no filling). One pan, no stacking, no layers. I used to hate them, but I've come to appreciate their finer virtues icon_smile.gif
