I've been doing cakes for family and close friends who I pretty much consider to be family, so I've never really 'charged' for my cakes.  Now that I am branching out a bit I am having a horrible time trying to figure out what to charge for my cakes.  At heart I am too much of a cheapskate to ever pay for a cake :)  I recently saw a cake on here that was perfect for what I needed and tried my hand at copying it.  It came out fairly well.  My problem is that the picture of my cake has been shown to several people who want to know what it costs.  I made the cake as a bday present so there was no money involved.

The cake itself was 3 8" layers of Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting, covered in fondant.  All of my decorations, except the chseshire cat, are made out out of chocolate clay.  The cat is made out of cake pop mixture, covered in fondant.  I'm wondering what you would have charged a paying customer for this?  Thanks in advance for your help!

My price would be $100-125 depending on flavor & filling.

I agree with pp....at least $125, possibly more depending on filling.  Very cute, BTW :)
