AHi everyone,

I have a request to make this groom's cake next month and would like some feedback from fellow cake decorators as to how much I should charge. They would like it to feed about 100 people. Just to give you an idea, my base price for wedding and groom's cakes starts at $4 a serving. Thanks in advance for any input!

Well, I can tell you what I would charge for that cake, but it may not be accurate for your costs. You would need to figure out your materials cost and overhead, how many hours of labor (and how much per hour you want to charge), and profit margin to come to a price. At least you have a starting point with the $4 per serving, but if that is your base price for basic design, you would certainly need to add on to that for a 3D shaped cake.
