Hi everyone. I'm  not a professional...just started baking...but I seem to have somewhat of a knack for the decorating. My friend wants me to do her sister in laws babyshower cake and sneds me this pic. Except she wants elephants. I have no clue what I should be charging  for something like this. I can't seem to post pics in here so if u could check out the link and let me know what u think I would appreciate it lots!! Thank u!

In case u can't  see it for some reason its a 3 tier cake, chevron middle tier, and instead of bears as original she wants 3 molded elephants on top. She also wants a plain pink fondant bottom unlike the pic that has buttercream roses.

i would charge my normal fondant rate plus $21- $30 for the elephants -- but i would incorporate it into one price to avoid being nickel & dimed -- so if it's a 100 serving cake and if for example you charge $5 a serving for your base price then i'd tell her $530 plus delivery and tax --

something like that
